I Memorized Psalm 119:1-24 So Far!

….of course you’ll find plenty of mistakes!

I have purposed in my heart to start scripture memorization again. I would like for you to join me. In the past I did Psalms 19, 23, 27, and 91. They are all still hidden in my heart to this day. I got distracted with the busyness of life and I missed my first love. Now I am going to give myself to this noble discipline again. What a better place to start than Psalm 119? After all, this psalm talks a lot about the word of Yahweh! Yes, I’ll start with the longest chapter in the Scripture. This is a monumental undertaking, nonetheless by God’s grace I’ll do it.

I’ll write down from my memory what I have memorized so far. This is a three day work. So far I have memorized verses 1 to 24 since Thursday. Let me see what I got so far. Before I publish, I’ll check all mistakes and correct them in bold and strikethrough.
