Chapter 18

1


 

  Unto the end. A psalm for David.  

 

 


2


 

  The heavens shew forth the glory of God, and the firmament declareth the work of his hands.  

 

 


3


 

  Day to day uttereth speech, and night to night sheweth knowledge.  

 

 


4


 

  There are no speeches nor languages, where their voices are not heard.  

 

 


5


 

  Their sound hath gone forth into all the earth: and their words unto the ends of the world.  

 

 


6


 

  He hath set his tabernacle in the sun: and he, as a bridegroom coming out of his bride chamber, Hath rejoiced as a giant to run the way:  

 

 


7


 

  His going out is from the end of heaven, And his circuit even to the end thereof: and there is no one that can hide himself from his heat.  

 

 


8


 

  The law of the Lord is unspotted, converting souls: the testimony of the Lord is faithful, giving wisdom to little ones.  

 

 


9


 

  The justices of the Lord are right, rejoicing hearts: the commandment of the Lord is lightsome, enlightening the eyes.  

 

 


10


 

  The fear of the Lord is holy, enduring for ever and ever: the judgments of the Lord are true, justified in themselves.  

 

 


11


 

  More to be desired than gold and many precious stones: and sweeter than honey and the honeycomb.  

 

 


12


 

  For thy servant keepeth them, and in keeping them there is a great reward.  

 

 


13


 

  Who can understand sins? from my secret ones cleanse me, O Lord:  

 

 


14


 

  and from those of others spare thy servant. If they shall have no dominion over me, then shall I be without spot: and I shall be cleansed from the greatest sin.  

 

 


15


 

  And the words of my mouth shall be such as may please: and the meditation of my heart always in thy sight. O Lord, my helper, and my redeemer.
