1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. 2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. 3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. 4 Their 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, 5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race. 6 His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof. 7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. 8 The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. 9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. 10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. 11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward. 12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults. 13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression. 14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

3 angela h = "In Romans 1:20 we read that God can be clearly seen in nature. We see the same being said here. In Romans, Paul is telling us that no one has an excuse not to worship the Creator.  "
4 Raymond Huerta = "The contemplation of the speaker in this poem resembles that of the speaker in Psalm 8: He contemplates the splendid design of the heavens overhead and sees in it a manifestation of God's beautiful work as creator. But the imagery and the movement of cosmic vision here immediately swerve in a very different direction from that of Psalm 8.Alter, Robert. "19." The Book of Psalms: A Translation with Commentary. New York: W.W. Norton, 2007. Print."

8 Raymond Huerta = "In the complementary parallelism of this line, we get a sense that the splendor of the creation is steadily manifested through the whole cycle, from sunlight to the moon and stars. Alter, Robert. "19." The Book of Psalms: A Translation with Commentary. New York: W.W. Norton, 2007. Print."
9 Enakshi Ganguly = ""The story of Psalm 19We do not know when David wrote Psalm 19. Perhaps it was one morning when he had been out all night with his sheep. He saw the sunrise over Moab. What David saw spoke to him about God. David remembered the stars that he saw at night. God made the stars. In the morning David saw the sun. God made the sun. All that David saw told him about God. He heard no words, there was no language. But David knew that everything was telling him about God.Then David remembered something else. He remembered the word of God. We call it the Bible. That told him about God as well. David did not have the whole Bible. He only had the start of the Old Testament. But it told him about God. And it made David very happy. But it also made David think. It made him say to himself, "Am I a good or bad man?" He prayed that God would forgive him. David was, perhaps, sitting on the top of a great rock. That spoke to him about God as well! God was like a rock to David. So David called God "My Rock". He also called God his Redeemer. A Redeemer is someone that pays the price to make a slave free."Source: http://www.easyenglish.info/psalms/psalm019-taw.htm"
10 Enakshi Ganguly = ""According to the text, Psalm 19 was composed by king David. Psalm 19 is said as part of the preliminary Jewish service on Saturday (Sabbath) mornings and also at festivals.[2] Parts of it are quoted in the New Testament Epistle to the Romans. Even though there only are 14 verses, they cover topics of central importance to the author's faith. He uses similes and metaphorical phrases to describe the purity of the law."Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psalm_19"

