Psalm 19:8a,9b,10b,11a [Latin Vulgate: Psalm 18:9-12]

8 The justices of the Lord are right, rejoicing hearts: the commandment of the Lord is lightsome, enlightening the eyes.

9 The fear of the Lord is holy, enduring for ever and ever: the judgments of the Lord are true, justified in themselves.

10 More to be desired than gold and many precious stones: and sweeter than honey and the honeycomb.

11 For thy servant keepeth them, and in keeping them there is a great reward.

Justítiæ Dómini rectæ, lætificántes corda, et judícia ejus dulcióra super mel et favum: nam et servus tuus custódit ea.

Psalm 19:8a,10b-11a [Latin]

8 The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.

10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.

8a The statutes of the Lord are right, and rejoice the heart

10b his judgments sweeter also than honey, and the honey-comb.

11a For thy servant keeps them.
