Psalms 19

The Works and the Word of God.

For the choir director. A Psalm of David.

1 The a  heavens are telling of the glory of God;
And their b  expanse is declaring the work of His hands.
2Day to c  day pours forth speech,
And d  night to night reveals knowledge.
3There is no speech, nor are there words;
Their voice is not heard.
Another reading is sound
f  line has gone out through all the earth,
And their utterances to the end of the world.
In them He has g  placed a tent for the sun,
5Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber;
It rejoices as a strong man to run his course.
6Its h  rising is from
Lit the
one end of the heavens,
And its circuit to the
Lit the ends
other end of them;
And there is nothing hidden from its heat.

7 k  The law of the  Lord is
I.e. blameless
m  perfect n  restoring the soul;
The testimony of the  Lord is o  sure, making p  wise the simple.
8The precepts of the  Lord are q  right r  rejoicing the heart;
The commandment of the  Lord is s  pure t  enlightening the eyes.
9The fear of the  Lord is clean, enduring forever;
The judgments of the  Lord are u  true; they are v  righteous altogether.
10They are more desirable than w  gold, yes, than much fine gold;
x  Sweeter also than honey and the drippings of the honeycomb.
11Moreover, by them y  Your servant is warned;
In keeping them there is great z  reward.
12Who can aa  discern his errors? ab  Acquit me of ac  hidden faults.
13Also keep back Your servant ad  from presumptuous sins;
Let them not ae  rule over me;
Then I will be
Lit complete
ag  blameless,
And I shall be acquitted of ah  great transgression.
14Let the words of my mouth and ai  the meditation of my heart
Be acceptable in Your sight,
O  Lord aj  my rock and my ak  Redeemer.
