Psalms 19 (asv)

(Online: ASV WEB)

For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.

19:1The heavens declare the glory of God;

And the firmament showeth his handiwork.

19:2Day unto day uttereth speech,

And night unto night showeth knowledge.

19:3There is no speech nor language;

Their voice is not heard.

19:4Their 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,

19:5Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,

And rejoiceth as a strong man to run his course.

19:6His 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.

19:7The law of Jehovah is perfect, restoring the soul:

The testimony of Jehovah is sure, making wise the simple.

19:8The precepts of Jehovah are right, rejoicing the heart:

The commandment of Jehovah is pure, enlightening the eyes.

19:9The fear of Jehovah is clean, enduring for ever:

The ordinances of Jehovah are true, and righteous altogether.

19:10More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold;

Sweeter also than honey and the droppings of the honeycomb.

19:11Moreover by them is thy servant warned:

In keeping them there is great reward.

19:12Who can discern his errors?

Clear thou me from hidden faults.

19:13Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins;

Let them not have dominion over me:

Then shall I be upright,

And I shall be clear from great transgression.

19:14Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart

Be acceptable in thy sight,

O Jehovah, my rock, and my redeemer.
