An Exposition of Psalm 19, Part Two

Psalms 19:7-14  (ID: 3240)

God's Word is essential for the Christian Life from beginning to end. Alistair Begg teaches that the Word of God gives life to dead souls, provides wisdom appropriate to our weakness, and spurs us on to purity. In it, we discover warnings to be heeded and promises to be trusted as we look to Jesus, who keeps us secure in His grace and enables our obedience.


7The law of the Lord is perfect,3

reviving the soul;

the testimony of the Lord is sure,

making wise the simple;

8the precepts of the Lord are right,

rejoicing the heart;

the commandment of the Lord is pure,

enlightening the eyes;

9the fear of the Lord is clean,

enduring forever;

the rules4 of the Lord are true,

and righteous altogether.

10More to be desired are they than gold,

even much fine gold;

sweeter also than honey

and drippings of the honeycomb.

11Moreover, by them is your servant warned;

in keeping them there is great reward.

12Who can discern his errors?

Declare me innocent from hidden faults.

13Keep back your servant also from presumptuous sins;

let them not have dominion over me!

Then I shall be blameless,

and innocent of great transgression.

14Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart

be acceptable in your sight,

O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.
