Wesley's Notes for Psalms 19:12


19:12 Who - Thy law, O Lord, is holy and just and good. But I fall infinitely short of it. Cleanse - Both by justification, through the blood of thy son; and by sanctification thro' thy holy spirit. Though the first may seem to be principally intended, because he speaks of his past sins. Secret - From the guilt of such sins as were secret either, from others; such as none knows but God and my own conscience: or, from myself; such as I never observed, or did not discern the evil of. Pardon my unknown sins, of which I never repented particularly, as I should have done.

    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.

    Steve,Typing in capital letters is like shouting in speech,not always needed.This space is for your own thoughts,we read the psalm.How has God's word touched you?The general evidence of God is revealed to this lost world in nature,history and conscience.When God quickens sinners,specifically ,then they can see him.Israel today,as God promised,is evidence of his existence,before the other nations.
