(118-1) Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the Lord.
(118-2) Blessed are they that search his testimonies: that seek him with their whole heart.
(118-3) For they that work iniquity, have not walked in his ways.
(118-4) Thou hast commanded thy commandments to be kept most diligently.
(118-5) O! that my ways may be directed to keep thy justifications.
(118-6) Then shall I not be confounded, when I shall look into all thy commandments.
(118-7) I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall have learned the judgments of thy justice.
(118-8) I will keep thy justifications: O! do not thou utterly forsake me.
(118-9) By what doth a young man correct his way? by observing thy words.
(118-10) With my whole heart have I sought after thee: let me not stray from thy commandments.
(118-11) Thy words have I hidden in my heart, that I may not sin against thee.
(118-12) Blessed art thou, O Lord: teach me thy justifications.
(118-13) With my lips I have pronounced all the judgments of thy mouth.
(118-14) I have been delighted in the way of thy testimonies, as in all riches.
(118-15) I will meditate on thy commandments: and I will consider thy ways.
(118-16) I will think of thy justifications: I will not forget thy words.
(118-17) Give bountifully to thy servant, enliven me: and I shall keep thy words.
(118-18) Open thou my eyes: and I will consider the wondrous things of thy law.
(118-19) I am a sojourner on the earth: hide not thy commandments from me.
(118-20) My soul hath coveted to long for thy justifications, at all times.
(118-21) Thou hast rebuked the proud: they are cursed who decline from thy commandments.
(118-22) Remove from me reproach and contempt: because I have sought after thy testimonies.
(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.
(118-34) Give me understanding, and I will search thy law; and I will keep it with my whole heart.
(118-35) Lead me into the path of thy commandments; for this same I have desired.
(118-36) Incline my heart into thy testimonies and not to covetousness.
(118-37) Turn away my eyes that they may not behold vanity: quicken me in thy way.
(118-38) Establish thy word to thy servant, in thy fear.
(118-39) Turn away my reproach, which I have apprehended: for thy judgments are delightful.
(118-40) Behold I have longed after thy precepts: quicken me in thy justice.
(118-41) Let thy mercy also come upon me, O Lord: thy salvation according to thy word.
(118-42) So shall I answer them that reproach me in any thing; that I have trusted in thy words.
(118-43) And take not thou the word of truth utterly out of my mouth: for in thy words, I have hoped exceedingly.
(118-44) So shall I always keep thy law, for ever and ever.
(118-45) And I walked at large: because I have sought after thy commandments.
(118-46) And I spoke of thy testimonies before kings: and I was not ashamed.
(118-47) I meditated also on thy commandments, which I loved.
(118-48) And I lifted up my hands to thy commandments, which I loved: and I was exercised in thy justifications.
(118-49) Be thou mindful of thy word to thy servant, in which thou hast given me hope.
(118-50) This hath comforted me in my humiliation: because thy word hath enlivened me.
(118-51) The proud did iniquitously altogether: but I declined not from thy law.
(118-52) I remembered, O Lord, thy judgments of old: and I was comforted.
(118-53) A fainting hath taken hold of me, because of the wicked that forsake thy law.
(118-54) Thy justifications were the subject of my song, in the place of my pilgrimage.
(118-55) In the night I have remembered thy name, O Lord: and have kept thy law.
(118-56) This happened to me: because I sought after thy justifications.
(118-57) O Lord, my portion, I have said, I would keep thy law.
(118-58) I entreated thy face with all my heart: have mercy on me according to thy word.
(118-59) I have thought on my ways: and turned my feet unto thy testimonies.
(118-60) I am ready, and am not troubled: that I may keep thy commandments.
(118-61) The cords of the wicked have encompassed me: but I have not forgotten thy law.
(118-62) I rose at midnight to give praise to thee; for the judgments of thy justification.
(118-63) I am a partaker with all them that fear thee, and that keep thy commandments.
(118-64) The earth, O Lord, is full of thy mercy: teach me thy justifications.
(118-65) Thou hast done well with thy servant, O Lord, according to thy word.
(118-66) Teach me goodness and discipline and knowledge; for I have believed thy commandments.
(118-67) Before I was humbled I offended; therefore have I kept thy word.
(118-68) Thou art good; and in thy goodness teach me thy justifications.
(118-69) The iniquity of the proud hath been multiplied over me: but I will seek thy commandments with my whole heart.
(118-70) Their heart is curdled like milk: but I have meditated on thy law.
(118-71) It is good for me that thou hast humbled me, that I may learn thy justifications.
(118-72) The law of thy mouth is good to me, above thousands of gold and silver.
(118-73) Thy hands have made me and formed me: give me understanding, and I will learn thy commandments.
(118-74) They that fear thee shall see me, and shall be glad:because I have greatly hoped in thy words.
(118-75) I know, O Lord, that thy judgments are equity: and in thy truth thou hast humbled me.
(118-76) O! let thy mercy be for my comfort, according to thy word unto thy servant.
(118-77) Let thy tender mercies come unto me, and I shall live: for thy law is my meditation.
(118-78) Let the proud be ashamed, because they have done unjustly towards me: but I will be employed in thy commandments.
(118-79) Let them that fear thee turn to me: and they that know thy testimonies.
(118-80) Let my heart be undefiled in thy justifications, that I may not be confounded.
(118-81) My soul hath fainted after thy salvation: and in thy word I have very much hoped.
(118-82) My eyes have failed for thy word, saying: When wilt thou comfort me?
(118-83) For I am become like a bottle in the frost: I have not forgotten thy justifications.
(118-84) How many are the days of thy servant: when wilt thou execute judgment on them that persecute me?
(118-85) The wicked have told me fables: but not as thy law.
(118-86) All thy statutes are truth: they have persecuted me unjustly, do thou help me.
(118-87) They had almost made an end of me upon earth: but I have not forsaken thy commandments.
(118-88) Quicken thou me according to thy mercy: and I shall keep the testimonies of thy mouth.
(118-89) For ever, O Lord, thy word standeth firm in heaven.
(118-90) Thy truth unto all generations: thou hast founded the earth, and it continueth.
(118-91) By thy ordinance the day goeth on: for all things serve thee.
(118-92) Unless thy law had been my meditation, I had then perhaps perished in my abjection.
