Psalms 19

PSALM 19.

To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
where…: or, without these their voice is heard: Heb. without their voice heard
Their 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
line: or, rule, or, direction
Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race. His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends 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.
law: or, doctrine
,
converting: or, restoring
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.
true: Heb. truth
10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
the honeycomb: Heb. the dropping of honeycombs
11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward. 12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults. 13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.
the great: or, much
14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O  Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.
strength: Heb. rock
