Study Guide – Psalm 19:7-14


law of the Lord is

the soul.

The statutes of the Lord are

wise the simple.

The precepts of
the Lord are right,

joy to the heart.

The commands of the Lord are

light to the eyes.

The fear of
the Lord is pure,


The decrees of the Lord are

all of them are righteous.

10 They
are more precious than gold,

much pure gold;

they are sweeter than honey,

honey from the honeycomb.

11 By them your
servant is warned;

keeping them there is great reward.

12 But who can discern
their own errors?

my hidden faults.

13 Keep your servant
also from willful sins;

they not rule over me.

Then I will be blameless,

of great transgression.

14 May
these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart

pleasing in your sight,

    Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.

LAW perfect refreshes the soul


Look at verse 10. How could
it ever be possible that laws would be more desirable than gold? How could they
be sweeter than honey?


Look at verses 11-12. What
practical benefits does following God’s patterns bring to a person’s life?


Look at verses 12-13. What

Make verse 14 a prayer of
blessing for yourself. Repeat it again and again throughout the next 24 hours.
