Psalm 19 | Games

Psalm 19 starts with the heavens, the sun, and it’s ‘tent’, the creation crying out the glory of God. Then it switches suddenly and looks not out the window but down to the written word, the messages of God wrapped up in feeble letters and wobbly grammar. All these games take their inspiration directly from those ideas and specific verses in the text.
