Psalm 19 ~ The Instruction of Yahweh


A personal confession adapted from the Psalms.

The Instruction of Yahweh ~ from Psalm 19

The instruction of Yahweh is whole and complete;
It makes me come alive.
The testimony of Yahweh is dependable;
When I am foolish, it makes me wise.
The direction of Yahweh is straight and level,
And fills me with gladness.
The word of Yahweh is clean and clear,
And causes me to see.

Yahweh’s honor is pure and lasts forever.
His decisions are always trustworthy and right.
They are richer to me than a fortune in fine gold,
And sweeter than honey fresh from the comb.
They enlighten my way and keep me from danger.
They lead me into a rich, rewarding life.

God instructs me concerning hidden errors
And clears me of faults I did not know.
He pulls me back from willful sins
And will not let them rule over me.
So I am blameless before Him,
Cleansed of a multitude of sins.*

I yield the words of my mouth
And the thoughts of my heart
To Yahweh, my Rock and My Redeemer,
And I have favor before His face.

* “If we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin ... If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:7,9)
