Psalm 19

Come hear the musicality of Psalm 19. Consider https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-M_IBtaN50 to witness the exuberance of Psalm 19:8 as a hypnotic, religious song. The opening verses of the Psalm were put into classical music by Bach , Haydn, and Beethoven. This Psalm presents the  the sun and stars as producing an inaudible symphony, and describes rejoicing over the sun’s rising each morning as a groom emerging from the huppah, the wedding canopy. The punchline of the Psalm’s focus on Creation and Revelation is Redemption: the tarnished soul of the Psalmist is worthy of cleansing forgiveness. We shall examine the fifteen verse psalm together.
