Psalm 119:52

The Judgments Of Old
Ronnie W. Wolfe

The judgments about which this psalmist is speaking is nothing more than the very word of God, which preceded the creation of the world. The Bible itself tells us in Psalms 119:89 For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.

The word of God came to us in small increments, but it was settled (established) in heaven before the world was ever created, and  Matthew 24:35 tells us that Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

When we bring to mind the word of God, we are remembering God's "judgments of old." We are blessed today to have the whole of God's revelation to us through his word, the Bible.

Perhaps this is the pearl of great price mentioned in Matthew 13:46. It does at least have great value. I told the people at church Sunday evening that there is no other book like the Bible, and that means that it should take priority over any other book in the world. We should all heed this verse and remember the judgments of old and find comfort in them.
