Psalms 19


1The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament showeth his handiwork.
2Day unto day uttereth speech, And night unto night showeth knowledge.
3There is no speech nor language; Their voice is not heard.
4Their line is gone out through all the earth, And their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,
5Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, And rejoiceth as a strong man to run his course.
6His going forth is from the end of the heavens, And his circuit unto the ends of it; And there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.
7The law of Jehovah is perfect, restoring the soul: The testimony of Jehovah is sure, making wise the simple.
8The precepts of Jehovah are right, rejoicing the heart: The commandment of Jehovah is pure, enlightening the eyes.
9The fear of Jehovah is clean, enduring for ever: The ordinances of Jehovah are true, `and' righteous altogether.
10More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold; Sweeter also than honey and the droppings of the honeycomb.
11Moreover by them is thy servant warned: In keeping them there is great reward.
12Who can discern `his' errors? Clear thou me from hidden `faults'.
13Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous `sins'; Let them not have dominion over me: Then shall I be upright, And I shall be clear from great transgression.
14Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in thy sight, O Jehovah, my rock, and my redeemer. Psalm 20 For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.
