Word Study Wednesday
“Because Your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.” NIV (V3)
“Because Thy loving-kindness is better than life: my lips will praise thee.” (KJV)
I love the meaning of better in verse 3. It is better than better! loving-kindness: favor better: beautiful, best, better, bountiful, cheerful, at ease, fair word, be in favor praise: address in a loud tone Girls, His favor is beautiful, bountiful, cheerful, at ease, a fair word, and is in favor.
Now that is worth celebrating today! Let’s let everyone hear how we feel our full of loving-kindness God!
A fun fact: “Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in Him.” Psalm 34:8 Good is the same in Psalm 34:8 as in Psalm 63:3.
