Expressing his savory adulation for G-d’s Torah, the Psalmist employs magnificently piquant euphemism; rich in meaning and glazed in allegorical flavor. The Torah, he hums is “sweet to my palate,” even “more so than honey.” Tasting the rich texture of this confectionery metaphor reveals a delightful range of meaning. Some of our classic commentaries see the verbiage as a precise, whilst others wax poetic maintaining it to be metaphorical – as spiritual poetry strumming strings of our soul. Yea, Torah is a cerebral experience yet ultimately a journey of faith! (Psalm 119, verses 103-104)
