MMXX Bible Verse of the Day


Written by:

The verse selected for today is Psalms 139:23-24

The King James version reads:

Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

What this verse means

The flow of the Psalm as a whole. David has been accused of not being loyal to God. This is the background. And so he responds. In vs. 1-18 he appeals to God, ‘God, you know everything about me; you know my commitment to you.’ Then in vs. 19-22 he makes his loyalty to God clear.

‘God, I hate evildoers.’ He shows himself to be on God’s side. And this lead us to our verses where he gives an open-ended invitation, ‘God, continue to search and know me’ – just in case there is anything to the accusation.
