Psalm 19: A Psalm of David
Concerning the works and word of God.
The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament shows His handiwork.
Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night shows knowledge. There is no
speech nor language where where there voice is not heard; their line is gone
out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them has
He set a tabernacle for the sun, which is as a bridegroom coming out of his
chamber and rejoicing as a strong man to run a race. His going forth is from
the end of the heavens and his circuit to the end of it. And there is nothing
hid from the heat thereof. The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul,
the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple; the statutes of the
Lord are right, rejoicing the heart, the commandment of the Lord is pure
enlightening the eyes; the fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever; the
judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether, More to be desired are
they than gold, yea, than much fine gold, sweeter also than honey and the
honeycomb. Moreover by them is thy servants 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 sin, let them not have
dominion over me, then will I be upright and I will be innocent from the great
transgression. Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be
acceptable in thy, O Lord my strength and my redeemer.