13 Raymond Huerta = "This is a seeming contradiction of verses 2 and 3. The psalmist can go on from this affirmation of speechlessness and silence to the declaration in the next verse of speech going out to the ends of the earth. Alter, Robert. "19." The Book of Psalms: A Translation with Commentary. New York: W.W. Norton, 2007. Print."
14 Raymond Huerta = "Some interpreters have viewed this section of the poem as a pagan hymn to a solar deity borrowed by the monotheistic poet from a poem written in Egypt by Judeans.Alter, Robert. "19." The Book of Psalms: A Translation with Commentary. New York: W.W. Norton, 2007. Print."
15 Enakshi Ganguly = ""At first, the metaphors of bridegroom and runner seem strange figures to apply to the glorious light of the sun, which — physically speaking — is nothing less then the "light of the world," sustaining its very life. But that actually makes it a beautiful type of the world's Creator, the Lord Jesus Christ. He indeed is the heavenly Bridegroom, coming forth to choose and claim His Bride, the Church, and the heavenly Runner, encouraging us who are in His Church to "run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross"(Hebrews 12:1,2)."Source: http://www.icr.org/article/808/248/"
16 Enakshi Ganguly = ""There is no doubt a parallel intended to be drawn between the heaven of grace and the heaven of nature. God's way of grace is sublime and broad, and full of his glory; in all its displays it is to be admired and studied with diligence; both its lights and its shades are instructive; it has been proclaimed, in a measure, to every people, and in due time shall be yet more completely published to the ends of the earth. Jesus, like a sun, dwells in the midst of revelation, tabernacling among men in all his brightness; rejoicing, as the Bridegroom of his church, to reveal himself to men; and, like a champion, to win unto himself renown. He makes a circuit of mercy, blessing the remotest corners of the earth; and there are no seeking souls, however degraded and depraved, who shall be denied the comfortable warmth and benediction of his love—even death shall feel the power of his presence, and resign the bodies of the saints, and this fallen earth shall be restored to its pristine glory."Source: http://www.spurgeon.org/treasury/ps019.htm"
17 Raymond Huerta = "The Hebrew contains a pun, for the word that means "heat," hamah, is also another name for the sun.Alter, Robert. "19." The Book of Psalms: A Translation with Commentary. New York: W.W. Norton, 2007. Print."
18 Cary W = "Psalm 19:7-9The Message (MSG)7-9 The revelation of God is whole    and pulls our lives together.The signposts of God are clear    and point out the right road.The life-maps of God are right,    showing the way to joy.The directions of God are plain    and easy on the eyes.God’s reputation is twenty-four-carat gold,    with a lifetime guarantee.The decisions of God are accurate    down to the nth degree."
19 Raymond Huerta = "There has been some debate among scholars as to whether in fact Psalm 19 might be a splicing together of two unrelated poems belonging to different genres. Cut and paste is a standard technique of literary composition in the Bible, one can say minimally that the redactor or, perhaps, redactor-poet, saw the two parts of the poem as constituting a single whole. Alter, Robert. "19." The Book of Psalms: A Translation with Commentary. New York: W.W. Norton, 2007. Print."
20 Sara Di Diego = "Or in other words, enlightening the mind with all the knowledge of god's commandments and teachings.Work Cited:http://www.biblestudytools.com/commentaries/wesleys-explanatory-notes/psalms-1-75/psalms-19.html"
21 Raymond Huerta = "Till this point, the general quality of perfection of God's teaching and its restorative force have been stressed. The images of this verse, the divine precepts are represented as sensually luscious, an object of desire and a source of sweetness.Alter, Robert. "19." The Book of Psalms: A Translation with Commentary. New York: W.W. Norton, 2007. Print."
22 Enakshi Ganguly = ""God's word warns the wicked not to go on in his wicked way, and warns the righteous not to turn from his good way. There is a reward, not only after keeping, but in keeping God's commandments. Religion makes our comforts sweet, and our crosses easy, life truly valuable, and death itself truly desirable. David not only desired to be pardoned and cleansed from the sins he had discovered and confessed, but from those he had forgotten or overlooked. All discoveries of sin made to us by the law, should drive us to the throne of grace, there to pray. His dependence was the same with that of every Christian who says, Surely in the Lord Jesus have I righteousness and strength. No prayer can be acceptable before God which is not offered in the strength of our Redeemer or Divine Kinsman, through Him who took our nature upon him, that he might redeem us unto God, and restore the long-lost inheritance. May our hearts be much affected with the excellence of the word of God; and much affected with the evil of sin, and the danger we are in of it, and the danger we are in by it."Source: http://www.christnotes.org/commentary.php?com=mhc&b=19&c=19"
23 angela h = "The prophet Jeremiah says "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?" Jeremiah 17:9.Just when we think we have arrived, we should ask God what else within ourselves do we need to work on. If we were perfect, we would be fit to be in heaven. Since we are still here, we can assume we haven't quite reached perfection yet. "
24 Raymond Huerta = "The speaker, having affirmed the supreme value of God's commandments, is impelled to confess that, even with the best intentions, an imperfect human being can scarcely be sure of never having violated any of them. He requests God's indulgence for any transgressions of the law.Alter, Robert. "19." The Book of Psalms: A Translation with Commentary. New York: W.W. Norton, 2007. Print."
25 angela h = "David admits here that he cannot keep from sinning and he needs God to keep him from sin. He asks God to help him not only to be clean outwardly but in his thoughts as well."
26 Sara Di Diego = "This phrase is believed to have been added much later, since "redeemer" can only address Jesus and his sacrifice that, at this point, was not known.Work Cited:http://www.biblestudytools.com/commentaries/wesleys-explanatory-notes/psalms-1-75/psalms-19.html"
