    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 119:127

    Therefore I love thy commandments ... - The more people break them Psalm 119:126, the more I see their value; the more precious they are to me. The fact that they make thy law void, and that evil consequences result from their conduct, only impresses my mind the more with a sense of the value of the law, and makes my heart cling to it the more. There is almost nothing that will so impress upon our minds the importance of law as the sight of the effects which follow when it is disregarded.

    Above gold ... - See the notes at Psalm 119:72. Compare Psalm 19:10.

    Wesley's Notes on Psalms 119:127
