To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.
1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.
3 no speech nor language, 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 as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.
6 His going forth 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 perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD sure, making wise the simple.
8 The statutes of the LORD right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD pure, enlightening the eyes.
9 The fear of the LORD clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD true righteous altogether.
10 More to be desired than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: in keeping of them great reward.
12 Who can understand errors? cleanse thou me from secret .
13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous ; 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.
