TSADDI THE EIGHTEENTH PART

137 O Lord, thou ever righteous art;
thy judgments upright be.
138 Ordained thy testimonies are
in faithfulness by thee.
139 My zeal hath even consumed me,
because mine enemies
thy holy words forgotten have,
and do thy laws despise.

140 Thy word is very pure, on it
thy servant's love is set.
141 Small and despised I am, yet I
thy laws do not forget.
142 Thy righteousness is righteousness
which ever doth endure;
thy holy law, Lord, also is
the very truth most pure.

143 Distress and anguish have me found,
fast hold on me they take:
yet in my trouble my delight
I thy commandments make.
144 Eternal righteousness is in
thy testimonies all:
give understanding unto me,
and ever live I shall.
