119:1 ALEPH. Blessed are the vndefiled in the way: who walke in the Law of the Lord. 119:2 Blessed are they that keepe his testimonies: and that seeke him with the whole heart. 119:3 They also doe no iniquitie: they walke in his wayes. 119:4 Thou hast commaunded vs to keepe thy precepts diligently. 119:5 O that my wayes were directed to keepe thy statutes! 119:6 Then shall I not bee ashamed: when I haue respect vnto all thy commandements. 119:7 I will praise thee with vprightnesse of heart: when I shall haue learned thy righteous iudgements. 119:8 I will keepe thy statutes: O forsake me not vtterly. 119:9 BETH. Wherewithall shall a yong man cleanse his way by taking heede thereto according to thy word. 119:10 With my whole heart haue I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy Commandements. 119:11 Thy word haue I hidde in mine heart: that I might not sinne against thee. 119:12 Blessed art thou, O Lord: teach me thy statutes. 119:13 With my lips haue I declared all the iudgements of thy mouth. 119:14 I haue reioyced in the way of thy testimonies: as much as in all riches. 119:15 I will meditate in thy precepts: and haue respect vnto thy wayes. 119:16 I will delight my selfe in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word. 119:17 GIMEL. Deale bountifully with thy seruant; that I may liue, and keepe thy word. 119:18 Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wonderous things out of thy Law. 119:19 I am a stranger in the earth: hide not thy commandements from me. 119:20 My soule breaketh for the longing: that it hath vnto thy iudgements at all times. 119:21 Thou hast rebuked the proud that are cursed: which doe erre from thy Commandements. 119:22 Remooue from me reproch and contempt: for I haue kept thy testimonies. 119:23 Princes also did sit and speake against me: but thy seruant did meditate in thy statutes. 119:24 Thy testimonies also are my delight: and my counsellers. 119:25 DALETH. My soule cleaueth vnto the dust: quicken thou mee according to thy word. 119:26 I haue declared my wayes, and thou heardest me: teach me thy Statutes. 119:27 Make me to vnderstand the way of thy precepts: so shall I talke of thy wonderous workes. 119:28 My soule melteth for heauines: strengthen thou me according vnto thy word. 119:29 Remoue from mee the way of lying: and grant me thy Law graciously. 119:30 I haue chosen the way of trueth: thy iudgements haue I laid before me. 119:31 I haue stucke vnto thy Testimonies: O Lord put me not to shame. 119:32 I will runne the way of thy Commandements: when thou shalt enlarge my heart. 119:33 HE. Teach me, O Lord, the way of thy Statutes: and I shall keepe it vnto the end. 119:34 Giue me vnderstanding, and I shall keepe thy Law: yea I shall obserue it with my whole heart. 119:35 Make me to goe in the path of thy commandements: for therein doe I delight. 119:36 Incline my heart vnto thy testimonies: and not to couetousnesse. 119:37 Turne away mine eyes from beholding vanitie: and quicken thou me in thy way. 119:38 Stablish thy word vnto thy seruant: who is deuoted to thy feare. 119:39 Turne away my reproch which I feare: for thy iudgements are good. 119:40 Behold, I haue longed after thy precepts: quicken me in thy righteousnesse. 119:41 VAV. Let thy mercies come also vnto me, O Lord: euen thy saluation, according to thy word. 119:42 So shall I haue wherewith to answere him that reprocheth me: for I trust in thy word. 119:43 And take not the word of trueth vtterly out of my mouth: for I haue hoped in thy iudgements. 119:44 So shall I keepe thy Law continually: for euer and euer. 119:45 And I wil walke at libertie: for I seeke thy precepts. 119:46 I will speake of thy testimonies also before kings, & wil not be ashamed. 119:47 And I will delight my selfe in thy commandements, which I haue loued. 119:48 My hands also will I lift vp vnto thy commandements, which I haue loued: and I will meditate in thy statutes. 