Teach me, O Lord, the way of thy statutes *
and I shall keep it unto the end.
Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law *
yea, I shall keep it with my whole heart.
Make me to go in the path of thy commandments *
for therein is my desire.
Incline my heart unto thy testimonies *
and not to covetousness.
O turn away mine eyes, lest they behold vanity *
and quicken thou me in thy way.
O stablish thy word in thy servant *
that I may fear thee.
Take away the rebuke that I am afraid of *
for thy judgements are good.
Behold, my delight is in thy commandments *
O quicken me in thy righteousness.
Et veniat super me
Let thy loving mercy come also unto me, O Lord *
even thy salvation, according unto thy word.
So shall I make answer unto my blasphemers *
for my trust is in thy word.
O take not the word of thy truth utterly out of my mouth *
for my hope is in thy judgements.
So shall I alway keep thy law *
yea, for ever and ever.
And I will walk at liberty *
for I seek thy commandments.
I will speak of thy testimonies also, even before kings *
and will not be ashamed.
And my delight shall be in thy commandments *
which I have loved.
My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments, which I have loved *
and my study shall be in thy statutes.
Memor esto servi tui
O think upon thy servant, as concerning thy word *
wherein thou hast caused me to put my trust.
The same is my comfort in my trouble *
for thy word hath quickened me.
The proud have had me exceedingly in derision *
yet have I not shrinked from thy law.
For I remembered thine everlasting judgements, O Lord *
and received comfort.
I am horribly afraid *
for the ungodly that forsake thy law.
Thy statutes have been my songs *
in the house of my pilgrimage.
I have thought upon thy Name, O Lord, in the night-season *
and have kept thy law.
This I had *
because I kept thy commandments.
Portio mea, Domine
Thou art my portion, O Lord *
I have promised to keep thy law.
I made my humble petition in thy presence with my whole heart *
O be merciful unto me, according to thy word.
I called mine own ways to remembrance *
and turned my feet unto thy testimonies.
I made haste, and prolonged not the time *
to keep thy commandments.
The congregations of the ungodly have robbed me *
but I have not forgotten thy law.
At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto thee *
because of thy righteous judgements.
I am a companion of all them that fear thee *
and keep thy commandments.
The earth, O Lord, is full of thy mercy *
O teach me thy statutes.
O Lord, thou hast dealt graciously with thy servant *
according unto thy word.
O learn me true understanding and knowledge *
for I have believed thy commandments.
Before I was troubled, I went wrong *
but now have I kept thy word.
Thou art good and gracious *
O teach me thy statutes.
The proud have imagined a lie against me *
but I will keep thy commandments with my whole heart.
Their heart is as fat as brawn *
but my delight hath been in thy law.
It is good for me that I have been in trouble *
that I may learn thy statutes.
The law of thy mouth is dearer unto me *
than thousands of gold and silver.
