To the Overcomer,
A Psalm of David.

1The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows the work of his hands. 2One day provides a word for the next day, and one night declares wisdom unto the next night. 3There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. 4Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them he has set a tabernacle for the sun, 5which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber and rejoices as a strong man to run a race. 6His going forth is from the end of the heavens, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.

7The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul; the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. 8The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. 9The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever; the rights of the LORD are true, they are all just. 10More to be desired are they than gold, than much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. 11Moreover by them is thy slave warned, and in keeping them there is great reward. 12Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults. 13Keep back thy slave also from pride and arrogance; let them not have dominion over me; then I shall be perfect, and I shall be innocent of the great rebellion. 14Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
