Chapter Summary

Elements of lament psalms are also easily identified in Psalm (Ps) 119, but it is not a lament psalm. Why does the author use the traditional religious language? This chapter argues that it contributes to the authors portrayal of the speaker as an exemplary Torah student, and that the speaker models the message. What does it mean to claim that the speaker models the message? The authors characterization of the speaker is complex and multifaceted. This complexity could not be achieved in a short poem or in a brief, static portrait. Instead the author portrays the speaker in a variety of situations and as a rounded character who exhibits a variety of emotions.
