Mr. Trump and the Emoluments Clause (iow: get over it folks)

constitution-and-bill-of-rights

 

Hi;

I have been watching the news feeds lately. (ya’ll hate when I do that). And have noticed the latest trend to try to put the President down. (hey folks he JUST got in, let him do something first). They are claiming the emoluments clause prevents him from having any foreign investment. They have gone so far as to institute a lawsuit that will get thrown out fast.

Sorry folks, Thanks to Mr Obama, I had started to look at and refer back to the constitution(yes you can do that too) for any questions. From the  constitution under the CONGRESS – Article 1 section 9 –

No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the consent of the Congress, accept of any present Emolument, office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign state.

Now read that carefully and remember what section this is under.

This clause ONLY pertains to those that are UNDER the employ of CONGRESS.

As the President is not under the employ of congress, but rather an equal partner, This clause does not pertain to him. And the way it is written it also exempts congress too. It only pertains to congressional employees.

As the President has said, he only divested to get away from the look of impropriety. This is a non issue. Any Lawsuits or complaints about it are frivolous, and a waste of time.

So next time you see an article about something that may make you mad in the news, please look up the laws that they are saying they violated, to see if they actually did something wrong. The days of safe spaces because you got your feelings hurt are over. We are now onto the days of, suck it up, Nothing unlawfull here.

I Am Tired of This

Hi All;

 

I am REALLY tired of the games that are going on here. The “tolerant” left is more like the radical left at this point. They have proven that they are so childish. I mean when they threaten the life of a blind guy that just wants to sing? This is a big disappointment. Here I thought they were supposed to be the tolerant, gentle party? They have forced Andrea Boccelli

andrea boccelli

to cancel his plans to sing at Mr Trumps inauguration, by issuing death threats that his managers are taking seriously. They have tried this on Toby Keith and a bunch of other artists

.

It’s time for the left to be what they say they are, tolerant, sweet, giving people. They appear to be doing everything they can to get in the way of a peaceful transition of power. Have you read some of the news stories going around? they plan to interrupt the inauguration in many ways. They are throwing a party to distract from reality.

Folks, when Mr Obama was elected the right did not try to interrupt everything. we tried thru facts. (ok, so some of those facts we were fed may or may not be right). We didn’t riot and loot. But from what I’ve heard, that is all planned.

Please, The election is over. Let the man at least take the oath of office and show us what he is going to do before you bombard him. If he does something wrong then we all should jump him. But for now, as they said back in the 60’s, Let’s give peace a chance.

new Executive orders 12 sep 17

Boy, Oh Boy. Mr Obama is really going for broke here. 8 days left and he dumped a LOT of executive orders. These are things he coulda done before, but to make his name , here he goes.

heres the titles of some of em:

Presidential Proclamation — Boundary Enlargement of the California Coastal National Monument

Presidential Proclamations — Establishment of the Reconstruction Era National Monument

Presidential Proclamations — Establishment of the Freedom Riders National Monument

Presidential Proclamations — Establishment of the Birmingham Civil Rights National Monument

Presidential Memorandum — Promoting Diversity and Inclusion in Our National Parks, National Forests, and Other Public Lands and Waters

Presidential Proclamation — Boundary Enlargement of the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument (note: takes over a ranch among other things)

Executive Order — Exclusions from the Federal Labor-Management Relations Program (takes DOD out from under the guise of the federal labor management restrictions)

Executive Order — Designating the World Organisation for Animal Health as a Public International Organization Entitled to Enjoy Certain Privileges, Exemptions, and Immunities (a feel good thing I think, giving into the animal rights organization).

Executive Order — Amending Executive Order 11016 to Update Eligibility Criteria for Award of the Purple Heart  (makes the coast guard eligible for the purple heart when not under the wings of the Navy)

This is nothing more than a Presidential dump of feel good things to make him a legacy. Mr Trump can undo all of these.

Politicians calling for war?

 

140504-obama-correspondents-laugh-8a_29ce0d0e4fbd43b3439320560cbba42fdonald-trump

 

 

Is this how it’s going to go? First Mr Obama starts by getting the letters to declare that Russia hacked the election. (not sure myself, still think it was a leak not a hack).  While there has been zero evidence that the polls were hacked by anyone other than the Dems. They are claiming that the Russians hacked the DNC and released the emails to wikileaks to influence the elections. (never mind that no one has claimed that the data in those emails was false.)

Now we have (RHINO) Senator McCaine calling it an act of war. I read a few possibly false sources yesterday state that Mr Obama has sent troops to the Russian boarder. and then we have the President sanctioning Russia for the ?hacks?.  And add in the fact that Mr Trump was supposed to get a security briefing on Monday or Tuesday that was put off till Friday? (they couldn’t get the lies together well enough?)

