^153Consider mine affliction,
in safety do me set:
Deliver me, O Lord, for I
thy law do not forget.
^154After thy word revive thou me:
save me, and plead my cause.
^155Salvation is from sinners far;
for they seek not thy laws.
^156O Lord, both great and manifold
thy tender mercies be:
According to thy judgments just,
revive and quicken me.
^157My persecutors many are,
and foes that do combine;
Yet from thy testimonies pure
my heart doth not decline.
^158I saw transgressors, and was griev'd;
for they keep not thy word.
^159See how I love thy law! as thou
art kind, me quicken, Lord.
^160From the beginning all thy word
hath been most true and sure:
Thy righteous judgments ev'ry one
for evermore endure.
