Your promise is well 1tried, and your servant 2loves it.
I am small and despised, yet I do not 3forget your precepts.
Your righteousness is righteous forever, and your law is 4true.
Trouble and anguish have found me out, but your commandments are my 5delight.
Your testimonies are righteous forever; 6give me understanding that I may 7live.
With my 8whole heart I cry; answer me, O LORD! I will 9keep your statutes.
I call to you; save me, that I may observe your testimonies.
I rise before 10dawn and cry for help; I 11hope in your words.
My eyes are awake before 12the watches of the night, that I may meditate on your promise.
Hear my voice according to your steadfast love; O LORD, 13according to your justice 14give me life.
They draw near who persecute me with evil purpose; they are far from your law.
