Psalm 19

“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun, Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race. His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof. 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 for ever: 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 is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward. Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults. Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression. Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.” Psalms 19:1-14


  • Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.” That is a strong challenge to me. Thank you for it.

  • Hmmm, one of my favorite Psalms! In fact, I memorized it not too long ago, and read it just the other day! It's always such a challenge to me to treasure the word of God like I should!

    Beautiful photo! Looks strangely familiar.....:-)

  • Beautiful, powerful scripture. (Though isn't the entirety of God's Word powerful?!)

  • Yes, Monica, it is a challenge to each one of us to keep our thoughts and words Christ-centered...

    Andrea, we memorized this Psalm a LONG time ago as a family, and I am afraid that I have lost most of it... :-(

    I agree, Bethany, it is just as Jesus said in John 6:63b “...the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.” I think that goes for the whole Bible!

    God bless you all!!!
