Blessed are You, O Lord ! Teach me Your statutes. Psalms 119:12 NKJV https://bible.com/bible/114/psa.119.12.NKJV

Praises and honor be to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

Indeed blessed be our Lord ! From the above verse, it is very clear that the author seeks to be taught of the Lord’s statutes. But what are these statutes? If you search the Bible, we could see that God’s statues, commandments, rules, ordinances are mentioned redundantly. A statute could be a commandment or rule for the the people to abide to for their good. It is evident from the below verse from the Book of Exodus, Chapter 15:

‘So he cried out to the Lord , and the Lord showed him a tree. When he cast it into the waters, the waters were made sweet. There He made a statute and an ordinance for them, and there He tested them, and said, “If you diligently heed the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the Lord who heals you.”’

Exodus 15:25-26

So, brethren, seek God to teach all His statutes and obediently keep them for His glory.

Be blessed in Jesus’ matchless name.
