Psalm 119Tzaddi, The 18th Part.


137O Lord, thou art most righteous;

thy judgments are upright.

138Thy testimonies thou command’st

most faithful are and right.

139My zeal hath ev’n consumed me,

because mine enemies

Thy holy words forgotten have,

and do thy laws despise.

140Thy word’s most pure, therefore on it

thy servant’s love is set.

141Small, and despis’d I am, yet I

thy precepts not forget.

142Thy righteousness is righteousness

which ever doth endure:

Thy holy law, Lord, also is

the very truth most pure.

143Trouble and anguish have me found,

and taken hold on me:

Yet in my trouble my delight

thy just commandments be.

144Eternal righteousness is in

thy testimonies all:

Lord, to me understanding give,

and ever live I shall.
