Also, this Psalm of David is a Hebrew acrostic poem; each verse begins with a successive letter of the Hebrew alphabet. A final verse (25:22) with the Hebrew letter pe is added to the normal 22-letter alphabet. The letters aleph, lamed, pe open the first, middle (25:11), and last lines of the Psalm. Together, they spell aleph, the first letter of the alphabet, from a Hebrew root that means "to learn." What a guide in choosing God's way!
How can we learn and choose God's way? Through Jesus Christ the God who saves (John 6:40, John 8:12, John 10:28; John 10:9)! I love it where the psalmist says, for you are the God who saves me (v5b). That's what the Lord did and still does for me. He saved me, and he keeping on saving me, even when I don't deserve it. He is merciful just like that. He gives us another chance to get it right. And the best part, Jesus wants to save anyone who is willing to put faith in Him. Jesus saves!
