What does Psalm 119:127 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Psalms 119:127

Therefore I love thy commandments
Because he was the Lord's servant, as Aben Ezra; or rather because the wicked made void the law. His love was the more inflamed and increased towards it by the contempt it was had in by others; he preferred it

above gold, yea, above fine gold;
or gold of Phez, a place where the best gold was, as was thought: the Septuagint and Vulgate Latin versions render it "the topaz"; and the Syriac and Arabic versions, "precious stones" or "gems"; see ( Psalms 119:72 ) ( Psalms 19:10 ) .
