To read the Bible in a year, read Psalms 19–21 on July 16, In the year of our Lord 2019

By Don Ruhl

Psalm 19.7–11 highlights what the word of the Lord is and what it does for us. David loved the word of the Lord because David loved the Lord. That is why David wrote:

More to be desired are they than gold,
Yea, than much fine gold;
Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
(Psalm 19.10)

David desired the Lord’s word above gold, pricing the word higher than the value of gold. When David took the word in, he found it sweeter than honey.
