Psalm 19
New American Standard Bible
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 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.
