I am small and despised, yet I do not forget Thy precepts.
Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and Thy law is the truth.
Trouble and anguish have taken hold on me, yet Thy commandments are my delights.
The righteousness of Thy testimonies is everlasting; give me understanding, and I shall live.
<> I cried with my whole heart: hear me, O LORD; I will keep Thy statutes.
I cried unto Thee: save me, and I shall keep Thy testimonies.
I awaited the dawning of the morning and cried; I hoped in Thy word.
Mine eyes awaited the night watches, that I might meditate on Thy word.
Hear my voice according unto Thy lovingkindness; O LORD, quicken me according to Thy judgment.
They draw nigh that follow after mischief; they are far from Thy law.
Thou art near, O LORD, and all Thy commandments are truth.
