I was having a conversation with an orthodox Jew over on Code Golf SE on whether Christians still need to follow the Law or not. After bringing up a few verses on the subject, he brought up Psalm 119:160:

All your words are true; all your righteous laws are eternal.

I pointed out this has a different wording in different versions, e.g. the KJV:

Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.

He pointed out that the Hebrew word here most likely means "law", and that the Torah has been referenced with such a word. How does this not conflict with the various passages in the New Testament, for example Hebrews 7:18-19 or Luke 16:16?
