“Stablish thy word unto thy servant, who is devoted to thy fear.”
King James Version (KJV)

This a unique request. In verse 89 of this chapter David makes the statement, For ever, O LORD, your word is settled in heaven. The word stablish has a number of meanings for us to consider. Accomplish, be clearer, make good or sure, are just a few. I believe David was seeking for a deeper trust in God, not that God 's word itself was incomplete. Knowing God more intimately has been his cry all through the Psalms and the second part for this verse brings clarity to this point, "who is devoted to thy fear ". David had a deep reverence of God, that is what he lived for. This should be a pattern in our lives. Those who know God will not remain where they are at in relationship to God but will want to draw closer and closer into that inter circle of the Lord 's dearest. In the New Testament it was Peter, James and John. May we out of and unrestrained devotion find our names there also.
