    Definitions for Psalms 119:79

    Let - To hinder or obstruct.

    Clarke's Commentary on Psalms 119:79

    Let those that fear thee - The truly pious.

    Turn unto me - Seeing thy work upon me, they shall acknowledge me as a brand plucked from the burning.

    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 119:79

    Let those that fear thee turn unto me - Let thy friends be my friends. Let them show me favor, and count me among their companions. If the great and the powerful turn away from me; if they persecute me, and do me wrong; if they cast out my name as evil, and are unwilling to associate with me, yet let thy friends, however poor and humble, regard me with kindness, and reckon me among their number, and I shall be satisfied.

    And those that have known thy testimonies - Thy law. Those who can see and appreciate the beauty of thy commandments. This is the ground of true friendship in religion - the common love of God, of his law, and of his service. This is a permanent ground of affection. All friendship founded on earthly distinctions; all derived from titled birth - from rank - from affluence - from civil, military, or naval renown - from beauty, strength, or nobleness of form - must be temporary; but that which is founded on attachment to God, to his law, and to the Saviour, will abide forever.

    Wesley's Notes on Psalms 119:79

    119:79 Known - Loved and practised them.
