Great is the number of your mercies, O Lord; give me life in keeping with your decisions.
Great is the number of those who are against me; but I have not been turned away from your unchanging word.
I saw with hate those who were untrue to you; for they did not keep your saying.
See how great is my love for your orders: give me life, O Lord, in keeping with your mercy.
Your word is true from the first; and your upright decision is unchanging for ever.
161 Rulers have been cruel to me without cause; but I have the fear of your word in my heart.
I am delighted by your saying, like a man who makes discovery of great wealth.
I am full of hate and disgust for false words; but I am a lover of your law.
Seven times a day do I give you praise, because of your upright decisions.
Great peace have lovers of your law; they have no cause for falling.
Lord, my hope has been in your salvation; and I have kept your teachings.
