Psalm 19

 

For the director of Music.  A psalm of David.

 

 

1                    The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands.

 

2                    Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge.

 

3                    There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. [a]

 

4                    Their voice [b] goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.  In the heavens He has pitched a tent for the sun,

 

5                    which is like a bridegroom coming forth from his pavilion, like a champion rejoicing to run his course.

 

6                    It rises at one end of the heavens and makes its circuit to the other; nothing is hidden from its heat.

 

7                    The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul.  The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple.

 

8                    The precepts of the LORD are right, giving joy to the heart.  The commands of the LORD are radiant, giving light to the eyes.

 

9                    The fear of the LORD is pure, enduring forever.  The ordinances of the LORD are sure and altogether righteous.

 

10               They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the comb.

 

11               By them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward.

 

12               Who can discern his errors?  Forgive my hidden faults.

 

13               Keep your servant also from willful sins; may they not rule over me.  Then will I be blameless, innocent of great transgression.

 

14               May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.



[a]3 Or They have no speech, there are no words; / no sound is heard from them
