Discussion for Psalms 19

    Dear Bill; I totally understand where you're coming from. Its like quitting smoking: either you do, emphatically and completely, or you still sneak around from time to time, trying to hide it with washing your hands and mouthwash; but you can't really get rid of the stench. You can try a number of methods, but the bottom line is, YOU HAVE TO WANT TO QUIT! And once you do, your lungs start to heal!

    A majesty of creation fills our sight.Perfect,sure,right,pure,clean and true is the preciousness of his words towards sinners.Sins we try to,or want to hide,are never hid from him.Presumptuous sins are of rebelliousness seeking to dominate us.Keep me back,we should ask,when tempted by the old sinful nature.As we possess forgiveness/grace/eternalife we should strive to live acceptable in his sight.

    Hey Bill; Did you know that the Received Text was actually in all Capital Letters, and no punctuation marks? We also use Large Caps for emphasis, and with respect to the Words of God that emphasis is nothing to find fault in! "If you had known what means, I WILL HAVE MERCY AND NOT SACRIFICE, YOU WOULD NOT HAVE CONDEMNED THE GUILTLESS!" I think that our Brother knows the rules of writing.
