    Clarke's Commentary on Psalms 119:72

    The law of thy mouth is better - Who can say this? Who prefers the law of his God, the Christ that bought him, and the heaven to which he hopes to go, when he can live no longer upon earth, to thousands of gold and silver? Yea, how many are there who, like Judas, sell their Savior even for thirty pieces of silver? Hear this, ye lovers of the world and of money!

    As the letter ט teth begins but few words, not forty, in the Hebrew language, there is less variety under this division than under any of the preceding.

    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 119:72

    The law of thy mouth - The law which proceeds out of thy mouth, or which thou hast spoken.

    Is better unto me - The Hebrew is, "Good to me is the law of thy mouth above thousands of gold and silver."

    Than thousands of gold and silver - Than any amount of wealth. It is to me the most valuable possession; that which I prize above all other things. Compare the notes at Psalm 19:10.
