Chapter 19


For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.

The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament showeth his handiwork.


Day unto day uttereth speech, And night unto night showeth knowledge.


There is no speech nor language; Their voice is not 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,


Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, And rejoiceth as a strong man to run his course.


His 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.


The law of Jehovah is perfect, restoring the soul: The testimony of Jehovah is sure, making wise the simple.


The precepts of Jehovah are right, rejoicing the heart: The commandment of Jehovah is pure, enlightening the eyes.


The fear of Jehovah is clean, enduring for ever: The ordinances of Jehovah are true, and righteous altogether.


More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold; Sweeter also than honey and the droppings of the honeycomb.


Moreover by them is thy servant warned: In keeping them there is great reward.


Who can discern his errors? Clear thou me from hidden faults.


Keep 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.


Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in thy sight, O Jehovah, my rock, and my redeemer.
