The sinfully rebellious find the truth of God's Word to be distasteful;
the selfishly foolish find the truth of God's Word to be dull;
but the spiritually mature find the truth of God's Word to delightful.
So then, in which category are you?
How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity?
And the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?
Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing ye are dull of hearing. For when for the time ye ought to be teachers,
ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God;
and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.
For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.
But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age,
even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
Praise ye the LORD.
Blessed is the man that feareth the LORD, that delighteth greatly in his commandments.
Thy words were found, and I did eat them;
and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart:
for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts.
Psalm 119:14-16, 24, 35, 47-48, 54, 72, 92, 97, 103, 111, 127, 140, 143, 159, 162, 167, 174
I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies, as much as in all riches.
I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways.
I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word.
Thy testimonies also are my delight and my counsellors.
Make me to go in the path of thy commandments; for therein do I delight.
And I will delight myself in thy commandments, which I have loved.
My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments, which I have loved;
and I will meditate in thy statutes.
Thy statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimage.
The law of thy mouth is better unto me than thousands of gold and silver.
Unless thy law had been my delights, I should then have perished in mine affliction.
O how love I thy law! It is my meditation all the day.
How sweet are thy words unto my taste! Yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage for ever: for they are the rejoicing of my heart.
Therefore I love thy commandments above gold; yea, above fine gold.
Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it.
Trouble and anguish have taken hold on me: yet thy commandments are my delights.
Consider how I love thy precepts: quicken me, O LORD, according to thy lovingkindness.
I rejoice at thy word, as one that findeth great spoil.
My soul hath kept thy testimonies; and I love them exceedingly.
I have longed for thy salvation, O LORD; and thy law is my delight.
