Thy ·word is exceeding pure, a and thy servant loveth it.
I am little and despised: thy precepts have I not forgotten.
Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, b and thy law is truth.
Trouble and anguish have taken hold upon me: thy commandments are my delights.
The righteousness of thy testimonies is for ever: give me understanding, and I shall live.
KOPH. I have called with [my] whole heart; answer me, O Jehovah: I will observe thy statutes.
I call upon thee; save me, and I will keep thy testimonies.
I anticipate the morning-dawn and I cry: I hope in thy word.
Mine eyes anticipate the night-watches, that I may meditate in thy ·word.
Hear my voice according to thy loving-kindness: O Jehovah, quicken me according to thy judgment.
They have drawn nigh that follow after mischief: they are far from thy law.
