Thy testimonies are wonderful *
therefore doth my soul keep them.
When thy word goeth forth *
it giveth light and understanding unto the simple.
I opened my mouth, and drew in my breath *
for my delight was in thy commandments.
O look thou upon me, and be merciful unto me *
as thou usest to do unto those that love thy Name.
Order my steps in thy word *
and so shall no wickedness have dominion over me.
O deliver me from the wrongful dealings of men *
and so shall I keep thy commandments.
Shew the light of thy countenance upon thy servant *
and teach me thy statutes.
Mine eyes gush out with water *
because men keep not thy law.
Justus es, Domine
Righteous art thou, O Lord *
and true is thy judgement.
The testimonies that thou hast commanded *
are exceeding righteous and true.
My zeal hath even consumed me *
because mine enemies have forgotten thy words.
Thy word is tried to the uttermost *
and thy servant loveth it.
I am small, and of no reputation *
yet do I not forget thy commandments.
Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness *
and thy law is the truth.
Trouble and heaviness have taken hold upon me *
yet is my delight in thy commandments.
The righteousness of thy testimonies is everlasting *
O grant me understanding, and I shall live.
Clamavi in toto corde meo
I call with my whole heart *
hear me, O Lord, I will keep thy statutes.
Yea, even unto thee do I call *
help me, and I shall keep thy testimonies.
Early in the morning do I cry unto thee *
for in thy word is my trust.
Mine eyes prevent the night-watches *
that I might be occupied in thy words.
Hear my voice, O Lord, according unto thy loving-kindness *
quicken me, according as thou art wont.
They draw nigh that of malice persecute me *
and are far from thy law.
Be thou nigh at hand, O Lord *
for all thy commandments are true.
As concerning thy testimonies, I have known long since *
that thou hast grounded them for ever.
