An Exposition of Psalm 19, Part One

Psalm 19:1-6  (ID: 3239)

"Nature is my church" is a popular expression, but is it consistent with what the Bible teaches about God, creation, and ourselves? Alistair Begg explains that although creation is a witness to God's majesty and power that leaves men and women without excuse, only the Word of God can give spiritual life. The Word of God points us to the Son of God and enables us to bow in humility before the works of God.


The Law of the Lord Is Perfect

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.

1The heavens declare the glory of God,

and the sky above1 proclaims his handiwork.

2Day to day pours out speech,

and night to night reveals knowledge.

3There is no speech, nor are there words,

whose voice is not heard.

4Their voice2 goes out through all the earth,

and their words to the end of the world.

In them he has set a tent for the sun,

5which comes out like a bridegroom leaving his chamber,

and, like a strong man, runs its course with joy.

6Its rising is from the end of the heavens,

and its circuit to the end of them,

and there is nothing hidden from its heat.
