What can Psalm 119 teach us about afflictions and the Word?

119:67 Before I was afflicted I used to stray off, 98 

but now I keep your instructions. 99 

119:68 You are good and you do good.

Teach me your statutes!

119:69 Arrogant people smear my reputation with lies, 100 

but I observe your precepts with all my heart.

119:70 Their hearts are calloused, 101 

but I find delight in your law.

119:71 It was good for me to suffer,

so that I might learn your statutes.
