The Hebrew word for ‘time’ is עת or eth and means ‘in its time.’ The ‘right time’ according to the Amplified Version is ‘appointed time’ suggesting there’s an ‘appointed time’ for when God quickly takes action. As I write this, the next ‘appointed time,’ is Hanukkah, the memorial to the cleansing and re-dedication of the Temple in Jerusalem. This holiday is all about a few have victory over the multitude.
Psalm 119 is about loving God’s Torah, His statutes, commands and precepts. It is broken up into sections with strange looking words or letters which are the Hebrew alphabet. In the Hebrew Scriptures, each line of each section starts with a word beginning with this letter. This is called an acrostic poem. Each Hebrew letter also has a word picture associated with it giving greater meaning and symbolism to each line of the specific letter-ed section.
