Psalms 94:6-10 says, "They slay the widow and the stranger, And murder the fatherless. 7) Yet they say, "The LORD does not see, Nor does the God of Jacob understand." 8) Understand, you senseless among the people; And you fools, when will you be wise? 9) He who planted the ear, shall He not hear? He who formed the eye, shall He not see? 10) He who instructs the nations, shall He not correct, He who teaches man knowledge?"
These verses show how a fool thinks; they live their lives without the knowledge of God. They shove Him out of their thinking, lying to themselves that He doesn't see what they do. The fool says in his heart that there is no God. A wise person has a fear of God.

The longest chapter of the Bible is all about the importance of God’s Word; Psalm 119 is more than double the length of the next longest Psalm. It consists of 22 parts; each part starts with the consecutive letters of the Hebrew Alphabet.
It’s believed that Psalm 119 was written by David; reading it will help one to understand how and why an unknown Sheppard boy became the greatest King Israel had.
Psalms 119:32 says, “I will run the course of Your commandments, For You shall enlarge my heart.” Yes Lord, we ask You to enlarge our heart to know and walk in your ways, and let our eyes stay awake through the night to meditate Your Word (Ps. 119:148).
