Wesley's Notes for Psalms 19:1


19:1 The heavens - They are as a legible book, wherein he that runs may read it. The glory - His eternal power and Godhead, his infinite wisdom and goodness. Firmament - Or, the expansion, all the vast space extended from the earth to the highest heavens, with all its goodly furniture.

    The joy of the Lord is my strength and Jesus Christ is my redeemer : He bought me back from sin , hell ,and the grave !!! So therefore I ought to allow the words that I speak and the meditation of my heart to be acceptable in God's sight : Speak as the oracles of God and to meditate in His word day and night !!! I ought to be a DOER of God's word and not just a hearer only.

    proverbs 18:21 death and life are in the power of the tongue and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof---matthew 12:36 but I say unto you that every idle word that men shall speak they shall give account thereof in the day of judgement --- 12:37 for by thy words thou shalt be justified and by thy words thou shalt be condemned --- proverbs 8:8 all the words of MY mouth are in righteousness there is nothing froward or perverse in them---mark 8:35 for whosoever will save his life shall lose it but whosoever shall lose his life for MY sake and the gospels the same shall save it---mark 8:38 whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of ME and of MY words in this adulteress and sinful generation of him also shall the SON OF MAN be ashamed when HE cometh in the glory of HIS FATHER with the holy angels
