Psalm 19

Psalm 19 is an amazing Psalm! It proclaimed God in his creation as well as his word and then it invites God in to teach and guide.  It has everything!

It might be easier to grasp if you consider it in 3 different sections. 

The first section is about verses 1-6, in which we see the Psalmist declare the revelation and presentation of God in his creation.  If you have access, read this in The Message in addition to your regular transition.  However it is beautiful in all translations.  One note – The word used for ‘God’ in this section is the Hebrew ‘el’ which is actually a word used more for a generic reference to God.

The second section is verses 7-10, where we hear, or hear of, the word of God.  It is an explanation of what we failed to see in God’s revelation in his creation.  Here we see the reference move from a generic God to which all can ascribe to a more specific God, Our God, ‘Yahweh’.

The third section, verses 11-14 is an invitation to God to break into our reality and teach and guide us.

Read and reread this Psalm today, it is amazing!
