Psalm 19

1  The heavens are telling the glory of God 
   and the firmament proclaims his handiwork.
2  One day pours out its song to another 
   and one night unfolds knowledge to another.
3  They have neither speech nor language 
   and their voices are not heard,
4  Yet their sound has gone out into all lands 
   and their words to the ends of the world.
5  In them has he set a tabernacle for the sun, 
   that comes forth as a bridegroom out of his chamber
      and rejoices as a champion to run his course.
6  It goes forth from the end of the heavens
      and runs to the very end again, 
   and there is nothing hidden from its heat.
7  The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul; 
   the testimony of the Lord is sure
      and gives wisdom to the simple.
8  The statutes of the Lord are right and rejoice the heart; 
   the commandment of the Lord is pure
      and gives light to the eyes.
9  The fear of the Lord is clean and endures for ever; 
   the judgements of the Lord are true
      and righteous altogether.
10  More to be desired are they than gold,
      more than much fine gold, 
   sweeter also than honey,
      dripping from the honeycomb.
11  By them also is your servant taught 
   and in keeping them there is great reward.
12  Who can tell how often they offend? 
   O cleanse me from my secret faults!
13  Keep your servant also from presumptuous sins
      lest they get dominion over me; 
   so shall I be undefiled,
      and innocent of great offence.
14  Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
      be acceptable in your sight, 
   O Lord, my strength and my redeemer.

8 You brought a vine out of Egypt;
   you drove out the nations and planted it.
9 You cleared the ground for it;
   it took deep root and filled the land.
10 The mountains were covered with its shade,
   the mighty cedars with its branches;
11 it sent out its branches to the sea,
   and its shoots to the River.
12 Why then have you broken down its walls,
   so that all who pass along the way pluck its fruit?
13 The boar from the forest ravages it,
   and all that move in the field feed on it.


14 Turn again, O God of hosts;
   look down from heaven, and see;
have regard for this vine,
15   the stock that your right hand planted.*
16 They have burned it with fire, they have cut it down;*
   may they perish at the rebuke of your countenance.
