Pristine Grace

Ps 19:10, (GILL), More to be desired [are they] than gold,.... This refers to all the truths in the word of God; to all the doctrines of the Gospel; which, by good men, are more desirable, and by them more prized and valued, than all worldly riches and treasure;

yea, than much fine gold: more than gold, and the best of gold, and a great deal of it, than thousands of gold and silver; see Ps 119:72 Pr 8:10;

sweeter also than honey, and the honeycomb; or "the dropping of the honeycombs" [h], which is the purest and sweetest of the honey; and what honey is to the natural taste of men, that is the Gospel, and the truths of it, to the spiritual taste of believers, Ps 119:103; and when the presence of Christ is enjoyed, his love is shed abroad, and the blessings of his grace are partook of, the ordinances of the Gospel are very delightful, So 2:3; eloquence, and eloquent orators, are sometimes described by mellifluous words; or by their expressions being like honey, and sweeter than that [i].

[h] Mypwu tpwn "stillatione favorum", Vatablus, Rivetus, Cocceius; so Ainsworth. [i] tou kai apo glwsshv, Homer. Iliad. 1. v. 249.
