Psalms 19

To the chief musician, a psalm of David.

The heavens relate the glory of God; and the expanse telleth of the works of his hands. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night showeth knowledge. There is no speech, there are no words, their voice is not heard. But their melody extendeth through all the earth, and to the end of the world their words. For the sun hath he set a tabernacle among them; And he goeth out as a bridegroom from his chamber, he is glad like a strong man to run his course; From the end of the heavens is his going forth, and his circuit is unto their ends: and there is nothing hidden from his heat. The law of the Lord is perfect, quieting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. The precepts of the Lord are upright, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is clear, enlightening the eyes. 10 The fear of the Lord is pure, enduring for ever: the ordinances of the Lord are the truth, they are just altogether. 11 They are those which are to be desired more than gold, and much fine gold; and they are sweeter than honey and the dropping of honeycomb. 12 Moreover thy servant is admonished by them: in keeping them there is great reward. 13 Who can guard against errors? from secret faults do thou cleanse me. 14 Also from presumptuous sins withhold thy servant; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be blameless, and I shall be clear from any great transgression. May the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable before thee, O Lord, my Rock, and my Redeemer.
