Ps.19:2  One day telleth another: and one night certifieth another.
Ps.19:3  There is neither speech nor language: but their voices are heard among them.
Ps.19:4  Their sound is gone out into all lands: and their words into the ends of the world.
Ps.19:5  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.
