Psalm of the Day – December 27, 2019 (Psalm 19)

1   The heavens are telling the glory of God; 
          and the firmament proclaims his handiwork. 
2   Day to day pours forth speech, 
          and night to night declares knowledge. 
3   There is no speech, nor are there words; 
          their voice is not heard; 
4   yet their voice goes out through all the earth, 
          and their words to the end of the world.

     In the heavens he has set a tent for the sun, 
5   which comes out like a bridegroom from his wedding canopy, 
          and like a strong man runs its course with joy. 
6   Its rising is from the end of the heavens, 
          and its circuit to the end of them; 
          and nothing is hidden from its heat.

7   The law of the LORD is perfect, 
          reviving the soul; 
     the decrees of the LORD are sure, 
          making wise the simple; 
8   the precepts of the LORD are right, 
          rejoicing the heart; 
     the commandment of the LORD is clear, 
          enlightening the eyes; 
9   the fear of the LORD is pure, 
          enduring forever; 
     the ordinances of the LORD are true 
          and righteous altogether. 
10  More to be desired are they than gold, 
          even much fine gold; 
     sweeter also than honey, 
          and drippings of the honeycomb.

11  Moreover by them is your servant warned; 
          in keeping them there is great reward. 
12   But who can detect their errors? 
          Clear me from hidden faults. 
13  Keep back your servant also from the insolent; 
          do not let them have dominion over me. 
     Then I shall be blameless, 
          and innocent of great transgression.

14  Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart 
          be acceptable to you, 
          O LORD, my rock and my redeemer.
