In not a few instances the Scriptures possess both a literal and a mystical force: Example 1

The first six verses of Psalm 19 contain a sublime description of the perfections of God as they are displayed in the material creation, especially in the heavenly bodies; yet it is quite evident that the apostle Paul also regarded what is there said of the sun and stars as their being Divinely designed emblems of the kingdom of grace. For in Romans 10:4-17, we find that he had before him the universal publication of the Gospel, and that in verse 18 he quoted from Psalm 19:

“But I say, Have they not heard? Yes, verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world.”
