Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 19:1-14.
Psalm 19 is a Psalm of David to the Chief Musician. I love this Psalm. David talks about how the heavens and the earth declare the glory of God and show His handiwork.
We see God’s work in creation everywhere we look, from the earth, the sun, the moon, and the stars. They don’t speak, but their very existence show the glory of God. When we look at all the creatures God created and all their different attributes we see His handiwork.
John 1:1-4 tells us, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men.”
Psalm 19:7-11 tells us about the law of the LORD. Some of the words that the Psalmist uses to describe the law are: perfect, sure, and right. They are standards that God set forth for us.
David asks, “Who can understand his own errors?” We have to accept the fact that we are all sinners and we need Jesus to save us from our sins.
One of my favorite verses is Psalm 19:14 which says, “Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.” What a great prayer for all of us.
Daily Bible Reading:
1 [[To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.]] 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.
Things to think about:
- How do the heavens declare the glory of God?
- What was the purpose of the law?
- What do the words in verse 14 mean to you?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank You for this Scripture in the book of Psalms. Thank You for Your creation; the heavens, earth, sun, moon, stars, and all the earth that declare Your glory. Help us to give thanks to You for all of Your provision. Let the words of our mouths, and the meditation of our hearts, be acceptable in Thy sight, O LORD, our strength, and our redeemer. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

About the book:
The Book of Psalms: Part 1 Chapters 1-30 by Deborah H. Bateman is part of the Daily Bible Reading Series. The book of Psalms contains 150 chapters. Deborah divided The Book of Psalms into five books to make it easier to read and study. Each book will contain approximately thirty chapters from the book of Psalms.
Psalm 119 will not be included in The Book of Psalms since Deborah has already published a book about it called: Psalm 119: Thy Word is a Lamp unto My Feet. The book of Psalms is one of Deborah’s favorite books of the Bible. It is a great book to read if you’re ever feeling down or need to renew your relationship with Christ. King David went through a lot of tough times in his lifetime, but he loved God and trusted God to protect him from the enemies.
The book of Psalms was written by various people. About half of it was attributed to King David, whether they were written by David or for David is questioned by some biblical scholars. Some of the Psalms were written by Asaph and some say they were written for the sons of Korah and even Moses and Solomon were writers of the Psalms. The Psalms consists of poetry that was primarily meant to be used as songs of praise to the Lord.
The Book of Psalms Part 1 Chapters 1-30 contains thirty-one Daily Bible Reading Lessons. Each lesson contains a brief commentary by the author, the Daily Bible Reading Scriptures, a few questions for contemplation or discussion, and a prayer of the day. It is a great Bible study for individuals or groups.
