The LORD is my 1portion ; I have apromised to 2keep Your words.
I 3sought Your favor4with all my heart ; 5Be gracious to me 6according to Your bword.
I 7considered my ways And turned my feet to Your testimonies.
I hastened and did not delay To keep Your commandments.
The 8cords of the wicked have encircled me, But I have 9not forgotten Your law.
At 10midnight I shall rise to givethanks to You Because of Your 11righteousordinances.
I am a 12companion of all those whocfear You, And of those who keep Your precepts.
6413The earth is full of Your lovingkindness, O LORD ; 14Teach me Your statutes. Teth.
