1 “Give ear, kO heavens, and I will speak,
and let lthe earth hear the words of my mouth.
2 May mmy teaching drop as the rain,
my speech distill as the dew,
like gentle rain upon the tender grass,
and nlike showers upon the herb.
3 For I will proclaim the name of the Lord;
ascribe ogreatness to our God!
for rall his ways are justice.
A God of faithfulness and swithout iniquity,
just and upright is he.
