To the director. A melody of David.
2 Day after day their speech bubbles forth,
And night after night they reveal knowledge.
3 There is no speech, and there are no words;
Their voice is not heard.
4 But into all the earth their sound* has gone out,
In the heavens he has pitched a tent for the sun;
5 It is like a bridegroom emerging from the bridal chamber;
It rejoices like a mighty man running his course.
6 It emerges from one end of the heavens,
And it circles to their other end;+
And nothing is concealed from its heat.
7 The law of Jehovah is perfect,+ restoring strength.*+
The reminder of Jehovah is trustworthy,+ making the inexperienced one wise.+
8 The orders from Jehovah are righteous, causing the heart to rejoice;+
The commandment of Jehovah is clean, making the eyes shine.+
9 The fear of Jehovah+ is pure, lasting forever.
The judgments of Jehovah are true, altogether righteous.+
10 They are more desirable than gold,
And sweeter than honey,+ the honey that drips from the combs.
Pronounce me innocent from sins I am unaware of.
