Bible: Psalms 19
Psalm 19 1
19:1 For the music director; a psalm of David.
The heavens declare the glory of God; 2
the sky displays his handiwork. 3
19:2 Day after day it speaks out; 4
night after night it reveals his greatness. 5
19:3 There is no actual speech or word,
nor is its 6 voice literally heard.
19:6 It emerges from the distant horizon, 18
and goes from one end of the sky to the other; 19
nothing can escape 20 its heat.
19:7 The law of the
and preserves one’s life. 21
and impart wisdom to the inexperienced. 24
and make one joyful. 26
and give insight for life. 29
19:9 The commands to fear the
and endure forever. 31
The judgments given by the
and absolutely just. 32
19:10 They are of greater value 33 than gold,
than even a great amount of pure gold;
they bring greater delight 34 than honey,
than even the sweetest honey from a honeycomb.
19:11 Yes, your servant finds moral guidance there; 35
those who obey them receive a rich reward. 36
19:12 Who can know all his errors? 37
Please do not punish me for sins I am unaware of. 38
19:13 Moreover, keep me from committing flagrant 39 sins;
do not allow such sins to control me. 40
Then I will be blameless,
and innocent of blatant 41 rebellion.
19:14 May my words and my thoughts
be acceptable in your sight, 42
