Psalms 19-20

Chapter 19

Psalm 19[a]

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

1 The heavens(a) declare(b) the glory of God;(c)
     the skies(d) proclaim the work of his hands.(e)
2 Day after day they pour forth speech;
     night after night they reveal knowledge.(f)
3 They have no speech, they use no words;
     no sound is heard from them.
4 Yet their voice[b] goes out into all the earth,
     their words to the ends of the world.(g)
In the heavens God has pitched a tent(h) for the sun.(i)
5       It is like a bridegroom(j) coming out of his chamber,(k)
     like a champion(l) rejoicing to run his course.
6 It rises at one end of the heavens(m)
     and makes its circuit to the other;(n)
     nothing is deprived of its warmth.

7 The law of the Lord (o) is perfect,(p)
     refreshing the soul.(q)
The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy,(r)
     making wise the simple.(s)
8 The precepts of the Lord are right,(t)
     giving joy(u) to the heart.
The commands of the Lord are radiant,
     giving light to the eyes.(v)
9 The fear of the Lord (w) is pure,
     enduring forever.
The decrees of the Lord are firm,
     and all of them are righteous.(x)

10 They are more precious than gold,(y)
     than much pure gold;
they are sweeter than honey,(z)
     than honey from the honeycomb.(aa)
11 By them your servant is warned;
     in keeping them there is great reward.
12 But who can discern their own errors?
     Forgive my hidden faults.(ab)
13 Keep your servant also from willful sins;(ac)
     may they not rule over me.(ad)
Then I will be blameless,(ae)
     innocent of great transgression.

14 May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart
     be pleasing(af) in your sight,
     Lord , my Rock(ag) and my Redeemer.(ah)

Chapter 20

Psalm 20[a]

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

1 May the Lord answer you when you are in distress;(a)
     may the name of the God of Jacob(b) protect you.(c)
2 May he send you help(d) from the sanctuary(e)
     and grant you support(f) from Zion.(g)
3 May he remember(h) all your sacrifices
     and accept your burnt offerings.[b](i)
4 May he give you the desire of your heart(j)
     and make all your plans succeed.(k)
5 May we shout for joy(l) over your victory
     and lift up our banners(m) in the name of our God.

May the Lord grant all your requests.(n)

6 Now this I know:
     The Lord gives victory to his anointed.(o)
He answers him from his heavenly sanctuary
     with the victorious power of his right hand.(p)
7 Some trust in chariots(q) and some in horses,(r)
     but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.(s)
8 They are brought to their knees and fall,(t)
     but we rise up(u) and stand firm.(v)
9  Lord , give victory to the king!
     Answer us(w) when we call!
