Today's reading is the next part of Psalm 119, the long song about the richness and beauty of God's teaching in the holy scripture. It deepens the soul's plea for teaching, recognizing that it has strayed from God's teaching in the past, and suffered for it. However, it has also returned to God's teaching -- which is unchanging and ever-present -- and recognizes that this is a better way to live. "Before I was humbled I went astray, but now I keep your word. You are good and do good, teach me your statutes."
