Arthur Peake's Commentary on the Bible
Psalms 19

 

 

Verses 1-14

XIX. A. Psalms 19:1-6. The Revelation of God in Nature.—A fragment of a longer poem. Day and night are pictured as living beings who hand on the tradition of God's creative act from age to age (see Job 3:3-10*).

Psalms 19:3 is a prosaic gloss to guard against any idea that the heavenly bodies speak in the literal sense.

Psalms 19:4. for "line" read "voice."—In them: i.e. "in the heavens," but the text is probably corrupt.

XIX. B. Psalms 19:7-13. An Independent Poem in Praise of the Law.—In Psalms 19:13 follow mg. The "proud" are bad Jews.
