Psalm 19

God’s Glory in Creation and the Law

To the leader. A Psalm of David.

1

The heavens are telling the glory of God;

and the firmament proclaims his handiwork.

2

Day to day pours forth speech,

and night to night declares knowledge.

3

There is no speech, nor are there words;

their voice is not heard;

4

yet their voice goes out through all the earth,

and their words to the end of the world.

 

In the heavens he has set a tent for the sun,

5

which comes out like a bridegroom from his wedding canopy,

and like a strong man runs its course with joy.

6

Its rising is from the end of the heavens,

and its circuit to the end of them;

and nothing is hid from its heat.

 

7

The law of the Lord is perfect,

reviving the soul;

the decrees of the Lord are sure,

making wise the simple;

8

the precepts of the Lord are right,

rejoicing the heart;

the commandment of the Lord is clear,

enlightening the eyes;

9

the fear of the Lord is pure,

enduring forever;

the ordinances of the Lord are true

and righteous altogether.

10

More to be desired are they than gold,

even much fine gold;

sweeter also than honey,

and drippings of the honeycomb.

 

11

Moreover by them is your servant warned;

in keeping them there is great reward.

12

But who can detect their errors?

Clear me from hidden faults.

13

Keep back your servant also from the insolent;

do not let them have dominion over me.

Then I shall be blameless,

and innocent of great transgression.

 

14

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart

be acceptable to you,

O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.
