161 Princes have persecuted me,
although no cause they saw:
but still of thy most holy word
my heart doth stand in awe.
162 I at thy word rejoice, as one
of spoil that finds great store.
163 They law I love; but lying all
I hate and do abhor.
164 Seven times a-day it is my care
to give due praise to thee;
because of all thy judgments, Lord,
which righteous ever be.
165 Great peace have they who love thy law;
offence they shall have none
166 I hoped for thy salvation, Lord,
and thy commands have done.
167 My soul thy testimonies pure
on them my heart is set, and them
I love exceedingly.
168 Thy testimonies and thy laws
I kept with special care;
for all my works and ways each one
before thee open are.
