19 The heavens tell the glory of God. And the skies announce what his hands have made. 2 Day after day they tell the story. Night after night they tell it again. 3 They have no speech or words. They don’t make any sound to be heard. 4 But their message goes out through all the world. It goes everywhere on earth. The sky is like a home for the sun. 5 The sun comes out like a bridegroom from his bedroom. It rejoices like an athlete eager to run a race. 6 The sun rises at one end of the sky, and it follows its path to the other end. Nothing hides from its heat.
7 The Lord’s teachings are perfect. They give new strength. The Lord’s rules can be trusted. They make plain people wise. 8 The Lord’s orders are right. They make people happy. The Lord’s commands are pure. They light up the way. 9 It is good to respect the Lord. That respect will last forever. The Lord’s judgments are true. They are completely right. 10 They are worth more than gold, even the purest gold. They are sweeter than honey, even the finest honey. 11 They tell your servant what to do. Keeping them brings great reward.
12 No one can see all his own mistakes. Forgive me for my secret sins. 13 Keep me from the sins that I want to do. Don’t let them rule me. Then I can be pure and free from the greatest of sins.
14 I hope my words and thoughts please you. Lord, you are my Rock, the one who saves me.
