Psalms - Chapter 19 | American Standard Version

  • 1. For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David. The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament showeth his handiwork.
  • 2. Day unto day uttereth speech, And night unto night showeth knowledge.
  • 3. There is no speech nor language; Their voice is not heard.
  • 4. Their line is gone out through all the earth, And their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,
  • 5. Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, And rejoiceth as a strong man to run his course.
  • 6. His going forth is from the end of the heavens, And his circuit unto the ends of it; And there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.
  • 7. The law of Jehovah is perfect, restoring the soul: The testimony of Jehovah is sure, making wise the simple.
  • 8. The precepts of Jehovah are right, rejoicing the heart: The commandment of Jehovah is pure, enlightening the eyes.
  • 9. The fear of Jehovah is clean, enduring for ever: The ordinances of Jehovah are true, {cf15i and} righteous altogether.
  • 10. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold; Sweeter also than honey and the droppings of the honeycomb.
  • 11. Moreover by them is thy servant warned: In keeping them there is great reward.
  • 12. Who can discern {cf15i his} errors? Clear thou me from hidden {cf15i faults}.
  • 13. Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous {cf15i sins}; Let them not have dominion over me: Then shall I be upright, And I shall be clear from great transgression.
  • 14. Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in thy sight, O Jehovah, my rock, and my redeemer.
