The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.
All Commentaries on Psalms 19:8 Go To Psalms 19
Augustine of Hippo
9. "The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart" (ver. 8). All the statutes of the Lord are right in Him who taught not what He did not; that they who should imitate Him might rejoice in heart, in those things which they should do freely with love, not slavishly with fear. "The commandment of the Lord is lucid, enlightening the eyes." "The commandment of the Lord is lucid," with no veil of carnal observances, enlightening the sight of the inner man.
