Psalm 19
NASB 1977
The Works and the Word of God.

For the choir director. A Psalm of David.

     1The heavens are telling of the glory of God;
            And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.

     2Day to day pours forth speech,
            And night to night reveals knowledge.

     3There is no speech, nor are there words;
            Their voice is not heard.

     4Their line has gone out through all the earth,
            And their utterances to the end of the world.
            In them He has placed a tent for the sun,

     5Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber;
            It rejoices as a strong man to run his course.

     6Its rising is from one end of the heavens,
            And its circuit to the other end of them;
            And there is nothing hidden from its heat.

     7The law of the LORD is perfect, restoring the soul;
            The testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.

     8The precepts 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 forever;
            The judgments of the LORD are true; they are righteous altogether.

     10They are more desirable than gold, yes, than much fine gold;
            Sweeter also than honey and the drippings of the honeycomb.

     11Moreover, by them Thy servant is warned;
            In keeping them there is great reward.

     12Who can discern his errors? Acquit me of hidden faults.

     13Also keep back Thy servant from presumptuous sins;
            Let them not rule over me;
            Then I shall be blameless,
            And I shall be acquitted of great transgression.

     14Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
            Be acceptable in Thy sight,
            O LORD, my rock and my Redeemer.
