Your word [is] very pure, and your servant loves it.
I [am] small and despised, [yet] I do not forget your precepts.
Your righteousness [is] an everlasting righteousness, and your law [is] truth.
Trouble and anguish have found me; your commands delight me.
The righteousness of your testimonies [is] forever; give me understanding that I may live.
I call with [my] whole heart; answer me, O Yahweh. I will keep your statutes.
I call to you. Save me, and I will heed your testimonies.
I rise early in the dawn and cry for help; I hope in your word.a148
My eyes anticipate [the] night watches, that [I may] meditate on your word.
Hear my voice according to your loyal love; O Yahweh, preserve my life according to your justice.
[Those who] pursue a [wicked] purpose draw near; they are far from your law.
