Tehilim 119: Part 02 - Aleph, Pesukim 1-4
Show Notes

This evening (6/9/22), in our Tehilim/Tefilah shiur, we reviewed our approach to Tehilim 119, read the theories of three commentators on what the perek as a whole is about, and then began working on the first four pesukim. The various participants in the shiur ventured their own theories, and we concluded by going over my own theory, which answered all of our questions and explained the flow. Next time we'll aim to understand pesukim 5-8 and attempt to unify the first eight pesukim (בג"ה).
