My soul cleaves to the dust; *
O revive me, according to your word.
I have acknowledged my ways, and you heard me; *
O teach me your statutes.
Make me to understand the way of your commandments, *
and so shall I meditate on your wondrous works.
My soul melts away for heaviness; *
comfort me according to your word.
Take from me the way of lying, *
and graciously teach me your law.
I have chosen the way of truth, *
and your judgments have I set before me.
I hold fast to your testimonies; *
O Lord, let me not be put to shame.
I will run the way of your commandments *
when you enlarge my heart with understanding.
Teach me, O Lord, the way of your statutes, *
and I shall keep it to the end.
Give me understanding, and I shall keep your law; *
indeed, I shall keep it with my whole heart.
Make me go in the path of your commandments, *
for therein is my desire.
Incline my heart to your testimonies, *
and not to covetous desires.
O turn away my eyes, lest they behold vanity, *
and revive me in your ways.
Confirm your word to your servant, *
and to all those who fear you.
Take away the reproach that I am afraid of, *
for your judgments are good.
Behold, my delight is in your precepts; *
O revive me in your righteousness.
Et veniat super me
Let your loving mercy come to me, O Lord, *
even your salvation, according to your word.
So shall I answer those who taunt me, *
for my trust is in your word.
O do not take the word of your truth utterly out of my mouth, *
for my hope is in your judgments.
So shall I always keep your law, *
even for ever and ever.
And I will walk at liberty, *
for I seek your commandments.
I will speak of your testimonies also, even before kings, *
and will not be ashamed.
And my delight shall be in your commandments, *
which I have loved exceedingly.
My hands also will I lift up to your commandments, *
and I will meditate on your statutes.