119:49 ZAIN. Remember the word vnto thy seruant: vpon which thou hast caused me to hope. 119:50 This is my comfort in my affliction: for thy word hath quickened me. 119:51 The proud haue had mee greatly in derision: yet haue I not declined from thy Law. 119:52 I remembred thy iudgements of old, O Lord: and haue comforted my selfe. 119:53 Horrour hath taken holde vpon me, because of the wicked that forsake thy Law. 119:54 Thy statutes haue bin my songs in the house of my pilgrimage. 119:55 I haue remembred thy name, O Lord, in the night, and haue kept thy Law. 119:56 This I had: because I kept thy precepts. 119:57 CHETH. Thou art my portion, O Lord, I haue said, that I would keepe thy words. 119:58 I intreated thy fauour with my whole heart: be mercifull vnto mee according to thy word. 119:59 I thought on my wayes: and turned my feete vnto thy Testimonies. 119:60 I made haste; and delayed not to keepe thy commandements. 119:61 The bands of the wicked haue robbed me: but I haue not forgotten thy lawe. 119:62 At mid-night I will rise to giue thankes vnto thee: because of thy righteous iudgements. 119:63 I am a companion of all them that feare thee: and of them that keepe thy precepts. 119:64 The earth, O Lord, is full of thy mercy: teach me thy statutes. 119:65 TETH. Thou hast dealt well with thy seruant, Oh Lord, according vnto thy word. 119:66 Teach me good iudgement and knowledge: for I haue beleeued thy commandements. 119:67 Before I was afflicted, I went astray: but now haue I kept thy word. 119:68 Thou art good, and doest good; teach me thy statutes. 119:69 The proud haue forged a lie against me: but I will keepe thy precepts with my whole heart. 119:70 Their heart is as fat as grease: but I delight in thy law. 119:71 It is good for me that I haue bene afflicted: that I might learne thy statutes. 119:72 The law of thy mouth is better vnto me: then thousands of gold and siluer. 119:73 IOD. Thy hands haue made me and fashioned me: giue me vnderstanding, that I may learne thy commandements. 119:74 They that feare thee will bee glad when they see mee: because I haue hoped in thy word. 119:75 I knowe, O Lord, that thy iudgements are right: and that thou in faithfulnesse hast afflicted me. 119:76 Let, I pray thee, thy mercifull kindnesse be for my comfort; according to thy word vnto thy seruant. 119:77 Let thy tender mercies come vnto me, that I may liue: for thy lawe is my delight. 119:78 Let the proud be ashamed, for they dealt peruersly with me without a cause: but I will meditate in thy precepts. 119:79 Let those that feare thee turne vnto me: and those that haue knowen thy testimonies. 119:80 Let my heart be sound in thy statutes; that I be not ashamed. 119:81 CAPH. My soule fainteth for thy saluation: but I hope in thy word. 119:82 Mine eyes faile for thy word: saying, When wilt thou comfort me 119:83 For I am become like a bottle in the smoke: yet doe I not forget thy statutes. 119:84 How many are the dayes of thy seruant when wilt thou execute iudgement on them that persecute me 119:85 The proud haue digged pittes for me: which are not after thy law. 119:86 All thy commaundements are faithfull: they persecute me wrongfully; helpe thou me. 119:87 They had almost consumed mee vpon earth: but I forsooke not thy precepts. 119:88 Quicken mee after thy louing kindnesse: so shall I keepe the testimonie of thy mouth. 119:89 LAMED. Foreuer, O Lord, thy word is setled, in heauen. 119:90 Thy faithfulnesse is vnto all generations: thou hast established the earth, and it abideth. 119:91 They continue this day according to thine ordinances: for all are thy seruants. 119:92 Unlesse thy lawe had bene my delights: I should then haue perished in mine affliction. 119:93 I will neuer forget thy precepts: for with them thou hast quickened me. 119:94 I am thine, saue me: for I haue sought thy precepts. 119:95 The wicked haue waited for me to destroy me: but I will consider thy testimonies. 119:96 I haue seene an end of all perfection: but thy commandement is exceeding broad. 