night after night they reveal knowledge.x
no sound is heard from them.
4 Yet their voiceb goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.y
like a championd rejoicing to run his course.
6 It rises at one end of the heavense
and makes its circuit to the other;f
nothing is deprived of its warmth.
refreshing the soul.i
The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy,j
making wise the simple.k
8 The precepts of the Lord are right,l
giving joym to the heart.
The commands of the Lord are radiant,
giving light to the eyes.n
9 The fear of the Lordo is pure,
The decrees of the Lord are firm,
and all of them are righteous.p
10 They are more precious than gold,q
than much pure gold;
they are sweeter than honey,r
than honey from the honeycomb.s
in keeping them there is great reward.
