Psalms 19

For the end, A Psalm of David.

1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims the work of His hands. 2Day to day utters speech, and night to night proclaims knowledge. 3There are no speeches or words, in which their voices are not heard. 4Their voice is gone out into all the earth, and their words to the ends of the world. 5In the sun He has set His tabernacle; and He came forth as a bridegroom out of His chamber; He will exalt as a giant to run His course. 6His going forth is from the extremity of heaven, and His circuit to the other end of heaven; and no one shall be hidden from His heat. 7The law of the Lord is perfect, converting souls; the testimony of the Lord is faithful, instructing babes. 8The ordinances of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is bright, enlightening the eyes. 9The fear of the Lord is pure, enduring forever and ever: the judgments of the Lord are true, and justified altogether. 10To be desired more than gold, and much precious stone; sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. 11For Your servant keeps to them; in the keeping of them there is great reward. 12Who will understand his transgressions? Purge me from my secret sins. 13And spare Your servant from the attack of strangers; if they do not gain the dominion over me, then shall I be blameless, and I shall be clear from great sin. 14So shall the sayings of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be pleasing continually before You, O Lord my helper, and my redeemer.
