“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Psalm 19:8-9




The commandments of the Lord are right,

bringing joy to the heart.

The commands of the Lord are clear,

giving insight for living.


Reverence for the Lord is pure,

lasting forever.

The laws of the Lord are true;

each one is fair.


– Psalm 19:8-9 (NLT)






God’s Commandments

lead us into the right and straight paths of truth and holiness

and, as we stand in awe

of the Lord who cleanses our soul from all that blemishes it,

their effect is greatjoy in our heart.


They are not felt as stern commands,

but as gracious intimations of what God desires us to do for our own good.


God’s laws have been written for our instruction

and for our salvation.

By following His commandments,

we are revering Him.


The opposite is also true

and so are the consequences which we will bring upon ourselves

if we choose to move along our own selfish paths.


God’s laws direct us along the right way

and lead us to eternal glory and happiness.






Your commandments bring joy, O Lord – they are life.

Preserve my soul, Lord, in accordance with Your love!
