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 Your servant is warned; In keeping them there is great reward.
12Who can discern [his] errors? Acquit me of hidden [faults].
13Also keep back Your servant from presumptuous [sins]; Let them not rule over me; Then I will 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 Your sight, O LORD, my rock and my Redeemer.
