Psalm 19

1 The heavens declare the glory of God:
    and the firmament proclaims his handiwork;
2 One day tells it to another:
    and night to night communicates knowledge.
3 There is no speech or language:
    nor are their voices heard;
4 Yet their sound has gone out through all the world:
    and their words to the ends of the earth.
5 There he has pitched a tent for the sun:
    which comes out as a bridegroom from his chamber, and rejoices like a strong man to run his course.
6 Its rising is at one end of the heavens, and its circuit to their farthest bound:
    and nothing is hidden from its heat.
7 The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul:
    the command of the Lord is true, and makes wise the simple.
8 The precepts of the Lord are right, and rejoice the heart:
    the commandment of the Lord is pure, and gives light to the eyes.
9 The fear of the Lord is clean, and endures for ever:
    the judgements of the Lord are unchanging, and righteous every one.
10 More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold:
    sweeter also than honey, than the honey that drips from the comb.
11 Moreover, by them is your servant taught:
    and in keeping them there is great reward.
12 Who can know their own unwitting sins?:
    O cleanse me from my secret faults.
13 Keep your servant also from presumptuous sins, lest they get the mastery over me:
    so I shall be clean, and innocent of great offence.
14 May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight:
    O Lord, my strength and my redeemer.
