Great is thy mercy, O LORD; give me life according to thy justice.
Many are my persecutors and my adversaries, but I do not swerve from thy testimonies.
I look at the faithless with disgust, because they do not keep thy commands.
Consider how I love thy precepts! Preserve my life according to thy steadfast love.
The sum of thy word is truth; and every one of thy righteous ordinances endures for ever.
Princes persecute me without cause, but my heart stands in awe of thy words.
I rejoice at thy word like one who finds great spoil.
I hate and abhor falsehood, but I love thy law.
Seven times a day I praise thee for thy righteous ordinances.
Great peace have those who love thy law; nothing can make them stumble.
I hope for thy salvation, O LORD, and I do thy commandments.
