Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 To the Overseer. -- A Psalm of David. The heavens [are] recounting the honour of God, And the work of His hands The expanse [is] declaring. 1 The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
2 Day to day uttereth speech, And night to night sheweth knowledge. 2 Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge.
3 There is no speech, and there are no words. Their voice hath not been heard. 3 There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard.
4 Into all the earth hath their line gone forth, And to the end of the world their sayings, For the sun He placed a tent in them, 4 Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world. In the heavens he has pitched a tent for the sun,
5 And he, as a bridegroom, goeth out from his covering, He rejoiceth as a mighty one To run the path. 5 which is like a bridegroom coming forth from his pavilion, like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
6 From the end of the heavens [is] his going out, And his revolution [is] unto their ends, And nothing is hid from his heat. 6 It rises at one end of the heavens and makes its circuit to the other; nothing is hidden from its heat.
7 The law of Jehovah [is] perfect, refreshing the soul, The testimonies of Jehovah [are] stedfast, Making wise the simple, 7 The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul. The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple.
8 The precepts of Jehovah [are] upright, Rejoicing the heart, The command of Jehovah [is] pure, enlightening 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 The fear of Jehovah [is] clean, standing to the age, The judgments of Jehovah [are] true, They have been righteous -- together. 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, Yea, than much fine gold; and sweeter than honey, Even liquid honey of the comb. 10 They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the comb.
11 Also -- Thy servant is warned by them, `In keeping them [is] a great reward.' 11 By them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward.
12 Errors! who doth understand? From hidden ones declare me innocent, 12 Who can discern his errors? Forgive my hidden faults.
13 Also -- from presumptuous ones keep back Thy servant, Let them not rule over me, Then am I perfect, And declared innocent of much transgression, 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 sayings of my mouth, And the meditation of my heart, Be for a pleasing thing before Thee, O Jehovah, 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.
