1: (To the chief Musician. A Psalm of David.) The heavens declare the glory of God; and the expanse sheweth the work of his hands. 2: Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. 3: There is no speech and there are no words, yet their voice is heard. 4: Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their language to the extremity of the world. In them hath he set a tent for the sun, 5: And he is as a bridegroom going forth from his chamber; he rejoiceth as a strong man to run the race. 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 judgments of Jehovah are truth, they are righteous altogether: 10: They are more precious than gold, yea, than much fine gold; and sweeter than honey and the dropping of the honeycomb. 11: Moreover, by them is thy servant enlightened; in keeping them there is great reward. 12: Who understandeth [his] errors? Purify me from secret [faults]. 13: Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous [sins]; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be perfect, and I shall be innocent 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.
