96 I realize that everything has its limits,
but your commands are beyond full comprehension.[a]

מ (Mem)

97 O how I love your law!
All day long I meditate on it.
98 Your commandments[b] make me wiser than my enemies,
for I am always aware of them.

  1. Psalm 119:96 tn Heb “to every perfection I have seen an end, your command is very wide.” God’s law is beyond full comprehension, which is why the psalmist continually studies it (vv. 95, 97).
  2. Psalm 119:98 tn The plural form needs to be revocalized as a singular in order to agree with the preceding singular verb and the singular pronoun in the next line. The Lord’s “command” refers here to the law (see Ps 19:8).
