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.
