(118-23) For princes sat, and spoke against me: but thy servant was employed in thy justifications.
(118-24) For thy testimonies are my meditation: and thy justifications my counsel.
(118-25) My soul hath cleaved to the pavement: quicken thou me according to thy word.
(118-26) I have declared my ways, and thou hast heard me: teach me thy justifications.
(118-27) Make me to understand the way of thy justifications: and I shall be exercised in thy wondrous works.
(118-28) My soul hath slumbered through heaviness: strengthen thou me in thy words.
(118-29) Remove from me the way of iniquity: and out of thy law have mercy on me.
(118-30) I have chosen the way of truth: thy judgments I have not forgotten.
(118-31) I have stuck to thy testimonies, O Lord: put me not to shame.
(118-32) I have run the way of thy commandments, when thou didst enlarge my heart.
(118-33) Set before me for a law the way of thy justifications, O Lord: and I will always seek after it.
