My zeal wears me out, Because my enemies ignore your words.
Your promises have been thoroughly tested, And your servant loves them.
I am small and despised. I don't forget your precepts.
Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness. Your law is truth.
Trouble and anguish have taken hold of me. Your mitzvot are my delight.
Your testimonies are righteous forever. Give me understanding, that I may live.
I have called with my whole heart. Answer me, LORD! I will keep your statutes.
I have called to you. Save me! I will obey your statutes.
I rise before dawn and cry for help. I put my hope in your words.
My eyes stay open through the night watches, That I might meditate on your word.
Hear my voice according to your lovingkindness. Revive me, LORD, according to your ordinances.
