1The heavens are telling the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims his handiwork.2Day to day pours forth speech, and night to night declares knowledge.3There is no speech, nor are there words; their voice is not heard;4yet their voice goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In the heavens he has set a tent for the sun,5which comes out like a bridegroom from his wedding canopy, and like a strong man runs its course with joy.6Its rising is from the end of the heavens, and its circuit to the end of them; and nothing is hid from its heat.7The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul; the decrees of the Lord are sure, making wise the simple;8the precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is clear, enlightening the eyes;9the fear of the Lord is pure, enduring forever; the ordinances of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.10More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey, and drippings of the honeycomb.11Moreover by them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward.12But who can detect their errors? Clear me from hidden faults.13Keep back your servant also from the insolent; do not let them have dominion over me. Then I shall be blameless, and innocent of great transgression.14Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.
1The earth is the Lord's and all that is in it, the world, and those who live in it;2for he has founded it on the seas, and established it on the rivers.3Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place?4Those who have clean hands and pure hearts, who do not lift up their souls to what is false, and do not swear deceitfully.5They will receive blessing from the Lord, and vindication from the God of their salvation.6Such is the company of those who seek him, who seek the face of the God of Jacob. (Selah)7Lift up your heads, O gates! and be lifted up, O ancient doors! that the King of glory may come in.8Who is the King of glory? The Lord, strong and mighty, the Lord, mighty in battle.9Lift up your heads, O gates! and be lifted up, O ancient doors! that the King of glory may come in.10Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory. (Selah)
1Ascribe to the Lord, O heavenly beings, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.2Ascribe to the Lord the glory of his name; worship the Lord in holy splendor.3The voice of the Lord is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, the Lord, over mighty waters.4The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is full of majesty.5The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars; the Lord breaks the cedars of Lebanon.6He makes Lebanon skip like a calf, and Sirion like a young wild ox.7The voice of the Lord flashes forth flames of fire.8The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness; the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.9The voice of the Lord causes the oaks to whirl, and strips the forest bare; and in his temple all say, "Glory!"10The Lord sits enthroned over the flood; the Lord sits enthroned as king forever.11May the Lord give strength to his people! May the Lord bless his people with peace!
