Psalm 119:137-144; Tsadhe and God’s ways higher than ours

In these verses the Psalmist reminds us that because God’s words to us and judgements regarding us are centered in His righteousness and faithfulness, we can be assured that they are pure and true.  When God’s precepts run counter to our reasoning, these verses give us reassurance that we can trust God’s precepts.  And it is this understanding, according to verse 144, that gives life.
