The a heavens declare the glory of God;
And the b firmament 1 shows 2 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 c Their 3 line has gone out through all the earth,
And their words to the end of the world.
In them He has set a 4 tabernacle for the sun, 5 Which is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,
d 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.
e The law of the LORD is perfect, 5 converting the soul;
The testimony of the LORD is sure, making f 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 g gold,
Yea, than much fine gold;
Sweeter also than honey and the 6 honeycomb. 11 Moreover by them Your servant is warned,
And in keeping them there is great reward.
Who can understand his errors?
h Cleanse me from secret faults. 13 Keep back Your servant also from i presumptuous sins;
Let them not have j dominion over me.
Then I shall be blameless,
And I shall be innocent of 7 great transgression.
k Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
Be acceptable in Your sight,
O LORD, my 8 strength and my l Redeemer.
