Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Psalms 19:9


19:9 The fear - The law and word of God, because it is both the object and the rule, and the cause of holy fear. Clean - Sincere, not adulterated with any mixture. Constant and unchangeable, the same for substance in all ages. Judgments - God's laws are frequently called his judgments, because they are the declarations of his righteous will, and as it were his judicial sentence by which he expects that men should govern themselves, and by which he will judge them at the last day.

    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.
