Psalm 119Cheth, The 8th Part.

8,6,8,6

57Thou my sure portion art alone,

which I did chuse, O Lord:

I have resolv’d, and said, that I

would keep thy holy word.

58With my whole heart I did entreat

thy face and favour free:

According to thy gracious word

be merciful to me.

59I thought upon my former ways,

and did my life well try;

And to thy testimonies pure

my feet then turned I.

60I did not stay, nor linger long,

as those that slothful are;

But hastily thy laws to keep

myself I did prepare.

61Bands of ill men me robb’d; yet I

thy precepts did not slight.

62I’ll rise at midnight thee to praise,

ev’n for thy judgments right.

63I am companion to all those

who fear, and thee obey.

64O Lord, thy mercy fills the earth:

teach me thy laws, I pray.
