Psalm 19

                                               For the director of music. A psalm of David.

1 The heavens declare the glory of god;

the sky proclaim the work of his hands.

2 Day after day they pour forth speech;

night after night they display knowledge.

3 there is no speech or language

where their voice is not heard.

4 their voice goes out into all the earth,

their words to the ends of the world.

In the heavens he has pitched a tent for the

sun,

5 which is like a bridegroom coming forth

from his pavilion,

like a champion rejoicing to run his course.

6 It rises at one end of the heavens

and makes its circuit to the other;

nothing is hidden from its heat.

7 The law of the Lord is perfect,

reviving the soul.

The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy,

making wise the simple.

8 The precepts of the Lord are right,

giving joy to the heart.

The commands of the Lord are radiant,

giving light to the eyes.

9 The fear of the Lord is pure,

enduring forever.

The ordinances of the Lord are sure

and altogether righteous.

10 They are more precious than gold,

than much pure gold;

they are sweeter than honey,

than honey from the comb.

11 By them is your servant warned;

in keeping them there is great reward.

12 Who can discern his errors?

Forgive my hidden faults.

13 Keep your servant also from willful sins;

may they not rule over me.

then will I be blameless,

innocent of great transgression.

14 May the words of my mouth and the 

meditation of my heart

be pleasing in your sight,

O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.
