Common English Bible (CEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Heaven is declaring God's glory; the sky is proclaiming his handiwork. 1 The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
2 One day gushes the news to the next, and one night informs another what needs to be known. 2 Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge.
3 Of course, there's no speech, no words— their voices can't be heard— 3 There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard.

7 The LORD's Instruction is perfect, reviving one's very being. The LORD's laws are faithful, making naive people wise. 7 The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul. The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple.
8 The LORD's regulations are right, gladdening the heart. The LORD's commands are pure, giving light to the eyes. 8 The precepts of the LORD are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the LORD are radiant, giving light to the eyes.
9 Honoring the LORD is correct, lasting forever. The LORD's judgments are true. All of these are righteous! 9 The fear of the LORD is pure, enduring forever. The ordinances of the LORD are sure and altogether righteous.
10 They are more desirable than gold— than tons of pure gold!— and they are sweeter than honey— even dripping off the honeycomb! 10 They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the comb.
11 No doubt about it: your servant is enlightened by them; there is great reward in keeping them. 11 By them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward.
12 But can anyone know what they've accidentally done wrong? Clear me of any unknown sin 12 Who can discern his errors? Forgive my hidden faults.
13 and save your servant from willful sins. Don't let them rule me. Then I'll be completely blameless; I'll be innocent of great wrongdoing. 13 Keep your servant also from willful sins; may they not rule over me. Then will I be blameless, innocent of great transgression.
14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be pleasing to you, LORD, my rock and my redeemer. 14 May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.
