Your testimonies are my delight; they are my counselors.

Psalm 119:24

His delight and his counsellors, that is, his delight because his counsellors; his counsellors, and therefore his delight. We know how delightful it is to any to have the advantage of good counsel, according to the perplexities and distractions in which they may be. “Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart: so doth the sweetness of a man’s friend by hearty counsel, “says Solomon, Proverbs 27:9. Now this is the sweetness of Divine communion, and of meditation on God and his word; it employs a man with seasonable counsel, which is a very great refreshment to us. T. Horton
