Psalm 19
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1TO THE OVERSEER. A PSALM OF DAVID. The heavens [are] recounting the glory of God, || And the expanse [is] declaring the work of His hands.

2Day to day utters speech, || And night to night shows knowledge.

3There is no speech, and there are no words. Their voice has not been heard.

4Their line has gone forth into all the earth, || And their sayings to the end of the world, || In them He placed a tent for the sun,

5And he, as a bridegroom, goes out from his covering, || He rejoices as a mighty one || To run the path.

6From the end of the heavens [is] his going out, || And his revolution [is] to their ends, || And nothing is hid from his heat.

7The law of YHWH [is] perfect, refreshing the soul, || The testimonies of YHWH [are] steadfast, || Making the simple wise,

8The precepts of YHWH [are] upright, || Rejoicing the heart, || The command of YHWH [is] pure, enlightening the eyes,

9The fear of YHWH [is] clean, standing for all time, || The judgments of YHWH [are] true, || They have been righteous—together.

10They are more desirable than gold, || Indeed, than much fine gold; and sweeter than honey, || Even liquid honey of the comb.

11Also—Your servant is warned by them, “In keeping them [is] a great reward.”

12[His] errors—who understands? Declare me innocent from hidden ones,

13Also—keep back Your servant from presumptuous ones, || Do not let them rule over me, || Then I am perfect, || And declared innocent of much transgression.

14Let the sayings of my mouth, || And the meditation of my heart, || Be for a pleasing thing before You, O YHWH, my rock, and my redeemer!
