The heavens are proclaiming the esteem of El; And the expanse is declaring the work of His hand.
Day to day pours forth speech, And night to night reveals knowledge.
There is no speech, and there are no words, Their voice is not heard.
Their line has gone out through all the earth, And their words to the end of the world. In them He set up a tent for the sun,
And it is like a bridegroom coming out of his room, It rejoices like a strong man to run the path.
Its rising is from one end of the heavens, And its circuit to the other end; And naught is hidden from its heat.
The Torah of YHWH is perfect, bringing back the being; The witness of YHWH is trustworthy, making wise the simple;
The orders of YHWH are straight, rejoicing the heart; The command of YHWH is clear, enlightening the eyes;
The fear of YHWH is clean, standing forever; The right-rulings of YHWH are true, They are righteous altogether,
More desirable than gold, Than much fine gold; And sweeter than honey and the honeycomb.
Also, Your servant is warned by them, In guarding them there is great reward.
Who discerns mistakes? Declare me innocent from those that are secret,
Also keep Your servant back from presumptuous ones, Do not let them rule over me. Then shall I be perfect, and innocent of great transgression.
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be pleasing before You, O YHWH, my rock and my redeemer.
