The Book of Psalms
The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handiwork.
2 Day unto day poureth forth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.
3 They have no speech nor language; their voice is not heard.
4 Their sound is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,
5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run its course.
6 Its rising is from the end of the heavens, and its circuit unto the ends thereof: and there is nothing hid from its heat.
7 The law of the LORD is perfect, restoring the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.
8 The precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.
9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.
10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey, than honey from the comb.
11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.
12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.
13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent of great transgression.
14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my rock, and my redeemer.
