The Works and the Word of God.

1 The 1heavens are telling of the glory of God; And their 2expanse is declaring the work of His hands.
3 There is no speech, nor are there words; Their voice is not heard.
4 Their 5line has gone out through all the earth, And their utterances to the end of the world. In them He has 6placed a tent for the sun,
5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber; It rejoices as a strong man to run his course.
6 Its 7rising is from one end of the heavens, And its circuit to the other end of them; And there is nothing hidden from its heat.
7 8The law of the LORD is 9perfect, 10restoring the soul; The testimony of the LORD is 11sure, making 12wise the simple.
8 The precepts of the LORD are 13right, 14rejoicing the heart; The commandment of the LORD is 15pure, 16enlightening the eyes.
9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever; The judgments of the LORD are 17true; they are 18righteous altogether.
10 They are more desirable than 19gold, yes, than much fine gold; 20Sweeter also than honey and the drippings of the honeycomb.
11 Moreover, by them 21Your servant is warned; In keeping them there is great 22reward.
12 Who can 23discern his errors? 24Acquit me of 25hidden faults.
13 Also keep back Your servant 26from presumptuous sins; Let them not 27rule over me; Then I will be 28blameless, And I shall be acquitted of 29great transgression.
14 Let the words of my mouth and 30the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, 31my rock and my 32Redeemer.
