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.
