News Item 249. Mizmor 119-020 (Yearning)

On Friday July 8, the 20th pasuk of Mizmor 119 (Yearning) was posted to the Tehillim section.  

In this pasuk David gives us a sense of the yearning he has developed for the words and thoughts of the Torah. In effect, he feels as though his deepest soul is almost breaking apart as it reaches out to comprehend every detail and nuance in the Torah. He describes this powerful longing as being with him at all times. That means even when he is busy taking care of the affairs of state or family matters, his mind is drawn to the Torah thoughts that he is missing.
