"God appears in creation, in instruction, in relationship, and in flesh..."



Psalm 19 NRSV


The heavens are telling the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims his handiwork.


Day to day pours forth speech, and night to night declares knowledge.


There is no speech, nor are there words; their voice is not heard;


yet their voice goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In the heavens he has set a tent for the sun,


which comes out like a bridegroom from his wedding canopy, and like a strong man runs its course with joy.


Its rising is from the end of the heavens, and its circuit to the end of them; and nothing is hid from its heat.


The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul; the decrees of the Lord are sure, making wise the simple;


the precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is clear, enlightening the eyes;


the fear of the Lord is pure, enduring forever; the ordinances of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.


More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey, and drippings of the honeycomb.


Moreover by them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward.


But who can detect their errors? Clear me from hidden faults.


Keep back your servant also from the insolent; do not let them have dominion over me.


Then I shall be blameless, and innocent of great transgression.


Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.
