Definitions for Psalms 119 :140

Clarke's Commentary on Psalms 119 :140

Thy word is very pure - צרופה tseruphah, it is purification. It is not a purified thing, but a thing that purifies. "Now ye are clean," said Christ, "by the word I have spoken unto you." God's word is a fire to purify as well as a hammer to break.

Barnes's Commentary on Psalms 119 :140

Thy word is very pure - Margin, "tried or refined." See the word explained in the notes at Psalm 18:30.

Therefore thy servant loveth it - Therefore I love it. I love it because it is pure, holy, true; not merely because it will save me. Apart from all reference to myself. I love thy truth as truth; I love purity as purity; I love law as law; I love holiness as holiness. This is true religion.

Wesley's Commentary on Psalms 119 :140

119:140 Pure - Without the least mixture of falsehood.
