Years and years past weight down with the knowledge of good and evil acquired in this world. The paradigm of my human nature now resolved.
- You have invested me with perfect knowledge otherwise the knowledge flowing from Your throne of mercy. Quote:
THE HEAVENS declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows and proclaims His handiwork. [Rom_1:20-21]
Day after day pours forth speech, and night after night shows forth knowledge.
There is no speech nor spoken word [from the stars]; their voice is not heard.
Yet their voice [in evidence] goes out through all the earth, their sayings to the end of the world. Of the heavens has God made a tent for the sun, [Rom_10:18] which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber; and it rejoices as a strong man to run his course.
Its going forth is from the end of the heavens, and its circuit to the ends of it; and nothing [yes, no one] is hidden from the heat of it.
- (Romans 10:17-18. So faith comes by hearing [what is told], and what is heard comes by the preaching [of the message that came from the lips] of the Messiah Himself.
- But I ask, Have they not heard? Indeed they have; [for the Scripture says] Their voice [that of nature bearing God’s message] has gone out to all the earth, and their words to the far bounds of the world. [Psa_19:4])
The law of the Master is perfect, restoring the [whole] person; the testimony of the Master is sure, making wise the simple.
The precepts of the Master are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Master is pure and bright, enlightening the eyes.
The [reverent] fear of the Master is clean, enduring forever; the ordinances of the Master are true and righteous altogether.
