Caeli enarrant.

The heavens declare the | glory• of God;

* and the firmament | showeth• his handy-work.

2 One day | telleth• another;

* and one night | certi•fieth• another.

3 There is neither | speech nor language;

* but their | voices• are heard among them.

4 Their sound is gone out into | all lands;

* and their words into the | ends of the world.

5 In them hath he set a tabernacle | for the sun;

* which cometh forth as a bridegroom out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a | giant• to run his course.

6 It goeth forth from the uttermost part of the heaven, and runneth about unto the end of | it again;

* and there is nothing hid | from the heat thereof.

7 The law of the LORD is an undefiled law, con- | -verting• the soul;

* the testimony of the LORD is sure, and giveth | wisdom •unto• the simple.

8 The statutes of the LORD are right, and re- | -joice the heart;

* the commandment of the LORD is pure, and giveth | light •unto• the eyes.

9 The fear of the LORD is clean, and en- | -dureth• for ever;

* the judgments of the LORD are true, and | righteous altogether.

10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than | much fine gold;

* sweeter also than | honey, and the honeycomb.

11 Moreover, by them is thy | servant taught;

* and in keeping of them | there is great reward.

12 Who can tell how | oft •he of•fendeth?

* O cleanse thou me | from my secret faults.

13 Keep thy servant also from presumptuous sins, lest they get the dominion | over me;

* so shall I be undefiled, and innocent | from the great offence.

14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be alway acceptable | in thy sight,

* O LORD, my | strength and my redeemer.

Glory be to the Father, and | to the Son,

* and | to the Holy Ghost,

As it was in the beginning, is now, and | ever shall be,

* world without | end.  Amen.
