Pleading for Divine kindness, which, in King David’s rarefied perception is a source for solace. Israel’s inspired poet then expresses hope that G-d’s compassion come his way, believing only it will lavish him with long life! Enigmatic and in need of elucidation from the get-go; the plot thickens as our Sages frame these dual aspirations in tandem. This penetrating, profound insight into the Psalm’s precise verbiage, order of appearance, and deeper meanings behind the nuanced biblical terminology provides lessons for higher living and greater fulfilment. (Psalm 119, verses 76-77)
