1 To the chief music-maker. A Psalm. Of David.
2 19:1The heavens are sounding the glory of God; the arch of the sky makes clear the work of his hands.
3 19:2Day after day it sends out its word, and night after night it gives knowledge.
4 19:3There are no words or language; their voice makes no sound.
5 19:4Their line has gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them has he put a tent for the sun,
6 19:5Who is like a newly married man coming from his bride-tent, and is glad like a strong runner starting on his way.
7 19:6His going out is from the end of the heaven, and his circle to the ends of it; there is nothing which is not open to his heat.
8 19:7The law of the Lord is good, giving new life to the soul: the witness of the Lord is certain, giving wisdom to the foolish.
9 19:8The orders of the Lord are right, making glad the heart: the rule of the Lord is holy, giving light to the eyes.
10 19:9The fear of the Lord is clean, and has no end; the decisions of the Lord are true and full of righteousness.
11 19:10More to be desired are they than gold, even than much shining gold; sweeter than the dropping honey.
12 19:11By them is your servant made conscious of danger, and in keeping them there is great reward.
13 19:12Who has full knowledge of his errors? make me clean from secret evil.
14 19:13Keep your servant back from sins of pride; let them not have rule over me: then will I be upright and free from great sin.
15 19:14Let the words of my mouth and the thoughts of my heart be pleasing in your eyes, O Lord, my strength and my salvation.
