The Psalms 19

The Works and Word of God
To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.

1  The heavens declare the glory of God;
and the firmament showeth his handiwork.
2  Day unto day uttereth speech,
and night unto night showeth knowledge.
3  There is no speech nor language,
where their voice is not heard.
4  Their line is gone out through all the earth,
and their words to the end of the world. Rom. 10.18
In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,
5  which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,
and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.
6  His going forth is from the end of the heaven,
and his circuit unto the ends of it:
and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.
7  The law of the LORD is perfect,
converting the soul:
the testimony of the LORD is sure,
making wise the simple.
8  The statutes of the LORD are right,
rejoicing the heart:
the commandment of the LORD is pure,
enlightening the eyes.
9  The fear of the LORD is clean,
enduring for ever:
the judgments of the LORD are true
and righteous altogether.
10  More to be desired are they than gold,
yea, than much fine gold:
sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
11  Moreover by them is thy servant warned:
and in keeping of them there is great reward.
12  Who can understand his errors?
Cleanse thou me from secret faults.
13  Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins;
let them not have dominion over me:
then shall I be upright,
and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.
14  Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart,
be acceptable in thy sight,
O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
