¶ To the Chanter, a Psalm of David.The very heavens declare the glory of God, and the very firmament sheweth his handiwork. One day telleth another, and one night certifieth another. There is neither speech nor language, but their voices are heard among them. Their sound is gone out into all lands, and their words in to the ends of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the Sone, which cometh forth as a bridegroom out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a giant to run his course. It goeth forth from the one end of the heaven, and runneth about unto the same end again, and there may no man hide himself from the heat thereof.
¶ The law of the LORD is a perfect law, it quickeneth the soul. The testimony of the LORD is true, and giveth wisdom even unto babes. The statutes of the LORD are right, and rejoice the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, and giveth light unto the eyes. The fear of the LORD is clean, and endureth for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. More pleasant are they than gold, yea then much fine gold: sweeter then honey and the honeycomb. These thy servant keepeth, and for keeping of them there is great reward. Who can tell, how oft he offendeth? Oh cleanse thou me from my secret faults. Keep thy servant also from presumptuous sins, lest they get dominion over me: so shall I be undefiled and innocent from the great offense. Yea the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart shall be acceptable unto thee, O LORD, my helper and my redeemer.
