1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the
firmament sheweth his handywork.
unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.
3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
4 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and
their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,
5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth
as a strong man to run a race.
going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.
7 The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.
8 The statutes of the Lord are
right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is
pure, enlightening the eyes.
fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments
of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.
10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than
much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.
12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me
from secret faults.
back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be
innocent from the great transgression.
the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.
