Words Of Wisdom
Allen P. Ross, in his tremendous commentary on the book of Psalms comments on verse 115: “Typical of laments in general, the psalmist turns to address the evildoers (e.g., see Ps. 6:8). He says, “Depart from me … that I may keep the commandments of my God.” It is a demand for the wicked to leave him alone so
that he can hold to God’s word in his life. He could maintain such a commitment to the word even if they did not depart; but if they let him alone, however, he would be free to do more in his service of God.” Never forget, “If you lay down with the dogs, you get up with the fleas.”
