(152) The more obvious rendering of this verse is, Of old I was instructed out of Thy testimonies, for--not for a brief time, but for ever--Thou didst found them, where for ever expresses indefinite past as well as indefinite future.

Verse 152. - Concerning thy testimonies, I have known of old that thou hast founded them forever; rather, from thy testimonies. The study of God's commandments has long ago convinced the psalmist that they are no passing or temporary enactments, but eternal laws, decreed and laid down forever. The "testimonies" spoken of are, of course, the moral precepts of the Law, not its economical or political enactments.
