19 The heavens are declaring the glory of God, and their expanse shows the work of his hands. 2 Day after day they pour forth speech, night after night they reveal knowledge. 3 There is no speech nor are there words— their voice is not heard— 4 yet their message[a] goes out into all the world, and their words to the ends of the earth.
He has set up a tent for the sun in the heavens,[b] 5 which is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, or like a champion who rejoices at the beginning of a race. 6 Its circuit is from one end of the sky to the other, and nothing is hidden from its heat.
God’s Revelation in the Law
7 The Law of the Lord is perfect, restoring life. The testimony of the Lord is steadfast, making foolish people wise. 8 The precepts of the Lord are upright, making the heart rejoice. The commandment of the Lord is pure, giving light to the eyes. 9 The fear of the Lord is clean, standing forever. The judgments of the Lord are true; they are altogether righteous. 10 They are more desirable than gold, even much fine gold. They are sweeter than honey, even the drippings from a honeycomb. 11 Moreover your servant is warned by them; and there is great reward in keeping them.
12 Who can detect his own[c] mistake? Cleanse me from hidden sin. 13 Preserve your servant from arrogant people;[d] do not let them rule over me. Then I will be upright[e] and acquitted of great wickedness. 14 May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.
