Wesley's Notes for Psalms 19:14


19:14 Let - Having prayed that God would keep him from sinful actions, he now prays that God would govern, and sanctify his words and thoughts: and this was necessary to preserve him from presumptuous sins, which have their first rise in the thoughts. Redeemer - This expression seems to be added emphatically, and with special respect to Christ, to whom alone this word Goel can properly belong.

    Verse 1 shows how the heavens proclaim God's glory. Even though the heavens do not literally speak, the precision, beauty, and power in the celestial heavens points to a glorious Creator. The heavens speak to us about the glory of their creator, Jehovah God.
  • Rodion Ponomariev
    Chapter 19:10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
  • Jerri
    If the heavens declare the glory of God, we as believers must be real and tell somebody we know about Jesus. The clouds applaud the works of God's hands and I'm glad that He included me in those works. Tell somebody, people don't realize this. Blessings to you all today. Jerri
