Representative Text


129 Thy statutes, Lord, are wonderful,
my soul them keeps with care.
130 The entrance of thy words gives light,
makes wise who simple are.
131 My mouth I also opened have,
and panted earnestly,
for after thy commandments I
have longed exceedingly.

132 Look on me, Lord, and merciful
do thou unto me prove,
as thou art wont to do to those
thy name who truly love.
133 O let my footsteps in thy word
aright still ordered be:
let no iniquity obtain
dominion over me.

134 From man’s oppression save thou me;
so keep thy laws I will.
135 Thy face make on thy servant shine;
teach me thy statutes still.
136 Rivers of waters from mine eyes
ran down, because I saw
that wicked men go on in sin,
and do not keep thy law.
