    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 119:155

    Salvation is far from the wicked - That is,

    (a) in their present course: they are very far from being safe, or from having a prospect of salvation;

    (b) they are constantly going farther and farther off - making their salvation less probable - not going toward heaven, but from it.

    (c) Destruction is very near to them, and they are constantly making it nearer and nearer.

    (d) In their present course it may be said that salvation is far - is infinitely remote - from them, so that they can never come to it.

    (e) If they would be saved, they must change their course altogether, and go "toward" salvation and not from it.

    For they seek not thy statutes - They do not regard thy law; they do not make it a principle to obey thy commandments.
