(118-140) Thy word is exceedingly refined: and thy servant hath loved it.
(118-141) I am very young and despised; but I forget not thy justifications.
(118-142) Thy justice is justice for ever: and thy law is the truth.
(118-143) Trouble and anguish have found me: thy commandments are my meditation.
(118-144) Thy testimonies are justice for ever: give me understanding, and I shall live.
(118-145) I cried with my whole heart, hear me, O Lord: I will seek thy justifications.
(118-146) I cried unto thee, save me: that I may keep thy commandments.
(118-147) I prevented the dawning of the day, and cried: because in thy words I very much hoped.
(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.
