Original text and translations

Ps.19:1  The heavens declare the glory of God: and the firmament showeth his handywork.
Ps.19:2  Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night showeth knowledge.
Ps.19:3  There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
Ps.19:4  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,
Ps.19:5  Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.
