Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

In this article we intend to introduce you, dear reader, to a very beautiful quotation in Romans 10:18 taken from Psalm 19:4. This Psalm, indeed, is very well known. Most children of Christian parentage have memorized this psalm already in early childhood years. We, therefore, scarcely need to introduce the reader to this psalm as such. It is very familiar to us. However, the manner in which it is at least in part quoted by the apostle Paul is not so well known. Fact is, that in Rom. 10:18 this particular passage from Psalm 19:4 is woven into the thought...

“For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.” Psalm 91:11 This psalm describes God’s care of His children. The shadow of the Almighty covers them (1). He is their Refuge and Fortress (2). Surely He shall deliver (3). His truth is their shield and buckler (4). The psalm shows us that God’s care is extended toward us even when we are unaware of it. It is that great and that detailed. Our text teaches us that God’s care of us includes His use of the holy angels. Satan used (misused) this text...
