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.

    Beware old sins which resurface in life. Presumptuous sins start small in the thoughts, but do great damage in the spirit. But for the grace and mercy of God, I could never forgive myself, to start anew. Thanks be to God.

    Great psalm, reminds me to fear the Lord and to keep my heart and mouth pure and clean.
  • MockingBird
    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.

    God's desire for Human for our everyday sanctification. It is Highly Awesome
