Psalms Chapters 19-21
Psalms Chapter 19
1: The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
2: Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.
3: There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
4: Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,
5: Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.
6: His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.
7: The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.
8: The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.
9: The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring 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 warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.
12: Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.
13: Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.
14: Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
Psalms Chapter 20
1: The LORD hear thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob defend thee;
2: Send thee help from the sanctuary, and strengthen thee out of Zion;
3: Remember all thy offerings, and accept thy burnt sacrifice; Selah.
4: Grant thee according to thine own heart, and fulfill all thy counsel.
5: We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners: the LORD fulfill all thy petitions.
6: Now know I that the LORD saveth his anointed; he will hear him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand.
7: Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.
8: They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright.
9: Save, LORD: let the king hear us when we call.
Psalms Chapter 21
1: The king shall joy in thy strength, O LORD; and in thy salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!
2: Thou hast given him his heart's desire, and hast not withholden the request of his lips. Selah.
3: For thou preventest him with the blessings of goodness: thou settest a crown of pure gold on his head.
4: He asked life of thee, and thou gavest it him, even length of days for ever and ever.
5: His glory is great in thy salvation: honour and majesty hast thou laid upon him.
6: For thou hast made him most blessed for ever: thou hast made him exceeding glad with thy countenance.
7: For the king trusteth in the LORD, and through the mercy of the most High he shall not be moved.
8: Thine hand shall find out all thine enemies: thy right hand shall find out those that hate thee.
9: Thou shalt make them as a fiery oven in the time of thine anger: the LORD shall swallow them up in his wrath, and the fire shall devour them.
10: Their fruit shalt thou destroy from the earth, and their seed from among the children of men.
11: For they intended evil against thee: they imagined a mischievous device, which they are not able to perform.
12: Therefore shalt thou make them turn their back, when thou shalt make ready thine arrows upon thy strings against the face of them.
13: Be thou exalted, LORD, in thine own strength: so will we sing and praise thy power.
