Lead me in your truth and teach me: Psalm 25.5

“Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long.”

Psalm 25.5 ESV

In this acrostic psalm, David prays to be delivered from foes and confesses his sins. To arrive at truth, he needs God’s leading and teaching. The first verb “consistently refers to God as he leads the righteous in straight paths” (TWOT).

Truth is not an inner discovery, but an external objective to be reached by seeking God. That process is sought today through the Scriptures. Have you read your Bible today?
