Psalms Chapter 19 – The creation showeth God’s glory — Prayer for grace. (To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.)

1 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 No speech nor language can be, if 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 a race.


6 His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it; and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.


7 The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.


8 The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening 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 are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.


11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned; and in keeping of them there is great reward.


12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.


13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous acts; let them not have dominion over me; then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.


14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.