119:97 MEM. O How loue I thy Law! it is my meditation all the day. 119:98 Thou through thy Commandements hast made me wiser then mine enemies: for they are euer with mee. 119:99 I haue more vnderstanding then all my teachers: for thy Testimonies are my meditation. 119:100 I vnderstand more then the ancients: because I keepe thy precepts. 119:101 I haue refrained my feete from euery euill way: that I may keepe thy word. 119:102 I haue not departed from thy Iudgements: for thou hast taught me. 119:103 How sweet are thy words vnto my taste! yea, sweeter then hony to my mouth. 119:104 Through thy precepts I get vnderstanding: therefore I hate euery false way. 119:105 NVN. Thy word is a lampe vnto my feete: and a light vnto my path. 119:106 I haue sworne, and I will performe it: that I will keepe thy righteous iudgements. 119:107 I am afflicted very much: quicken mee, O Lord, according vnto thy word. 119:108 Accept, I beseech thee, the freewil offrings of my mouth, O Lord: and teach me thy iudgements. 119:109 My soule is continually in my hand: yet doe I not forget thy Law. 119:110 The wicked haue layde a snare for mee: yet I erred not from thy precepts. 119:111 Thy Testimonies haue I taken as an heritage for euer: for they are the reioycing of my heart. 119:112 I haue inclined mine heart to performe thy Statutes, alway, euen vnto the end. 119:113 SAMECH. I hate vaine thoughts: but thy Law doe I loue. 119:114 Thou art my hiding place, and my shield: I hope in thy word. 119:115 Depart from me, ye euil doers: for I will keepe the Commandements of my God. 119:116 Uphold mee according vnto thy word, that I may liue: and let mee not be ashamed of my hope. 119:117 Hold thou me vp, and I shall be safe: and I will haue respect vnto thy Statutes continually. 119:118 Thou hast troden downe all them that erre from thy Statutes: for their deceit is falshood. 119:119 Thou puttest away all the wicked of the earth like drosse: therefore I loue thy Testimonies. 119:120 My flesh trembleth for feare of thee: and I am afraide of thy Iudgements. 119:121 AIN. I Haue done Iudgement and iustice: leaue mee not to mine oppressours. 119:122 Bee suretie for thy seruant for good: let not the proud oppresse me. 119:123 Mine eyes faile for thy saluation: and for the word of thy righteousnesse. 119:124 Deale with thy seruant according vnto thy mercie: and teach me thy Statutes. 119:125 I am thy seruant, giue me vnderstanding: that I may know thy Testimonies. 119:126 It is time for thee, Lord, to worke: for they haue made voyde thy Law. 119:127 Therefore I loue thy Commandements: aboue gold, yea aboue fine gold. 119:128 Therefore I esteeme all thy precepts concerning all things to be right: and I hate euery false way. 119:129 PE. Thy Testimonies are wonderfull: therefore doeth my soule keepe them. 119:130 The entrance of thy wordes giueth light: it giueth vnderstanding vnto the simple. 119:131 I opened my mouth, and panted: for I longed for thy Commandements. 119:132 Looke thou vpon mee, and be mercifull vnto me: as thou vsest to do vnto those that loue thy Name. 119:133 Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquitie haue dominion ouer me. 119:134 Deliuer me from the oppression of man: so will I keepe thy precepts. 119:135 Make thy face to shine vpon thy seruant: and teach me thy Statutes. 119:136 Riuers of waters runne downe mine eyes: because they keepe not thy Law. 119:137 TSADDI. Righteous art thou, O Lord: and vpright are thy iudgements. 119:138 Thy testimonies that thou hast commaunded, are righteous: and very faithfull. 119:139 My zeale hath consumed me: because mine enemies haue forgotten thy words. 119:140 Thy word is very pure: therefore thy seruant loueth it. 119:141 I am small and despised: yet doe not I forget thy precepts. 119:142 Thy righteousnesse is an euerlasting righteousnesse: and thy law is the trueth. 119:143 Trouble and anguish haue taken hold on me: yet thy commaundements are my delights. 119:144 The righteousnesse of thy Testimonies is euerlasting: giue me vnderstanding, and I shall liue. 119:145 KOPH.
