    Clarke's Commentary on Psalms 119:138

    Thy testimonies - Every thing that proceeds from thee partakes of the perfections of thy nature.

    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 119:138

    Thy testimonies that thou hast commanded - Thy law, considered as a testimony as to what is right and best.

    Are righteous and very faithful - Margin, as in Hebrew, "righteousness and faithfulness." They are "so" righteous, and so deserving of confidence - so certain to be accomplished, and so worthy to be trusted in - that they may be spoken of as "righteousness" and "fidelity" of the most perfect kind; the very essence of that which is right.
