Your testimonies are wonderful; *
therefore does my soul keep them.
When your word goes forth it gives light *
and understanding to the simple.
I opened my mouth, and drew in my breath, *
for my delight was in your commandments.
O look upon me, and be merciful unto me, *
as you always do for those who love your Name.
Order my steps according to your word, *
and so shall no wickedness have dominion over me.
O deliver me from those who deal wrongfully, *
and so shall I keep your commandments.
Show the light of your countenance upon your servant, *
and teach me your statutes.
My eyes gush out water *
because of those who do not keep your law.
Justus es, Domine
Righteous are you, O Lord, *
and true are your judgments.
The testimonies that you have commanded *
are exceedingly righteous and true.
My zeal has even consumed me, *
because my enemies have forgotten your words.
Your word is tested to the uttermost, *
and therefore your servant loves it.
I am small, and of no reputation, *
yet I do not forget your commandments.
Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, *
and your law is the truth.
Trouble and heaviness have taken hold of me, *
yet my delight is in your commandments.
The righteousness of your 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 your statutes.
Even unto you do I call; *
help me, and I shall keep your testimonies.
Early in the morning do I cry unto you, *
for in your word is my trust.
My eyes open before the night watches, *
that I may meditate on your words.
Hear my voice, O Lord, according to your loving-kindness; *
give me life according to your judgments.
They draw nigh who in malice persecute me, *
and are far from your law.
Be near at hand, O Lord, *
for all your commandments are true.
Concerning your testimonies, I have known long ago *
that you have founded them for ever.
