1 To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David. The heavens declare the glory of God; and the expanse proclaims His handiwork.
2 Day to day pours forth speech, and night to night reveals knowledge.
3 [There is] no speech nor [are] there words; their voice is not heard.
4 Their line 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 and he comes forth as a bridegroom from his canopy; he rejoices as a strong man to run a race,
6 going forth from the end of the heavens, and its course [is] to their ends. And there is nothing hid from its heat.
7 The law of the LORD [is] perfect, converting the soul; the testimony of the LORD [is] sure, making the simple wise.
8 The statutes of the LORD [are] right, rejoicing the heart; the commandments of the LORD [are] pure, giving light to 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 than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
11 And Your servant is warned by them; in keeping them there [is] great reward.
12 Who can understand [his] errors? Oh make me pure from secret [faults] ;
13 and keep Your servant back from presumptuous [sins]; do not let them rule over me; then I shall be upright, and I shall be innocent of great transgression.
14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in Your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.