And in the ?house? committee  today I heard one of the big wigs from the letters state that he was absolutely sure it was Russia, and that it rises to the level of espionage.

And we have Shep asking if Mr Trump either doesn’t believe the letters (he really doesn’t at this point) or is thanking the Russians.

Put it all together along with some conspiracy theorist saying that Mr Obama will be declaring martial law to avoid giving Mr Trump the White House, and what do you get?

I’m not sure but watch the next 2 weeks to see if either war is declared or they try their damndest to tie Mr Trump’s hands and make him unable to execute the office the way he should and wants.

All You preppers, make sure you got your food supply and water and ammo ready cause unless something happens , something is going to happen.

Unconstitutional act by the President Please spread

I was looking thru the presidential actions like I usually do about 1ce a week and JUST found that he has just UNCONSTITUTIONALLY created a law. (the President is NOT allowed to make law only congress is). In his zeal to try to look good, He has made an Executive Order against cyber terrorism. It is time to put this man out. Here is the link for the EO –

https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2016/12/29/executive-order-taking-additional-steps-address-national-emergency

He is making it look like there is a national emergency to do this. This can not be allowed (his creating law). I demand congress step in and take action.

The Recent Israeli Crisis

Good Day folks;

In an attempt to try to figure out the recent problems for Israel, I found some maps that may help show some of the problems.

israel_hist_1973

As you can see by the above maps they have had a lot of trouble with the borders.  Under Kings David and Solomon they occupied a LOT of territory.  then the borders changed once again. THEN came the BRITISH, who CREATED the Palistinian territory.  Then the U.N. tried to give some land back to Israel. then came the six day war which created the current borders.  Israel gave up the the south after some diplomacy to create peace.  and this is whats left since 1967.

In my opinion the people to blame are actually the Brits. They created the current mess that is call the border. Do not forget that it is the Arab worlds mission to rid the earth of Israel. This they have said on numerous occasions. The current US administration is in league with Arabs so we can get oil? That’s beyond my pay grade.

Now as to the current problem of Israel building, I still haven’t found out exactly WHERE, so I can’t say if they are at fault. as the treaty specifies that Israel get x amount of Jeruselum. If they are going past that border? I don’t know. But I do know that the Arab world has tried to take Jeruselum from Israel.

The Kerry diatribe the other day smacks of trying to make something that isn’t so, so.

I will give it to the current administration this. They have gotten me to think of stuff I normally wouldn’t have. Like the Constitution and Israel and………….. . Not a real good way to get a person to think and look at history. (and the left wonders why they lost so bad? They did stuff so outrageous that it made the common man actually think.)

Lesson for the day

 

Remember God does not need us to be in a building to talk to him.

from ACTS

48 Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet,

49 Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool: what house will ye build me? saith the Lord: or what is the place of my rest?

50 Hath not my hand made all these things?

51 Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye.

52 Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted? and they have slain them which shewed before of the coming of the Just One; of whom ye have been now the betrayers and murderers:

53 Who have received the law by the disposition of angels, and have not kept it.

54 When they heard these things, they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed on him with their teeth.

55 But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God,

56 And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.

57 Then they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran upon him with one accord,

58 And cast him out of the city, and stoned him: and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man’s feet, whose name was Saul.

59 And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.

60 And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep.

Merry CHRISTS mass , the word of luke on this glorious day

Luke 2King James Version (KJV)

And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.

(And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)

And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)

To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.

And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.

16 And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.

17 And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.

18 And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.

19 But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.

20 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them

verse for the day 22 dec 16 (4th thur in Advent

Psalm 145King James Version (KJV)

145 I will extol thee, my God, O king; and I will bless thy name for ever and ever.

Every day will I bless thee; and I will praise thy name for ever and ever.

Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.

One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts.

I will speak of the glorious honour of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works.

And men shall speak of the might of thy terrible acts: and I will declare thy greatness.

They shall abundantly utter the memory of thy great goodness, and shall sing of thy righteousness.

The Lord is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy.

The Lord is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.

10 All thy works shall praise thee, O Lord; and thy saints shall bless thee.

11 They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom, and talk of thy power;

12 To make known to the sons of men his mighty acts, and the glorious majesty of his kingdom.

13 Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and thy dominion endureth throughout all generations.

14 The Lord upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all those that be bowed down.

15 The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou givest them their meat in due season.

16 Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.

17 The Lord is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works.

18 The Lord is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth.

19 He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them.

20 The Lord preserveth all them that love him: but all the wicked will he destroy.

21 My mouth shall speak the praise of the Lord: and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever.

verse for the day 21 Dec 16

139 O lord, thou hast searched me, and known me.

Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off.

Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.

For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O Lord, thou knowest it altogether.

Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me.

Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.

Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?

If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.

If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;

10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.

11 If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me.

12 Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.

13 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb.

14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

15 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.

16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.

17 How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!

18 If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.

19 Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, ye bloody men.

20 For they speak against thee wickedly, and thine enemies take thy name in vain.

21 Do not I hate them, O Lord, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee?

22 I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies.

23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:

24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

Hi all;

been thinking about this a bit. Lets work our way thru the 1st.

CONGRESS – not the states , not the people, not the judiciary, not the President

SHALL MAKE NO LAW -shall have no bill legislature or rulings

RESPECTING AN ESTABLISHMENT OF RELIGION,

OR PROHIBITING THE FREE EXCERSIZE THEREOF;

This is NOT the founders wanting separation of church and state, It is the fact that they wanted no national religion as they had in England with the church running everything. This is saying if you want to pray to god, you are free to do so in whatever manner you want. This is NOT saying you are not allowed to pray in the White House or the rotunda. THE only thing it says is that CONGRESS is not allowed to make a law. If the states want to include god in their life, they are free to. (anything not expressively prohibited in the constitution is left to the states and the people).

Since the only prohibition on this is to CONGRESS, that would leave it to the several states and most importantly THE PEOPLE.

OR ABRIDGING THE FREEDOM OF SPEECH;

The founders most definitely wanted us to be able to tell what we think to whomever would listen, with out being told what NOT to say (have at it, you PC crowd).

OR OF THE PRESS;

They wanted the press to be able to write about the government with out fear. It did NOT qualify whom was to be deemed “the press”. My little blog here is an example of the new “press”. Have we become such lame brains that we cannot tell what is fake and what is real? knowing that the press will try to assuage us in one direction or another? That read and verify is no longer a thing? This new push for getting rid of “fake newsites” is in direct opposition to this amendment. What are they going to do next , pull the “National Enquirer” off the store shelves now? Does this not speak of government control of information? The way communist and totalitarian governments work?

OR OF THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO PEACEABLY ASSEMBLE, AND TO PETITION THE GOVERNMENT FOR REDRESS

The emphasis on peaceably is mine. RIOTS do not count. Do you remember where the term “get off your soapbox” came from? It’s because people used to stand on soap boxes to be recognized when they wanted to speak in public.

These are just some of my thoughts on this.  May post more later as I think about it.

Glenn

DNC Hacking

Another thought. With all the emphasis on WHO hacked the #DNC, Everyone is distracted from WHAT was released. The fact that there was something to release is what is being covered up in what maybe a campaign to keep those that wrote it from jail? Yes some people MAY have changed their minds on who to vote for based on the released emails. But for the majority of those that voted for Mr Trump it was no factor.

Remember this, IF it wasn’t written in the first place there would have been nothing to release.

Shall we turn this back around and put the focus back on WHAT was released, rather than WHO hacked them?

Did the Russians hack the dnc, was it the Obama regieme, was it an insider leak as Mr Assange says, or was it someone else? Right now I am not convinced one way or the other. Remember that the CIA is most known for topeling governments and releasing fake data.

Gotta love the drama of politics.

Could this be a last ditch attempt By MS Clinton to stay out of jail by diverting attention from what she wrote and did to some unnamed source that the wapo said they had in their article that started this round? I don’t know. (the wapo? really? does anyone actually believe that rag more than say the national enquirer?)

oh well. It’s almost time to start my day and I have no time to continue and I’m sure you don’t have much time to read further as you have to start your day.

First Lesson for the 3rd Sunday in Advent

From Isaiah, the first lesson for the 3rd Sunday in Advent

1In that day shall this song be sung in the land of Judah; We have a strong city; salvation will God appoint for walls and bulwarks.

2Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation which keepeth the truth may enter 3Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

4Trust ye in the Lord for ever: for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength:

5For he bringeth down them that dwell on high; the lofty city, he layeth it low; he layeth it low, even to the ground; he bringeth it even to the dust.

6The foot shall tread it down, even the feet of the poor, and the steps of the needy.
7The way of the just is uprightness: thou, most upright, dost weigh the path of the just.
8Yea, in the way of thy judgments, O Lord, have we waited for thee; the desire of our soul is to thy name, and to the remembrance of thee.
9With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.
10Let favour be shewed to the wicked, yet will he not learn righteousness: in the land of uprightness will he deal unjustly, and will not behold the majesty of the Lord.
11 Lord, when thy hand is lifted up, they will not see: but they shall see, and be ashamed for their envy at the people; yea, the fire of thine enemies shall devour them.

