Psalm 119:41-48; Christian Liberty and Sola Scriptura

Continuing with the idea of Biblical Christianity bringing liberty, here is a passage from Psalm 119 that combines that idea with the concept of Sola Scriptura, that God's inspired word is the supreme and final rule of faith and practice for Christians.

Psalm 119:
41 Let Your mercies come also to me, O LORD—
Your salvation according to Your word.
42 So shall I have an answer for him who reproaches me,
For I trust in Your word.
43 And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth,
For I have hoped in Your ordinances.
44 So shall I keep Your law continually,
Forever and ever.
45 And I will walk at liberty,
For I seek Your precepts.
46 I will speak of Your testimonies also before kings,
And will not be ashamed.
47 And I will delight myself in Your commandments,
Which I love.
48 My hands also I will lift up to Your commandments,
Which I love,
And I will meditate on Your statutes.
