My soul to dust cleaves: quicken me

25 My soul to dust cleaves: quicken me,
according to thy word.
26 My ways I shew’d, and me thou heard’st:
teach me thy statutes, Lord.

27 The way of thy commandements
make me aright to know;
So all thy works that wondrous are
I shall to others show.

28 My soul doth melt, and drop away,
for heaviness and grief:
To me, according to thy word,
give strength, and send relief.

29 From me the wicked way of lies
let far removed be;
And graciously thy holy law
do thou grant unto me.

30 I chosen have the perfect way
of truth and verity:
Thy judgments that most righteous are
before me laid have I.

31 I to thy testimonies cleave;
shame do not on me cast.
32 I’ll run thy precepts’ way, when thou
my heart enlarged hast.
