Bible: Ps 19:4-11

19:4 Yet its voice 1  echoes 2  throughout the earth;

its 3  words carry 4  to the distant horizon. 5 

In the sky 6  he has pitched a tent for the sun. 7 

19:5 Like a bridegroom it emerges 8  from its chamber; 9 

like a strong man it enjoys 10  running its course. 11 

19:6 It emerges from the distant horizon, 12 

and goes from one end of the sky to the other; 13 

nothing can escape 14  its heat.

19:7 The law of the Lord is perfect

and preserves one’s life. 15 

The rules set down by the Lord 16  are reliable 17 

and impart wisdom to the inexperienced. 18 

19:8 The Lord’s precepts are fair 19 

and make one joyful. 20 

The Lord’s commands 21  are pure 22 

and give insight for life. 23 

19:9 The commands to fear the Lord are right 24 

and endure forever. 25 

The judgments given by the Lord are trustworthy

and absolutely just. 26 

19:10 They are of greater value 27  than gold,

than even a great amount of pure gold;

they bring greater delight 28  than honey,

than even the sweetest honey from a honeycomb.

19:11 Yes, your servant finds moral guidance there; 29 

those who obey them receive a rich reward. 30
