For the choir director. A Psalm of David.
The heavens are telling of the glory of God;
And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.
because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them.
Then God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years;
When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
The moon and the stars, which You have ordained;
And the heavens declare His righteousness,
For God Himself is judge. Selah.
Then God said, “Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.”
By the word of the Lord the heavens were made,
And by the breath of His mouth all their host.
The heavens are the heavens of the Lord,
But the earth He has given to the sons of men.
Praise Him, sun and moon;
Praise Him, all stars of light!
Praise the Lord!
Praise God in His sanctuary;
Praise Him in His mighty expanse.
Thus you shall say to them, “The gods that did not make the heavens and the earth will perish from the earth and from under the heavens.”
It is He who sits above the circle of the earth,
And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers,
Who stretches out the heavens like a curtain
And spreads them out like a tent to dwell in.
Those who have insight will shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who lead the many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.
