Perhaps the issue being discussed here is much more fundamental than it seems.
We must understand something about the law. To a Jew, the Law is a gift from God. It is their identity. It is not a burden to them. The 'yoke' that Jesus spoke of was the impossible system of extra-biblical commands that Pharisaic Judaism added to the Law.
Please read Psalm 119 again. Certainly the Psalmist did not regard the law as a burden.
"May the Lamb that was slain receive the just reward for His sufferings." A quote by Moravian missionary that sold himself (along with a friend) into slavery to reach those that the slave owner prevented from hearing the gospel.
May I live for Him and not for me.
