The Bible in Basic English
Psalms, Chapter 19

   1: The heavens are sounding the glory of God; the arch of the sky makes clear the work of his hands.
   2: Day after day it sends out its word, and night after night it gives knowledge.
   3: There are no words or language; their voice makes no sound.
   4: Their line has gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them has he put a tent for the sun,
   5: Who is like a newly married man coming from his bride-tent, and is glad like a strong runner starting on his way.
   6: His going out is from the end of the heaven, and his circle to the ends of it; there is nothing which is not open to his heat.
   7: The law of the Lord is good, giving new life to the soul: the witness of the Lord is certain, giving wisdom to the foolish.
   8: The orders of the Lord are right, making glad the heart: the rule of the Lord is holy, giving light to the eyes.
   9: The fear of the Lord is clean, and has no end; the decisions of the Lord are true and full of righteousness.
   10: More to be desired are they than gold, even than much shining gold; sweeter than the dropping honey.
   11: By them is your servant made conscious of danger, and in keeping them there is great reward.
   12: Who has full knowledge of his errors? make me clean from secret evil.
   13: Keep your servant back from sins of pride; let them not have rule over me: then will I be upright and free from great sin.
   14: Let the words of my mouth and the thoughts of my heart be pleasing in your eyes, O Lord, my strength and my salvation.
