This is the second of three Torah Psalms (Psalms 1 & 119 are the others). In it, King David extols the beauties of God’s old covenant (the law) – it’s speaks a word that’s more magnificent than that of creation! By keeping the old covenant – it’s commandments, precepts, statutes, etc. – David expects to be declared innocent of all sin, even secret sins (ESV translation), and to receive a reward. David expresses “typological righteousness” (see its context: Ps. 18:20-24), by which he foreshadows our Lord Jesus Christ, who perfectly kept God’s law on our behalf.
