The Perfect Revelation of the Lord
To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.
1The #Is. 40:22; (Rom. 1:19, 20)heavens declare the glory of God;
And the #Gen. 1:6, 7firmament shows His handiwork.
2Day unto day utters speech,
And night unto night reveals knowledge.
3There is no speech nor language
Where their voice is not heard.
4#Rom. 10:18Their line has gone out through all the earth,
And their words to the end of the world.
In them He has set a tabernacle for the sun,
5Which is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,
#Eccl. 1:5And rejoices like a strong man to run its race.
6Its rising is from one end of heaven,
And its circuit to the other end;
And there is nothing hidden from its heat.
7#Ps. 111:7; (Rom. 7:12)The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul;
The testimony of the Lord is sure, making #Ps. 119:130wise the simple;
8The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart;
The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes;
9The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever;
The judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.
10More to be desired are they than #Ps. 119:72, 127; Prov. 8:10, 11, 19gold,
Yea, than much fine gold;
Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
11Moreover by them Your servant is warned,
And in keeping them there is great reward.
12Who can understand his errors?
#(Ps. 51:1, 2)Cleanse me from secret faults.
13Keep back Your servant also from #Num. 15:30presumptuous sins;
Let them not have #Ps. 119:133; (Rom. 6:12–14)dominion over me.
Then I shall be blameless,
And I shall be innocent of great transgression.
14#Ps. 51:15Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
Be acceptable in Your sight,
O Lord, my strength and my #Ps. 31:5; Is. 47:4Redeemer.
