    VERSE 1
    - A.M. 2956.  B.C. 1048.  (Title.)  A Psalm.
      This Psalm is supposed to have been composed by David when
      made king of Israel; though some think it was written by him
      when accused of traitorous designs against Saul.  It is a
      most sublime ode on the wisdom, knowledge, presence, and
      justice of God:  the sentiments are grand, the style highly
      elevated, and the images various, beautiful, and impressive.
    
    - thou hast.

     - If I take.
      Light has been proved, by many experiments, to travel at the
      astonishing rate of 194,188 miles in one second of time; and
      comes from the sun to the earth, a distance of 95,513,794
      miles in 8 minutes and nearly 12 seconds!  But, could I even
      fly upon the wings or rays of the morning light, which
      diffuses itself with such velocity over the globe from east
      to west, instead of being beyond Thy reach, or by this sudden
      transition be able to escape Thy notice, Thy arm could still
      at pleasure prevent or arrest my progress, and I should still
      be encircled with the immensity of Thy essence.  The
      sentiment in this noble passage is remarkably striking and
      the description truly sublime.
