The heavens declare the glory of God,
and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.

Day to day pours out speech,
and night to night reveals knowledge.
There is no speech, nor are there words,
whose voice is not heard.
Their voice goes out through all the earth,
and their words to the end of the world.

In them he has set a tent for the sun,
which comes out like a bridegroom leaving his chamber,
and, like a strong man, runs its course with JOY.

Its rising is from the end of the heavens,
and its circuit to the end of them,
and there is nothing hidden from its heat.

The law of the LORD is {perfect},
reviving the soul;
the testimony of the LORD is {sure},
making wise the simple;
the precepts of the LORD are {right},
rejoicing the heart;
the commandment of the LORD is {pure},
enlightening the eyes;
the fear of the LORD is {clean},
enduring forever;
the rules of the LORD are {true},
and righteous altogether.

More to be desired are they than gold,
even much fine gold;
sweeter also than honey
and drippings of the honeycomb. . .

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
be acceptable in your sight,
O LORD, my rock and my redeemer.

{ Psalm 19 }
