Strengthened 3

I have been sharing some observations on Psalm 138:1 – 3, today’s focus is verse two.  David tells the Lord that he will bow down and give thanks and then the structural marker “for” tells us the reason, “Thy lovingkindness and Thy truth.”  Note the emphasis.  He could have said, “Thy lovingkindness and truth.”  That he repeated the pronoun makes it explicit.
Is it right to separate love and truth.  Why?  Why not?
In my experience we tend to separate the two, Love and Truth.  We even seem to elevate Love over Truth in the name of tolerance or political correctness.  Here David explicitly ties them together.  He seems to be saying that you cannot have one without the other.

He tells us why with the second half of the verse.  We will look at that tomorrow
