145 To me that cry with my whole heart
Lord hear: thy statutes keep I will.
146 I unto thee did cry: save me,
and I shall keep thy records still.
147 The dawning I prevent, and cry:
I for thy word do hopeful wait.
148 Mine eyes prevent the night watches,
in thy word for to meditate.
149 Lord, of thy mercy hear my voice:
after thy judgments quicken me.
150 Who follow mischief, they draw nigh:
who from thy law afar off be.
151 But, O Jehovah, thou are near:
and all thy precepts verity.
152 I long since of thy records knew:
thou laid’st them for eternity.
153 View mine affliction, and me free:
for I thy law do not forget.
154 Plead thou my cause, and me redeem:
for thy word’s sake alive me set.
155 Salvation from lewd men is far:
sith they thy laws to find ne’er strive.
156 Great are thy bowel mercies Lord:
after thy judgments me revive.
157 Many my foes and hunters are:
yet I not from thy records swerve.
158 I saw transgressors, and was griev’d,
for they thy word do not observe.
159 See, Lord, that I thy precepts love:
grant of thy bounty live I may.
160 Thy word’s beginning it is truth:
and all thy right judgments for aye.
161 Without cause princes me pursue:
but of thy word my heart’s in awe.
162 As one that hath much booty found,
so I rejoice do in thy law.
163 Lying I hate, and it abhor:
but thy law dearly love do I.
164 Sev’n times a day I praise thee, for
the judgments of thine equity.
165 Great peace have they that love thy law:
and such shall find no stumblingstone.
166 I hop’d for thy salvation, Lord:
and thy commandments I have done.
167 My soul thy testimonies keeps:
and them I love exceedingly.
168 I keep thy rules and thy records:
for all my ways before thee be.
169 Yield, Lord, my cry, t’ approach thy face:
as thou hast spoke, me prudent make.
170 Let my request before thee come:
deliver me for thy word’s sake.
171 My lips shall utter forth thy praise:
when thou thy laws hast learned me.
172 My tongue shall forth thy word resound:
for all thy precepts justice be.
173 To help me let thy hand be near:
for thy commandments chose have I.
174 I long for thy salvation, Lord:
and my delights in thy law lie.
175 Let my soul live, and show thy praise:
help me also thy judgments let.
176 Like lost sheep stray’d, thy servant seek:
for I thy laws do not forget.
A Song of degrees.
1 Unto the Lord, in my distress
I cry’d, and he heard me.
2 From lying lips and guileful tongue,
O Lord, my soul set free.
3 What shall thy false tongue give to thee,
or what on thee confer?
4 Sharp arrows of the mighty ones,
with coals of juniper.
5 Woe’s me, that I in Mesech do
a sojourner remain:
that I do dwell in tents, which do
to Kedar appertain.
6 Long time my soul hath dwelt with him
that peace doth much abhor,
7 I am for peace, but when I speak,
they ready are for war.
