1. Psalm 19:7 “The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul…”
The Law of God is powerful to convict and challenge a person’s goodness for the very purpose of converting their souls. The Law of God helps prepare the heart and makes way for the Gospel.
Romans 7:7 “What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet.”
2. Psalm 19:7 “…the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.”
The “testimony of the Lord” is another name for the Word of God or the scriptures because they testify about God; who He is, what He is like, and His many mighty acts. Especially testifying about Christ Jesus, the Old Testament Scriptures point to the Lord Jesus and forecast His great mission.
John 5:39 “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.”
The testimony of the Lord is able to make one wise – Wise to know the way to Salvation, and Wise to live right.
2 Timothy 3:15 “And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.”
3. Psalm 19:8 “The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart…”
Statutes = mandate, precepts. These are rules/instructions to guide a person in God’s right way.
All God's precepts, regarding all things, are right and will lead us to live rightly and set us in the right direction if we receive them and submit to them; and, because they are right, they rejoice the heart.
Psalm 119:128 “Therefore I esteem all thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way.”
4. Psalm 19:8 “…the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.”
God’s commandment/Word can be trusted. Safety is found in God’s Word because of its integrity, perfection, and it is the Lord’s Word.
Proverbs 30:5 “Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.”
The Word of God gives understanding by illuminating a lost soul. God’s Word is light!
Psalm 119:130 “The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.”
5. Psalm 19:9 “The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever…”
A person that fears the Lord will obey His Word/Will. It is a pure thing and the beginning of wisdom.
1 John 2:17 “And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.”
Isaiah 40:8 “The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.”
6. Psalm 19:9 “…the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.”
"The word here rendered judgments refers also to the revealed truth of God, with the idea that that has been judged or determined by him to be right and to be best. It is the result of the divine adjudication as to what is true, and what is best for man." - Barnes
God's Word is always true without exception, just and altogether righteous; not one Word of His is improper. God's Word is Good!!! AMEN and AMEN!!!
John 17:17 "Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth."
