Psalm 19
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1TO THE OVERSEER. A PSALM OF DAVID. The heavens [are] recounting the glory of God, "" And the expanse [is] declaring the work of His hands.

2Day to day utters speech, "" And night to night shows knowledge.

3There is no speech, and there are no words. Their voice has not been heard.

4Their line has gone forth into all the earth, "" And their sayings to the end of the world, "" In them He placed a tent for the sun,

5And he, as a bridegroom, goes out from his covering, "" He rejoices as a mighty one "" To run the path.

6From the end of the heavens [is] his going out, "" And his revolution [is] to their ends, "" And nothing is hid from his heat.

7The law of YHWH [is] perfect, refreshing the soul, "" The testimonies of YHWH [are] steadfast, "" Making the simple wise,

8The precepts of YHWH [are] upright, "" Rejoicing the heart, "" The command of YHWH [is] pure, enlightening the eyes,

9The fear of YHWH [is] clean, standing for all time, "" The judgments of YHWH [are] true, "" They have been righteous—together.

10They are more desirable than gold, "" Indeed, than much fine gold; and sweeter than honey, "" Even liquid honey of the comb.

11Also—Your servant is warned by them, “In keeping them [is] a great reward.”

12[His] errors—who understands? Declare me innocent from hidden ones,

13Also—keep back Your servant from presumptuous ones, "" Do not let them rule over me, "" Then I am perfect, "" And declared innocent of much transgression.

14Let the sayings of my mouth, "" And the meditation of my heart, "" Be for a pleasing thing before You, "" O YHWH, my rock, and my redeemer!
