^129Thy statutes, Lord, are wonderful,
my soul them keeps with care.
^130The entrance of thy words gives light,
makes wise who simple are.
^131My mouth I have wide opened,
and panted earnestly,
While after thy commandements
I long'd exceedingly.
^132Look on me, Lord, and merciful
do thou unto me prove,
As thou art wont to do to those
thy name who truly love.
^133O let my footsteps in thy word
aright still order'd be:
Let no iniquity obtain
dominion over me.
^134From man's oppression save thou me;
so keep thy laws I will.
^135Thy face make on thy servant shine;
teach me thy statutes still.
^136Rivers of waters from mine eyes
did run down, when I saw
How wicked men run on in sin,
and do not keep thy law.
