19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God.
The expanse shows his handiwork.
19:2 Day after day they pour forth speech,
and night after night they display knowledge.
19:3 There is no speech nor language,
where their voice is not heard.
19:4 Their voice has gone out through all the earth,
their words to the end of the world.
In them he has set a tent for the sun,
19:5 which is as a bridegroom coming out of his room,
like a strong man rejoicing to run his course.
19:6 His going forth is from the end of the heavens,
his circuit to its ends;
There is nothing hidden from its heat.
19:7 Yahweh’s law is perfect, restoring the soul.
Yahweh’s testimony is sure, making wise the simple.
19:8 Yahweh’s precepts are right, rejoicing the heart.
Yahweh’s commandment is pure, enlightening the eyes.
19:9 The fear of Yahweh is clean, enduring forever.
Yahweh’s ordinances are true, and righteous altogether.
19:10 More to be desired are they than gold, yes, than much fine gold;
sweeter also than honey and the extract of the honeycomb.
19:11 Moreover by them is your servant warned.
In keeping them there is great reward.
19:12 Who can discern his errors?
Forgive me from hidden errors.
19:13 Keep back your servant also from presumptuous sins.
Let them not have dominion over me.
Then I will be upright.
I will be blameless and innocent of great transgression.
19:14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
be acceptable in your sight,
Yahweh, my rock, and my redeemer.
