Psalm 18

Unto the end: A Psalm of David.

The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament sheweth His handywork.
Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.
There is no speech nor language, where their voices are not heard.
Their sound is gone out into all the earth, and their words to the ends of the world.
He hath set His tabernacle in the sun, and as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,

He will rejoice as a giant to run his course. His going forth is from the end of heaven, and his circuit unto the end of it; and there is none that shall hide himself from the heat thereof.
The law of the Lord is blameless, converting souls; the testimony of the Lord is sure, giving wisdom to infants.
The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is bright, enlighteng the eyes.
The fear of the Lord is pure, enduring for ever and ever; the judgments of the Lord are true, justified altogether.
More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much precious stone; sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
For Thy servant keepeth them; in keeping of them there is great reward.
Who will understand his transgressions? Cleanse Thou me from my secret faults, and from those of others spare Thy servant.
If they gain not dominion over me, then shall I be blameless, and cleansed of great sin.
And the words of my mouth shall be such as please, and the meditation of my heart shall be alway in Thy sight, O Lord, my helper, and my redeemer.
