Sweeter than Honey

Psa. 19:7    The law of the LORD is perfect,
reviving the soul;
the decrees of the LORD are sure,
making wise the simple; 
8 the precepts of the LORD are right,
rejoicing the heart;
the commandment of the LORD is clear,
enlightening the eyes; 
9 the fear of the LORD is pure,
enduring forever;
the ordinances of the LORD are true
and righteous altogether. 
10 More to be desired are they than gold,
even much fine gold;
sweeter also than honey,
and drippings of the honeycomb.
Psa. 19:11    Moreover by them is your servant warned;
in keeping them there is great reward. 
12 But who can detect their errors?
Clear me from hidden faults. 
13 Keep back your servant also from the insolent;
do not let them have dominion over me.
Then I shall be blameless,
and innocent of great transgression.
Psa. 19:14    Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
be acceptable to you,
O LORD, my rock and my redeemer.

Psalm 19:7-14

What does the prayer offered in verse 14 of this Psalm have to do with the statements in verses 7-10? How do the verses in 7-10 speak to us about the role of the Shepherd? How is the prayer in verse 14 indicative of our role as sheep?

Memory Verse – Psalm 23:1 – The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
