|The Works and the Word of God|
|For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.|
| ||THE HEAVENS declare the glory of God;|
And the firmament showeth his handiwork.
| ||Day unto day uttereth speech,|
And night unto night showeth knowledge.
| ||There is no speech nor language;|
Their voice is not heard.
| ||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 1 for the sun,
| ||Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,|
And rejoiceth as a strong man to run his course.
| ||His 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.
| ||The law of Jehovah is perfect, restoring the soul:|
The testimony of Jehovah is sure, making wise the simple.
| ||The precepts of Jehovah are right, rejoicing the heart:|
The commandment of Jehovah is pure, enlightening the eyes.
| ||The fear of Jehovah is clean, enduring for ever:|
The ordinances of Jehovah are true, and righteous altogether.
| ||More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold;|
Sweeter also than honey and the droppings of the honeycomb.
| ||Moreover by them is thy servant warned:|
In keeping them there is great reward.
| ||Who can discern his errors?|
Clear thou me from hidden faults.
| ||Keep back thy servant also from 2 presumptuous sins;|
Let them not have dominion over me:
Then shall I be upright,
And I shall be clear from great transgression.
| ||Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart|
Be acceptable in thy sight,
O Jehovah, my rock, and my redeemer.
