Psalms 119:135 Meaning and Commentary

Psalms 119:135

Make thy face to shine upon thy servant
That is, lift up the light of thy countenance on me; favour me with thy gracious presence, and communion with thyself; manifest thyself unto me, and shed abroad thy love in my heart; cause the sun of righteousness to arise upon me, and commune with me, from above thy mercy seat; restore to me the joys of thy salvation, and let me have the comforts of thy good Spirit: this prayer is a part of the blessing of the high priest, ( Numbers 6:25 ) ;

and teach me thy statutes;
the more communion a man has with God, the more desirous he is of learning and doing his will. This is a frequent petition; see ( Psalms 119:124 ) .
