Coeli enarrant. The works of God shew forth his glory: his law is greatly to be esteemed and loved.

[1] Unto the end. A psalm for David.
In finem. Psalmus David.

[2] The heavens shew forth the glory of God, and the firmament declareth the work of his hands.
Caeli enarrant gloriam Dei, et opera manuum ejus annuntiat firmamentum.

[3] Day to day uttereth speech, and night to night sheweth knowledge.
Dies diei eructat verbum, et nox nocti indicat scientiam.

[4] There are no speeches nor languages, where their voices are not heard.
Non sunt loquelae, neque sermones, quorum non audiantur voces eorum.

[5] Their sound hath gone forth into all the earth: and their words unto the ends of the world.
In omnem terram exivit sonus eorum, et in fines orbis terrae verba eorum.

[6] He hath set his tabernacle in the sun: and he, as a bridegroom coming out of his bride chamber, Hath rejoiced as a giant to run the way:
In sole posuit tabernaculum suum; et ipse tamquam sponsus procedens de thalamo suo. Exsultavit ut gigas ad currendam viam;

[7] His going out is from the end of heaven, And his circuit even to the end thereof: and there is no one that can hide himself from his heat.
a summo caelo egressio ejus. Et occursus ejus usque ad summum ejus; nec est qui se abscondat a calore ejus.

[8] The law of the Lord is unspotted, converting souls: the testimony of the Lord is faithful, giving wisdom to little ones.
Lex Domini immaculata, convertens animas; testimonium Domini fidele, sapientiam praestans parvulis.

[9] The justices of the Lord are right, rejoicing hearts: the commandment of the Lord is lightsome, enlightening the eyes.
Justitiae Domini rectae, laetificantes corda; praeceptum Domini lucidum, illuminans oculos.

[10] The fear of the Lord is holy, enduring for ever and ever: the judgments of the Lord are true, justified in themselves.
Timor Domini sanctus, permanens in saeculum saeculi; judicia Domini vera, justificata in semetipsa.

[11] More to be desired than gold and many precious stones: and sweeter than honey and the honeycomb.
Desiderabilia super aurum et lapidem pretiosum multum; et dulciora super mel et favum.

[12] For thy servant keepeth them, and in keeping them there is a great reward.
Etenim servus tuus custodit ea; in custodiendis illis retributio multa.

[13] Who can understand sins? from my secret ones cleanse me, O Lord:
Delicta quis intelligit? ab occultis meis munda me;

[14] And from those of others spare thy servant. If they shall have no dominion over me, then shall I be without spot: and I shall be cleansed from the greatest sin.
et ab alienis parce servo tuo. Si mei non fuerint dominati, tunc immaculatus ero, et emundabor a delicto maximo.

[15] And the words of my mouth shall be such as may please: and the meditation of my heart always in thy sight. O Lord, my helper, and my redeemer.
Et erunt ut complaceant eloquia oris mei, et meditatio cordis mei in conspectu tuo semper. Domine, adjutor meus, et redemptor meus.
