Psalms 19:1-4a (ANIV)
1 [For the director of music. A psalm of David.]
The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
2 Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they display knowledge.
3 There is no speech or language
where their voice is not heard. 
4 Their voice  goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.
In the heavens he has pitched a tent for the sun,
5 which is like a bridegroom coming forth from his pavilion,
like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
6 It rises at one end of the heavens
and makes its circuit to the other;
nothing is hidden from its heat.
Or, They have no speech, there are no words; / no sound is heard from them.
Septuagint, Jerome and Syriac; Hebrew, line.
TIME OF DAY:
Unspecified in Bible Text. Night.
Light from the Milky way galaxy illuminates this scene.
A watchful lizard!
Psalm 19 is an example of a Hymn, which lift the congregations praise to God, describing God’s greatness & majesty.
This simple, imagined scene is a response to the glory and sheer scale of the night sky, when we can see the Milky Way galaxy. The grandeur and brilliance of God’s creation is all around us. It “speaks” to us of His glorious creativity, if we listen with attentive ears.
You can see in the initial rough pencil sketch (below) that I intended to add a crescent moon, but the grandeur of the Milky Way might have been compromised, so I omitted it in the final design.
Notice there are little shepherds & sheep figures near the lizard in the foreground, and a walled town on a rocky outcrop in the middle distance.
This is the initial rough pencil sketch I drew for this scene.
