This one starts with the sky offering teaching, then a strong defense of God’s teaching, then a quick prayer. For a reliable translation, please see the ESV version.
The galaxies above in the night sky, uncountable wonders, invite unending praise of Jesus and his creation!
Every day and night, the cosmos offers knowledge graciously
to those who are willing to listen to its silence presentation
broadcasting all around the globe. And as if to give as a strong and caring guardian,
Jesus orchestrated our sun to rise and shine, leaving the bed of clouds to joyfully do its shift providing for
and revealing the secrets of the Earth until it rests again in the evening.
Jesus’ instruction is flawless, refreshing to those who follow it. His rules reliable, making complex wisdom understandable.
His commands are correct, providing deep and lasting joy. His regulations tried and true, teaching freely.
There’s nothing wrong with revering Jesus! His demands are completely justified.
His words are more valuable than diamonds and sweeter than honey.
They are good warnings, worth it to follow.
Nobody can find anything wrong with them! Jesus, clear my record of wrongs I’m unaware of committing!
Don’t let me unconsciously wrong you and others — I don’t want these mistakes haunting me.
Then I’ll have a clean record!
I hope you find what I think and say to be acceptable, Jesus — my stability and redemption!
