Psalm 19 is one of my favorite psalms. It was written by David. I did a little research and found out that he wrote the psalm when(after) Samuel anointed him.
1 The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
2 Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge.
3 They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them.
4 Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world. In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.
5 It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
6 It rises at one end of the heavens and makes its circuit to the other; nothing is deprived of its warmth.
In verses 1 to 6, David explains the beauty, majesty and glory of God. David looks at God through His creations. He looks up to God.
7 The law of the LORD is perfect, refreshing the soul. The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple.
8 The precepts of the LORD are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the LORD are radiant, giving light to the eyes.
9 The fear of the LORD is pure, enduring forever. The decrees of the LORD are firm, and all of them are righteous.
10 They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the honeycomb.
11 By them your servant is warned; in keeping them there is great reward.
In verses 7 to 11, David looks at God through His Word. He looks AT the word. He is also referring to God’s grace and blessings we can get through His word
12 But who can discern their own errors? Forgive my hidden faults.
13 Keep your servant also from willful sins; may they not rule over me. Then I will be blameless, innocent of great transgression.
14 May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.
In verses 12 to 14, David looks inward. He looks into his own heart. He asks for grace and help to do God’s will according to His word
*Also in accordance to the time he wrote the psalm, I think he was asking for God’s grace so he wouldn’t fail in this great job God had given him
Have A Lovely Day 🙂
