19:1 For the Leader. A Psalm of David.

19:2 The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament showeth His handiwork;

19:3 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night revealeth knowledge;

19:4 There is no speech, there are no words, neither is their voice heard.

19:5 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath He set a tent for the sun,

19:6 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run his course.

19:7 His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it; and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.

19:8 The law of the Lord is perfect, restoring the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.

19:9 The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.

19:10 The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever; the ordinances of the Lord are true, they are righteous altogether;

19:11 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

19:12 Moreover by them is Thy servant warned; in keeping of them there is great reward.

19:13 Who can discern his errors? Clear Thou me from hidden faults.

19:14 Keep back Thy servant also from presumptuous sins, that they may not have dominion over me; then shall I be faultless, and I shall be clear from great transgression.

19:15 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable before Thee, O the Lord, my Rock, and my Redeemer.
