^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.
