“The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul.”
– Psalms 19:7
“Says the psalmist, “The Law of the Lord is perfect.” How wonderful in its simplicity, its comprehensiveness and perfection, is the law of Jehovah! It is so brief that we can easily commit every precept to memory, and yet so far-reaching as to express the whole will of God, and to take cognizance not only of the outward actions, but of the thoughts and intents, the desires the emotions, of the heart. Human laws can not do this. They deal with the outward actions only. A man may be a transgressor, and yet conceal his misdeeds from human eyes; he may be a criminal – a thief, a murderer, or an adulterer – but for so long as he is not discovered, the law can not condemn him as guilty.”
– ST Jan 10, 1911
