(God’s truths are) Sweeter than honey and the drippings of the honeycomb. Psalm 19:10b
After having asked in a few words the Lord's blessing upon His precious Word, I begin to meditate on the Word of God, searching, as it were, into every verse, to get blessing out of it; not for the sake of the public ministry of the Word; not for the sake of preaching on what I had meditated upon, but for the sake of obtaining food for my own soul. George Fredrick Müller, 1805-98, a Christian evangelist and coordinator of British orphanages

.by them (God’s truths – usually in His Word) Your servant is warned. Psalm 19:11a

In keeping them (God’s truths – found primarily in His Word) there is great reward. Psalm 19:11b For a man who has wrapped his will in God's will, put his life consciously into the stream of the divine Life, freed his soul from all personal ambitions, taken his life on trust as a divine gift -- that for such a man there is an over-ruling Providence which guards and guides him in every incident of his life, from the greatest to the least. George Seaver, Commemoration of Wulfstan, Bishop of Worcester, 1095

Who can understand his errors? Cleanse me from secret faults. Psalm 19:12 Hidden sins are so much a part of us that we don’t even realize much of our own sin. God has to reveal them and then deal with them in us. Steven J. Cole, Flagstaff Christian Fellowship, 1993
