9 How shall a young man cleanse his ways? By taking heed to and watching for your word.1 [One does not watch for scriptures, but one does listen and watch for the word of the Lord within your heart to speak and/or provide a vision with crystal-clear understanding. Reading scriptures does not cleanse you; but when you sit in humble silence and wait for the Lord, listening and watching for His word, each word you hear cleanses you a little more because each word that He speaks to you imparts the life of God to you as it is engrafted into your heart.]
11 I have retained your word [spoken commands] in my heart, that I might not sin against you.
17 Deal bountifully with your servant, that I may live, and keep your word [heard within my heart].
25 My soul cleaves to the dust: quicken you me according to your word [heard within my heart].
38 Establish your word to your servant, who is devoted to your fear.
41 Let your mercies come also to me, O LORD, even your salvation, according to your word [heard within my heart].
42 So shall I have enough to answer him who reproaches me for I trust in your word.
50 This is my comfort in my affliction for your word has given me life.
58 I entreated your favor with my whole heart; be merciful to me according to your word.
66 Teach me good judgment and knowledge for I have believed your commandments.
67 Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now have I kept your word.
74 They who fear you will be glad when they see me because I have hoped in your word.
76 Let, I pray you, your merciful kindness be for my comfort, according to your word to your servant.
81 My soul faints for your salvation, but I hope in your word.
82 My eyes fail for your word, saying, "When will you comfort me?" [David's eyes failed as he was waiting and watching for the word. One does not watch for scriptures, but one does listen and watch for the word of the Lord within your heart to speak and/or provide a vision with crystal-clear understanding. The word of the Lord can come in a vision: the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision, saying, "Do not fear Abram, I am you shield, and you exceedinly great reward." Gen 15:1]
101 I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep your word [heard from within].
105 Your word [heard from within] is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path.4
107 I am greatly afflicted; bring me to Life, O LORD, according to your word.
114 You are my hiding place and my shield; I hope in your word [heard from within].
116 Uphold me according to your word, that I may live; and let me not be ashamed of my hope.
133 Order my steps by your word [commands to me]; and do not let any iniquity to have dominion over me.
140 Your word is very pure; therefore your servant loves it.
147 I prevented the dawning of the morning, and cried: "I hoped in your word."
148 My eyes are awake in the night watches, that I might meditate in your word.
154 Plead my cause, and deliver me; bring me to Life according to your word.
158 I beheld the transgressors, and was grieved because they did not keep your word.
160 Your word was true from the beginning, and everyone of your righteous judgments endures forever.
162 I rejoice at your word, as one that finds great spoil.
169 Let my cry come near before you, O LORD; give me understanding according to your word.
170 Let my supplication come before you; deliver me according to your word.
172 My tongue shall speak of your word for all your commandments are righteousness.
4 Your word [heard from within] is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path. When a man has been sufficiently cleansed to receive his anointing, a man hears and sees instructions from God for what noble thing to do or say next. Such a man walks by the light of God, which shows and instructs him what to say and do. The light within a man is the light of the word, who is Christ, the word of God. Even Jesus did not judge, speak, or act without the Spirit's specific prompting. Jesus said:
David also said in verse 133: Order my steps by your word, [the word within], heard in the heart. But the word is very near to you, in your mouth, and in your heart, so that you may obey it. Deu 30:14].
So many ignorant false prophets in Christendom think the word is the Bible; yet, Jesus Christ is the word of God: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was god. John 1:1. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood; and his name is called The Word of God. And he has on his garment and on his thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. Rev 19:13,167.
