ח 57. Thou art my portion, O Jehovah! I have said I will keep thy words. ח 58. I have earnestly besought thy face with my whole heart; have mercy upon me
according to thy word. ח 59. I thought upon my ways, and turned my feet unto thy testimonies. ח 60. I made haste, and did not delay to keep thy commandments. ח 61. The cords of the wicked have caught hold of me;
but I did not forget thy law. ח 62. I will rise at midnight to praise thee for thy righteous judgments. ח 63. I am a companion to all those who fear thee, and who keep thy precepts.
ח 64. O Jehovah! the earth is full of thy mercy; teach me thy statutes.
