“I understand more than the ancients, because I keep thy precepts.”
King James Version (KJV)

In verse 98 we saw David's wisdom was greater than his enemies, and in verse 99 we saw his understanding surpassed even his teachers. In verse 100 we see even a more remarkable statement when we read that David's understanding was greater than the ancients, or older men. The age of a person may give greater wisdom becasue of experience or observations through time, however they also may grow dull and harden and full of bitterness. I think of the apostle Paul's words to young Timothy full of encouragement because even in his youth he was very wise. David ends verse 100 by saying,because I've kept thy precepts. Understanding without application leads to heresies. Only obedience can be the proving grounds to truth.

As it is written, not by our own actions or rituals are we saved, but by the Grace of God in Jesus Christ, according to the book of Romans. Wisdom is given liberally by God to all who asks of it, according to St. James God is the end of all wisdom, and His children have it. God Bless, in The Lord Jesus Christ 's Name, Amen!

He who goes after godliness is the wisest of them all, including God's and others highest reputes of wisdom, understandings and knowledges.
