Study Guide – Psalm 19:1-6

Psalm19-1-6

The heavens declare the glory of God;

    the skies proclaim the work of his hands.


Day after day they pour forth speech;


    night after night they reveal knowledge.


They have no speech, they use no words;


    no sound is heard from them.


Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,


    their words to the ends of the world.


In the heavens God has pitched a tent for
the sun.


    It is like
a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,


    like a champion rejoicing to run his course.


It rises at one end of the heavens


    and makes its circuit to the other;


    nothing is deprived of its warmth.
NIV
