Salmos 119:131 Meaning and Commentary

Psalms 119:131

I opened my mouth, and panted
As a person out of breath does, through walking or running; he stops and pants, and opens his mouth, to draw in air to his relief: or as hungry and thirsty persons pant for food and drink, and open their mouths to receive it, before it can well be brought to them. So the psalmist panted after God, and communion with him; desired the sincere milk of the word; longed for the breasts of ordinances, and even fainted for the courts of the Lord, ( Psalms 42:1 ) ( 84:2 ) ;

for I longed for thy commandments;
for an opportunity of waiting upon God in the way of his duty; to hear his word, and attend his worship.

129 PE. Maravillosos son tus testimonios: Por tanto los ha guardado mi alma.
130 El principio de tus palabras alumbra; Hace entender á los simples.
131 Mi boca abrí y suspiré; Porque deseaba tus mandamientos.
132 Mírame, y ten misericordia de mí, Como acostumbras con los que aman tu nombre.
133 Ordena mis pasos con tu palabra; Y ninguna iniquidad se enseñoree de mí.
