19th Sunday after Pentecost
Psalm 19:1, 7-14
God’s Glory in Creation and the LawTo the leader.
A Psalm of David.
1 The heavens are telling the glory of God,
and the firmament[a] proclaims his handiwork.
7 The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul;the decrees of the Lord are sure, making wise the simple; 8 the precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart;the commandment of the Lord is clear, enlightening the eyes; 9 the fear of the Lord is pure, enduring forever;the ordinances of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. 10 More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and drippings of the honeycomb. 11 Moreover, by them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward. 12 But who can detect one’s own errors? Clear me from hidden faults. 13 Keep back your servant also from the insolent; do not let them have dominion over me. Then I shall be blameless and innocent of great transgression. 14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.