“Fake News”

As I sit here, I am seeing calls by a disgruntled Ms. Clinton for the government to end fake news sites. Now I realize her and most of the left are besides themselves trying to figure out a way to blame someone or something for her loss, But Ms. Clinton this just goes to prove to me and a lot of others why it was a good thing you lost. As someone that has taken the oath, I must point out that you would be going against the US Constitution.

Let me show you how. In your call for getting rid of “fake” new sites you are now going against the First Amendment of the US Constitution. You see the framers thought something like this would be called for, and made it protected. Back in the day they were censored a lot in what they wrote in public by the crown. So they wrote in these protections for the American people. These protections being freedom of speech and freedom of the press and freedom of religion among others.

The 1st amendment-
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances

So there you have the primary rule to follow. By your call to close “fake” news sites you are calling for government censorship. these sites are protected under freedom of the press. And even if you wont say they are part of the press, then they are covered under freedom of speech. Yes you may not like what they say, they may not be telling the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, but they are still protected. If you are to start shutting down sites for what you call fake news, what is to stop you from shutting down any persons free speech. there by creating a nation of state sponsored news only?

As an average citizen I am smart enough to know to verify what I read and discount all the BS. If by your call you are saying that Americans are not smart enough to know fake news from real, then you should look further. There are plenty of us that know not to believe everything we read. If not then people need to be taught that lesson.

As I said, I took an oath, and with that oath comes rights and responsibilities. One of those is to guard those that I disagree with vehemently, their right to say that which I in all good conscience would disagree with as much temper. But I do have the right, nay the responsibility and duty to point out to you that which I find wrong and why. If after I have said my peace and you still disagree then all is good.

I would like to close out by asking that EVERYONE read the constitution. And that everyone please engage their brain and think about things. Then decide what it is that you believe to be fake and true. As always verify then believe.

Someone once said – say something often enough and with such force and they will believe that which is a lie to be true.

daily verse 2nd Wednesday after Advent

Revelation 13King James Version (KJV)

13 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.
10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

daily verse Monday 2nd sunday after advent

6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
8 The Lord sent a word into Jacob, and it hath lighted upon Israel.
9 And all the people shall know, even Ephraim and the inhabitant of Samaria, that say in the pride and stoutness of heart,
10 The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycomores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars.
11 Therefore the LORD shall set up the adversaries of Rezin against him, and join his enemies together;
12 The Syrians before, and the Philistines behind; and they shall devour Israel with open mouth. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
13 For the people turneth not unto him that smiteth them, neither do they seek the LORD of hosts.
14 Therefore the LORD will cut off from Israel head and tail, branch and rush, in one day.
15 The ancient and honourable, he is the head; and the prophet that teacheth lies, he is the tail.
16 For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.
17 Therefore the Lord shall have no joy in their young men, neither shall have mercy on their fatherless and widows: for every one is an hypocrite and an evildoer, and every mouth speaketh folly. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

A Question

constitution-and-bill-of-rights

I have A question.

For all you lawyers and constitutionalists. I recently saw on the news how Congress passed a bill that said, if your don’t follow our rules you don’t get any money, and if you continue to not follow them then you owe us back the money we gave you. I understand that this is the best way they can force states to follow Federal laws, And was designed to make the states and towns follow Federal immigration law.

My question is, can the states fight this law on only certain points? Here is my main point, that the constitution gives certain powers to the federal government, and the rest is reserved to the states and the people. EX: the constitution has freedom of speech, guns, religion, immigration in it, BUT it does not have anything about medicines and drugs.

So the question is, can the federal government control say, Pot, when the state makes a law for or against it? Or say roads and or cars? Or say marriage. All these things are not in the constitution or bill of rights. Doesn’t the fact that the constitution actually says that anything NOT in the constitution is for the states and the people? Your thoughts.

Glenn

verse for sunday 4 dec 16 (2nd sunday in advent)

Psalm 119
89 For ever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven.

90 Thy faithfulness is unto all generations: thou hast established the earth, and it abideth.

91 They continue this day according to thine ordinances: for all are thy servants.

92 Unless thy law had been my delights, I should then have perished in mine affliction.

93 I will never forget thy precepts: for with them thou hast quickened me.

94 I am thine, save me: for I have sought thy precepts.

95 The wicked have waited for me to destroy me: but I will consider thy testimonies.

96 I have seen an end of all perfection: but thy commandment is exceeding broad.

97 O how love I thy law! it is my meditation all the day.

98 Thou through thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they are ever with me.

99 I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies are my meditation.

100 I understand more than the ancients, because I keep thy precepts.

101 I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep thy word.

102 I have not departed from thy judgments: for thou hast taught me.

103 How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!

104 Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.

105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

106 I have sworn, and I will perform it, that I will keep thy righteous judgments.
