TEACH me, O Lord, the way of thy statutes : and I shall keep it unto the end.
34 Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law : yea, I shall keep it with my whole heart.
35 Make me to go in the path of thy commandments : for therein is my desire.
36 Incline my heart unto thy testimonies : and not to covetousness.
37 O turn away mine eyes, lest they behold vanity : and quicken thou me in thy way.
38 O stablish thy word in thy servant : that I may fear thee.
39 Take away the rebuke that I am afraid of : for thy judgements are good.
40 Behold, my delight is in thy commandments : O quicken me in thy righteousness.

Et veniat super me

LET thy loving mercy come also unto me, O Lord : even thy salvation, according unto thy word.
42 So shall I make answer unto my blasphemers : for my trust is in thy word.
43 O take not the word of thy truth utterly out of my mouth : for my hope is in thy judgements.
44 So shall I alway keep thy law : yea, for ever and ever.
45 And I will walk at liberty : for I seek thy commandments.
46 I will speak of thy testimonies also, even before kings : and will not be ashamed.
47 And my delight shall be in thy commandments : which I have loved.
48 My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments, which I have loved : and my study shall be in thy statutes.

Memor esto servi tui

O THINK upon thy servant, as concerning thy word : wherein thou hast caused me to put my trust.
50 The same is my comfort in my trouble : for thy word hath quickened me.
51 The proud have had me exceedingly in derision : yet have I not shrinked from thy law.
52 For I remembered thine everlasting judgements, O Lord : and received comfort.
53 I am horribly afraid : for the ungodly that forsake thy law.
54 Thy statutes have been my songs : in the house of my pilgrimage.
55 I have thought upon thy Name, O Lord, in the night-season : and have kept thy law.
56 This I had : because I kept thy commandments.

Portio mea, Domine

THOU art my portion, O Lord : I have promised to keep thy law.
58 I made my humble petition in thy presence with my whole heart : O be merciful unto me, according to thy word.
59 I called mine own ways to remembrance : and turned my feet unto thy testimonies.
60 I made haste, and prolonged not the time : to keep thy commandments.
61 The congregations of the ungodly have robbed me : but I have not forgotten thy law.
62 At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto thee : because of thy righteous judgements.
63 I am a companion of all them that fear thee : and keep thy commandments.
64 The earth, O Lord, is full of thy mercy : O teach me thy statutes.

Bonitatem fecisti

O LORD, thou hast dealt graciously with thy servant : according unto thy word.
66 O learn me true understanding and knowledge : for I have believed thy commandments.
67 Before I was troubled, I went wrong : but now have I kept thy word.
68 Thou art good and gracious : O teach me thy statutes.
69 The proud have imagined a lie against me : but I will keep thy commandments with my whole heart.
70 Their heart is as fat as brawn : but my delight hath been in thy law.
71 It is good for me that I have been in trouble : that I may learn thy statutes.
72 The law of thy mouth is dearer unto me : than thousands of gold and silver.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son : and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be : world without end. Amen.
