Smoke & Wineskins

Today's part of Psalm 119 is verses 81-88. I've been reading this passage and saw that the author is speeking about the persecution that he is in. He says that he has become a 'wineskin in smoke'. If a wineskin is placed in smoke the skin will dry out and crack; then becoming useless.

So the author is saying that in his perscution he has 'cracked'. But in verse 88 he says, "Revive me according to Your lovingkindness, So that I may keep the testamony of Your mouth." What a very vivid image!

I've read this verse many, many times but I had never understood its meaning. Thanks for pointing this out!

Hey LifeSavior guys!
The blog looks great! Nice remodel!
Thanks for having such of an encouraging blog. It's pretty obvious the authors of this blog are sold out to Christ.

God Bless,
Holly

P.S. Thanks for stopping by my blog every now and then, Kade!
