Cut me off hath my zeal, For mine adversaries forgot Thy words.
Tried [is] thy saying exceedingly, And Thy servant hath loved it.
Small I [am], and despised, Thy precepts I have not forgotten.
Thy righteousness [is] righteousness to the age, And Thy law [is] truth.
Adversity and distress have found me, Thy commands [are] my delights.
The righteousness of Thy testimonies [is] to Cause me to understand, and I live!
[Koph.] I have called with the whole heart, Answer me, O Jehovah, Thy statutes I keep,
I have called Thee, save Thou me, And I do keep Thy testimonies.
I have gone forward in the dawn, and I cry, For Thy word I have hoped.
Mine eyes have gone before the watches, To meditate in Thy saying.
My voice hear, according to Thy kindness, Jehovah, according to Thy judgment quicken me.
