Psalm 19

Psalms: 19

The Lord, the Sun of Righteousness.  Psalm 19(v18)

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.

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 them he has set a tent for the sun,
5which comes forth like a bridegroom leaving his chamber,
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 there is nothing hid from its heat.

7The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul;
the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple;
8the precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart;
the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes;
9the fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever;
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 thy servant warned;
in keeping them there is great reward.
12But who can discern his errors?
Clear thou me from hidden faults.
13Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins;
let them not 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 in thy sight, O LORD,
my rock and my redeemer.
