The heavens tell of the glory of God.
The skies display his
marvelous craftsmanship.
Day after day they continue to speak;
night after night they make him known.

They speak without a sound or a word;
their voice is silent in the skies;
yet their message has gone
out to all the earth,
and their words to all the world.

The sun lives in the heavens
where God placed it.
It bursts forth like a radiant
bridegroom after his wedding,

It rejoices like a great athlete
eager to run the race.
The sun rises at one end of the heavens
and follows its course to the other end.
Nothing can hide from its heat.

The law of the Lord is perfect
reviving the soul.
The decrees of the Lord are trustworthy,
making wise the simple.

The commandments of the Lord are right,
bringing joy to the heart.
The commands of the Lord are clear,
giving insight to life.

Reverence for the Lord is pure,
lasting forever.
The laws of the Lord are true;
each one is fair.

They are more desirable than gold,
even the finest gold.
They are sweeter than honey,
even honey dripping from the comb.

They are a warning to those
who hear them;
there is a great reward for
those who obey them.

Psalm 19: 1-11 (NLT)
A Psalm of David
