Another parallel

A parallel of scripture is found in Philippians 4:8 and Psalm 19:7-14.

Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren,

Whatsoever things are true, [Psalm 19:7a The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul:]

Whatsoever things are honest, [Psalm 19:7b the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.]

Whatsoever things are just, [Psalm 19:8a The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart:]

Whatsoever things are pure, [Psalm 19:8b the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.]

Whatsoever things are lovely, [Psalm 19:9a The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever:}

Whatsoever things are of good report; {Psalm 19;9b the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.}

If there be any virtue, [Psalm 19:10a More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold:]

And if there be any praise, [Psalm 19:10b sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.]

Think on these things. [Psalm 19:11-14 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward. Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults. Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression. Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.]
