In David’s Psalms..what is the meaning in Psalm 119..Aleph..Beth..Gimbel..etc.

As we list items in English both numerically and alphabetically, so did they in ancient Israel. Psalm 119 is divided up into 22 sections, and they are numbered alphabetically from Aleph to Tau. Those words are simply the names of the letters of the Hebrew alphabet.
