79b. Psalm 119

1 Teach me, O Lord, the perfect way
of thy precepts divine,
and to observe it to the end
I shall my heart incline.

2 Give understanding unto me,
so keep thy law shall I;
yea, even with my whole heart I shall
observe it carefully.

3 In thy law's path make me to go;
for I delight therein.
My heart unto thy testimonies,
and not to greed, incline.

4 Turn thou away my sight and eyes
from viewing vanity;
and in thy good and holy way
be pleased to quicken me.

5 Confirm to me thy gracious word,
which I did gladly hear,
even to thy servant, Lord, for I
thy holy name revere.

6 Turn thou away my feared reproach;
for good thy judgments be.
Lo, for thy precepts I have longed;
in thy truth quicken me.
