Psalm 19 ©

1 The works of God in the heavens proclaim their Maker's glory. 7 The excellency of the divine law. 12 David prayeth for God's grace and acceptance.


To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.


THE heavens adeclare the glory of God; and the *firmament sheweth his handywork.


bDay unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.


There is cno speech nor language, 1where their voice is not heard.


2Their dline 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,


Which is eas a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth fas a strong man to run a race.


His ggoing 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.


hThe 3law of the LORD is perfect, 4converting the soul: ithe testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the *simple.


The jstatutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is kpure, lenlightening the eyes.


The fear of the LORD is mclean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are n5true and righteous altogether.


More oto be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: psweeter also than honey and 6the honeycomb.


Moreover by them is thy servant qwarned: and in keeping of them there is rgreat reward.


Who scan understand his errors? cleanse thou me from tsecret faults.


Keep uback 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 7great transgression.


Let vthe words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, 8my strength, and my wredeemer.
