The Heth section of Ps 119, (pron: "Chet") is the 8th letter of the 22 letter Hebrew alpabet. the form is like an 'n' ... symbolized the tent wall, the separation between inside and out, to be divided, in half.   It's sound is "HH"  -- the breath of life.  8 is the number of Christ.

Observe that the Lords name "Yaweh"  -- can be breathed Ya (in) weh (out.)  The unspeakable name could be breathed.  Chewy thought.

The vocalization "Yahweh" could theoretically be a hif'il (causative) verb inflection of root HWH, with a meaning something like "he who causes to exist" or "who gives life" (the root idea of the word perhaps being "to breathe", and hence, "to live").[29] As a qal (basic stem) verb inflection, it could mean "he who is, who exists".[28]

Ps 119:57 "You are my portion, O Lord; I have promised to obey your words.  I have sought your face with all my heart; be gracious to me according to your promise."

We are alone in our relations with God.  Jesus is a relationship, not a religion.  Yet, we have fellowship and enjoy sharing the Word with other believers, we must always remember our allegiance is to the Lord.   Jesus is the source, our creator, our life, our salvation.  What else do I need to know?  Well, its fun to understand that with every breath take: I name my God, my creator ... inhale & exhale... life!  

Ps 119:58-59 "I have considered my ways and have turned my steps to your statutes.  I will hasten and not delay to obey your commands."
