“Your word is like a lamp that guides my steps, a light that shows the path I should take.”(Psalms 119:105)
Contemporary English Version:
“Your word is a lamp that gives light wherever I walk.”
Common English Bible:
“Your word is a lamp before my feet and a light for my journey.”
Good News Translation:
“Your word is a lamp to guide me and a light for my path.”
Beloved, Happy, Fortunate, Blessed is the man who personally appropriates God's word, habitually and practically uses it as his comfort and counsellor. It is a lamp by night, a light by day, and a delight at all times. He who walks in darkness is sure, sooner or later, to stumble; while he who walks by the light of day, or by the lamp of night, stumbleth not, but keeps his uprightness. The word of God is all you need to lead a successful life, it is the manual you need. Never venture into taking any step without the light-giving word, lest you slip with your feet. If you who make the word of God your guide, and marks its teachings,you will clearly see your path. You will be able to mark the road in which you ought to go, avoid any obstruction that may lie on your path and avoid all those by-paths which can lead you astray. You will not walk in darkness and you will not stumble.
