1: The heavens declare the glory of God. The expanse shows his handiwork.
2: Day after day they pour forth speech, and night after night they display knowledge.
3: There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
4: Their voice has gone out through all the earth, their words to the end of the world. In them he has set a tent for the sun,
5: which is as a bridegroom coming out of his room, like a strong man rejoicing to run his course.
6: His going forth is from the end of the heavens, his circuit to its ends; There is nothing hidden from its heat.
7: Yahweh's law is perfect, restoring the soul. Yahweh's testimony is sure, making wise the simple.
8: Yahweh's precepts are right, rejoicing the heart. Yahweh's commandment is pure, enlightening the eyes.
9: The fear of Yahweh is clean, enduring forever. Yahweh's ordinances are true, and righteous altogether.
10: More to be desired are they than gold, yes, than much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and the extract of the honeycomb.
11: Moreover by them is your servant warned. In keeping them there is great reward.
12: Who can discern his errors? Forgive me from hidden errors.
13: Keep back your servant also from presumptuous sins. Let them not have dominion over me. Then I will be upright. I will be blameless and innocent of great transgression.
14: Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, Yahweh, my rock, and my redeemer. Psalm 20 For the Chief Musician. A Psalm by David.
