To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.
1 The aheavens declare the glory of God;
And night unto night reveals knowledge.
Where their voice is not heard.
And their words to the end of the world.
In them He has set a 4tabernacle for the sun,
dAnd rejoices like a strong man to run its race.
And its circuit to the other end;
And there is nothing hidden from its heat.
The testimony of the Lord is sure, making fwise the simple;
The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes;
The judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.
10 More to be desired are they than ggold,
Yea, than much fine gold;
Sweeter also than honey and the 6honeycomb.
And in keeping them there is great reward.
hCleanse me from secret faults.
13 Keep back Your servant also from ipresumptuous sins;
Let them not have jdominion over me.
Then I shall be blameless,
And I shall be innocent of 7great transgression.
14 kLet the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
Be acceptable in Your sight,
expanse of heaven
the work of His hands
