CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
Thy word is true from the beginning - literally, "The head of thy word is truth." Probably the meaning is, that the "principles" of God's word were truth, or were based on truth. The main thing - that on which all relied - was truth, absolute truth. It was not "made" truth by the mere will of God, but it was "founded on" essential truth. Compare Psalm 119:142, note; Psalm 119:144, note. Margin, "The beginning of thy word is true." Its origin is truth; its foundation is truth; its essential nature is truth. See Psalm 19:9.
And every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever - Since any one of thy laws is as certainly founded in truth as any other, it must be that all alike are eternal and unchanging. It must be so with all the essential principles of morality. Mere regulations in regard to rites and ceremonies may be altered, as local and municipal laws among men may be; but essential principles of justice cannot be. A civil corporation - the government of a city or borough - may change its regulations about streets, and culverts, and taxes; but they can never enact laws authorizing murder or theft; nor can they alter the essential nature of honesty and dishonesty; of truth and falsehood.

The law of the LORD is perfect, restoring the soul; The testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.
They are upheld forever and ever; They are performed in truth and uprightness.
Forever, O LORD, Your word is settled in heaven.
Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, And Your law is truth.
Of old I have known from Your testimonies That You have founded them forever. Resh.
Seven times a day I praise You, Because of Your righteous ordinances.
