19:1 (To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.) The a heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.

    (a) He reproaches man for his ingratitude, seeing the heavens, which are dumb creatures, set forth God's glory.
19:2 b Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.
    (b) The continual success of the day and night is sufficient to declare God's power and goodness.
19:3 [There is] no speech nor c language, [where] their voice is not heard.
    (c) The heavens are a schoolmaster to all nations, no matter how barbarous.
19:4 Their d 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,
    (d) The heavens are as a line of great capital letters to show God's glory to us.
19:5 Which [is] as a bridegroom coming out of his e chamber, [and] rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.
    (e) Or vail. The custom was that the bride and bridegroom would stand under a vail together, and after come forward with great solemnity and rejoicing of the assembly.
19:7 The f law of the LORD [is] perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD [is] sure, making wise the simple.
    (f) Though the creatures cannot serve, yet this should be sufficient to lead us to him.

19:9 The fear of the LORD [is] clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD [are] g true [and] righteous h altogether.

    (g) So that all man's inventions and intentions are lies.
    (h) Everyone without exception.
19:10 More to be i desired [are they] than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
    (i) Unless God's word is esteemed above all worldly things, it is contemned.
19:11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: [and] in keeping of them [there is] great k reward.
    (k) For God accepts our endeavour though it is far from perfect.
19:12 Who can understand [his] l errors? cleanse thou me from secret [faults].
    (l) Then there is no reward of duty, but of grace: for where sin is, there death is the reward.
19:13 Keep back thy servant also from m presumptuous [sins]; let them not have dominion over me: n then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.
    (m) Which are done purposely and from malice.
    (n) If you suppress my wicked affections by your Holy Spirit.
19:14 Let the words of my mouth, and the o meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
    (o) That I may obey you in thought, word and deed.
