Psalms - Chapter 19 | New King James Version

  • 1. To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David. The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork.
  • 2. Day unto day utters speech, And night unto night reveals knowledge.
  • 3. There is no speech nor language Where their voice is not heard.
  • 4. Their line {cf2super [15]} has gone out through all the earth, And their words to the end of the world. In them He has set a tabernacle for the sun,
  • 5. Which is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, And rejoices like a strong man to run its race.
  • 6. Its rising is from one end of heaven, And its circuit to the other end; And there is nothing hidden from its heat.
  • 7. The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul; The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple;
  • 8. The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes;
  • 9. The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; The judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.
  • 10. More to be desired are they than gold, Yea, than much fine gold; Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
  • 11. Moreover by them Your servant is warned, And in keeping them there is great reward.
  • 12. Who can understand his errors? Cleanse me from secret faults.
  • 13. Keep back Your servant also from presumptuous sins; Let them not have dominion over me. Then I shall be blameless, And I shall be 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 strength and my Redeemer.
