Psalms 19

Listen to Psalms 19
1 1The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above[a] proclaims his handiwork.
2 Day to day pours out speech, and night to night reveals knowledge.
3 There is no speech, nor are there words, whose voice is not heard.
4 2Their 3voice[b] goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them he has set a tent for 4the sun,
5 5which comes out like 6a bridegroom leaving his chamber, and, like a strong man, runs its course with joy.
6 Its rising is from the end of the heavens, and its circuit to the end of them, and there is nothing hidden from its heat.
7 7The law of the LORD is perfect,[c] 8reviving the soul; 9the testimony of the LORD is 10sure, 11making wise 12the simple;
8 13the precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the LORD is 14pure, 15enlightening the eyes;
9 the fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever; the rules[d] of the LORD are 16true, and righteous altogether.
10 More to be desired are they than 17gold, even much 18fine gold; 19sweeter also than honey and drippings of 20the honeycomb.
11 Moreover, by them is your servant warned; 21in keeping them there is great reward.
12 22Who can discern his errors? 23Declare me innocent from 24hidden faults.
13 25Keep back your servant also from 26presumptuous sins; let them not have 27dominion over me! Then I shall be blameless, and innocent of great transgression.
14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O LORD, my 28rock and my 29redeemer.
