We definitely don’t know when David wrote Psalm 19. Maybe it was one morning when he had been out all night with his sheep. He saw the sunrise over Moab. David spoke about God in awe. David remembered the stars that he saw at night. God made the heavens and stars. In the morning David saw the sun rise. God made the sun. All that David saw told himself about God. He heard no words, there was no language. David knew that everything was showing and telling him about God. David remembered something else. He remembered the word of God. Called the Bible. Bible tells him about God as well. David did not have the whole Bible. He only had the start of the Old Testament. Which he was able to read about God. This made David very happy. It also made David think. Gods wants a us to think. That is why God gave us a powerful mind. So we can create right with Him. It David him say to himself, “Am I a good or bad man?” David prayed that God would forgive him. David was, perhaps, sitting on the top of a great rock. Spoke to him about God as well! God was like a rock to David. So David called God “My Rock”. He also called God his Redeemer. A Redeemer is someone that pays the price to make a slave free. God has a different name. Here he is the LORD. The name that people use when they decide to follow God. He becomes their LORD. David had scrolls not books. Scroll a roll of parchment or paper for writing or painting on. We learn that The Lord is wonderful. We may feel afraid of The Lord. Christians call this “awe”. It makes us want to tell God The Lord that he is wonderful. We call this “worship” “praising”, “singing” and study. Refrain! Oh! The other book is the Bible. It tells us how to follow God and make him our LORD. The oldest book ever written.

It reads in Psalm 19:1-14, The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun, which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race. His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof. The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward. Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults. Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression. Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.
