Psalm 19Lexham English Bible (LEB)
Yahweh’s Creation and Law
For the music director. A psalm of David.
19 The heavens are telling the glory of God,
and the firmament proclaims the work of his hands.
2 Every day they pour forth speech,
and every night they tell knowledge.
3 There is no speech and there are no words;
their sound is inaudible.
4 Yet in all the world their line goes out,
and their words to the end of the world.
In them he has pitched a tent for the sun,
5 and it is like a bridegroom
who comes out of his bridal chamber.
It is glad like a strong man
to run its course.
6 Its rising is from one end of the heavens
and its circuit to the other end of them;
and nothing is hidden from its heat.
7 The law of Yahweh is perfect, reviving life.
The testimony of Yahweh is firm, making wise the simple.
8 The precepts of Yahweh are right, making the heart rejoice.
The command of Yahweh is pure, enlightening the eyes.
9 The fear of Yahweh is pure, enduring forever.
The ordinances of Yahweh are true; they are righteous altogether,
10 more desirable than gold, even much fine gold;
and sweeter than honey, even honey in the comb.
11 Moreover, your servant is warned by them;
in keeping them is great reward.
12 Who can perceive his errors?
Acquit me from hidden faults.
13 Also, keep back your servant from arrogant sins;
let them not rule over me.
Then I shall be blameless,
and I shall be innocent of great transgression.
14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
be acceptable in your presence,
O Yahweh, my rock and my redeemer.
