Several weeks ago I taught on learning songs from the Bible. Then I began to teach the “songs” in the context in which they were written. This week I am teaching on Psalm 19, 125, and 122. Please join us as we learn more about God’s word.
This passage is one of the Scripture songs. The law and statutes refer to God’s word. Verse 10 is the chorus.
Revelation in the law (7-11)
7 The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.
8 The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.
9 The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.
10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.
God’s word is perfect, sure, right, pure, clean, true, righteous, and results in a great reward.
The word of God converts the soul, makes the simple wise, rejoices the heart, enlightens the eyes, endures forever, desired more than gold, sweeter than honey, and warns.
My challenge to you is to read, obey, practice, and delight in the word of God, the Bible. You will always be blessed, encouraged, warned, and challenged by it.
