The teachings of the Lord are perfect.They renew the soul. The testimony of the Lord is dependable. It makes gullible people wise. The instructions of the Lord are correct.They make the heart rejoice. The command of the Lord is radiant. It makes the eyes shine. The fear of the Lord is pure. It endures forever. The decisions of the Lord are true. They are completely fair. As your servant I am warned by them. There is a great reward in following them. (Psalm 19:7-9, 11 GWT)
The heart of the Law is God and His immeasurable goodness. The Law’s intent is bringing freedom for the soul not bondage.
