(118-148) My eyes to thee have prevented the morning: that I might meditate on thy words.
(118-149) Hear thou my voice, O Lord, according to thy mercy: and quicken me according to thy judgment.
(118-150) They that persecute me have drawn nigh to iniquity; but they are gone far off from thy law.
(118-151) Thou art near, O Lord: and all thy ways are truth.
(118-152) I have known from the beginning concerning thy testimonies: that thou hast founded them for ever.
(118-153) See my humiliation and deliver me for I have not forgotten thy law.
(118-154) Judge my judgment and redeem me: quicken thou me for thy word’s sake.
(118-155) Salvation is far from sinners; because they have not sought thy justifications.
(118-156) Many, O Lord, are thy mercies: quicken me according to thy judgment.
(118-157) Many are they that persecute me and afflict me; but I have not declined from thy testimonies.
(118-158) I beheld the transgressors, and pined away; because they kept not thy word.
