Psalms 119:135 Make thy face to shine upon thy servant; and teach me thy statutes.
Here in the seventh verse of the PEH section - the delight in the fear of the Lord verse, this is the seventh and final time in the Psalm the Psalmist asks to be taught the statutes or Huquam. Not unlike going around the walls of Jericho seven times,as a bride does in a Jewish Wedding. So this begs the question - WHAT IS A STATUTE?. The Hebrew for that word is just two letters, two pictures; first - Chet , meaning wedding or union and the second Qaf, meaning holy or close... My Translation would be: God teach me how to love you the way you want to be loved... I share some stories along these lines as well... "If you love me you will keep my commandments."
