His law is sweet…

For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope. Romans

Comments, thoughts and reflections welcome.

Psalm 19

The heavens declare the glory of God;

​​And the firmament shows His handiwork.

 ​​Day unto day utters speech,

​​And night unto night reveals knowledge.

There is no speech nor language

​​Where their voice is not heard.

​​Their line has gone out through all the earth,

​​And their words to the end of the world.

​​In them He has set a tabernacle for the sun,

Which is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,

​​And rejoices like a strong man to run its race.

Its rising is from one end of heaven,

​​And its circuit to the other end;

​​And there is nothing hidden from its heat.

 ​​The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul;

​​The testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple;

The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart;

​​The commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes;

 ​​The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever;

​​The judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.

 ​​More to be desired are they than gold,

​​Yea, than much fine gold;

​​Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

 ​​Moreover by them Your servant is warned,

​​And in keeping them there is great reward.

Who can understand his errors?

​​Cleanse me from secret faults.

 ​​Keep back Your servant also from presumptuous sins;

​​Let them not have dominion over me.

​​Then I shall be blameless,

​​And I shall be innocent of great transgression.

 ​​Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart

​​Be acceptable in Your sight,

​​O LORD, my strength and my Redeemer.

His ways are described as:

Making us wise

Reviving our souls

Giving us joy

Giving us light

They are everlasting, righteous, sure, precious and sweet.  Whether we keep them or not they remain and are true.  We are blessed when we recognize that truth and walk in them.
