From Kenneth Robertson’s Facebook this morning:

I’ve always dreaded the repetitiveness of Psalm 119, and recently the daily lectionary readings I follow brought me to it again. I braced myself for the slog: but then I remembered when a seminary professor counseled us to substitute “Christ” or “way of Christ” for every reference to the law/testimonies/statutes etc, since Christ is the fulfillment of the law that the psalmist was praising. So I tried it.

New favorite psalm.

What a wonderful insight. It strikes me this could be useful throughout the Old Testament.
