“Can you fathom(A) the mysteries of God?
    Can you probe the limits of the Almighty?
They are higher(B) than the heavens(C) above—what can you do?

Their measure(F) is longer than the earth
    and wider than the sea.(G)

Psalm 19[a]

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

The heavens(A) declare(B) the glory of God;(C)
    the skies(D) proclaim the work of his hands.(E)
Day after day they pour forth speech;
    night after night they reveal knowledge.(F)
They have no speech, they use no words;

Yet their voice[b] goes out into all the earth,
    their words to the ends of the world.(G)
In the heavens God has pitched a tent(H) for the sun.(I)
