Psalm 119:50 This is my comfort in my affliction: for thy word hath quickened me. [King James Version]

I assume you are having problems with the word "quickened" in the KJV.  It means "to make alive".  Here is the same verse in the New King James Version:

Psalm 119:50 This is my comfort in my affliction, For Your word has given me life. [NKJV]

Paul says something similar in Romans:

Romans 15:4 For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope. [NKJV]

I hope you have found this helpful.

God bless,
