This is an incredibly rich book, covering nuggets of truth in each and every verse in Psalm 119 (there is a different numbering system in Eastern theology, thus the title reference to Ps. 118). It was not easy reading, but it was worth the nuggets of gold to be found by taking it slowly and digesting it, literally, one verse at a time.
