Psalms 19

To the chief Musician, A Psalm of Dawid.

1 The heavens declare the glory of God (Elohim); and the firmament sheweth His handywork.

2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth 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. 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 Torah of יהוה is perfect, converting the soul; the testimony of יהוה is sure, making wise the simple.

8 The statutes of יהוה are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of יהוה is pure, enlightening the eyes.

9 The fear of יהוה is clean, enduring forever; the judgments of יהוה 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 Your servant warned; and in keeping of them there is great reward.

12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse You me from secret faults.

13 Keep back Your 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 Your sight, O יהוה, my strength, and my redeemer.
