Psalm 19 (New International Version)

View In My Bible

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

1 The heavens1 declare2 the glory of God;3 the skies4 proclaim the work of his hands.5 2 Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge.6 3 There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard.a 4 Their voiceb goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.7 In the heavens he has pitched a tent8 for the sun,9 5 which is like a bridegroom10 coming forth from his pavilion,11 like a champion12 rejoicing to run his course. 6 It rises at one end of the heavens13 and makes its circuit to the other;14 nothing is hidden from its heat. 7 The law of the LORD15 is perfect,16 reviving the soul.17 The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy,18 making wise the simple.19 8 The precepts of the LORD are right,20 giving joy21 to the heart. The commands of the LORD are radiant, giving light to the eyes.22 9 The fear of the LORD23 is pure, enduring forever. The ordinances of the LORD are sure and altogether righteous.24 10 They are more precious than gold,25 than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey,26 than honey from the comb.27 11 By them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward. 12 Who can discern his errors? Forgive my hidden faults.28 13 Keep your servant also from willful sins;29 may they not rule over me.30 Then will I be blameless,31 innocent of great transgression. 14 May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing32 in your sight, O LORD, my Rock33 and my Redeemer.34
