God's Glory in the Heavens and in the Law

1For the leader. A psalm of David.

I

2The heavens declare the glory of God; the sky proclaims its builder's craft. x Pss 8, 1; 50, 6; 97, 6 . 3One day to the next conveys that message; one night to the next imparts that knowledge. 4There is no word or sound;* no voice is heard; 15Yet their report goes forth through all the earth, their message, to the ends of the world. God has pitched there a tent for the sun;* 6it comes forth like a bridegroom from his chamber, and like an athlete joyfully runs its course. 7From one end of the heavens it comes forth; its course runs through to the other; nothing escapes its heat.

II

8The law of the LORD is perfect, refreshing the soul. The decree of the LORD is trustworthy, giving wisdom to the simple. y Pss 12, 7; 12, 119 . 9The precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart. The command of the LORD is clear, enlightening the eye. 10The fear of the LORD is pure, enduring forever. The statutes of the LORD are true, all of them just; 11More desirable than gold, than a hoard of purest gold, Sweeter also than honey or drippings from the comb. z Sir 24, 19 . 12By them your servant is instructed;* obeying them brings much reward.

III

13Who can detect heedless failings? Cleanse me from my unknown faults. 14But from willful sins keep your servant; let them never control me. Then shall I be blameless, innocent of grave sin. 15Let the words of my mouth meet with your favor, keep the thoughts of my heart before you, LORD, my rock and my redeemer.

Notes:

x: Pss 8, 1; 50, 6; 97, 6 .

y: Pss 12, 7; 12, 119 .
