Psalm 119:18 - Open my eyes, that I may behold wonderful things from Your law.

“4. Besides this Dogmatical knowledge by which we see round about the compass of Truths revealed in the word; there is a gracious illumination, when men are taught so, as drawn to God, John 6:44, 45. and they do so understand Christs Doctrine, as to apply and make a right use of it; such a knowledge as is called not only sight, but taste, 1 Pet. 2:3. If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious: and a feeling of what we understand, Phil. 1:9. And this I pray, that your love may abound more and more in knowledg, and in all judgment. This sense and experimental knowledge, is that which the Saints seek after.”
