Representative Text


49 The promise keep in mind, which thou
didst to thy servant make,
the word, which as my ground of hope
thou causedst me to take.
50 By this, in time of my distress,
great comfort I have known;
for in my straits I am revived
by this thy word alone.

51 The arrogant and proud of heart
did greatly me deride;
yet from thy good and holy law
I have not turned aside.
52 Thy righteous judgments, which of old
thou didst make known, O Lord,
I have remembered, and to me
they comfort did afford.

53 Horror took hold on me, because
ill men thy law forsake.
54 I in my house of pilgrimage
thy laws my songs do make.
55 Thy name by night, Lord, I did mind,
and I have kept thy law.
56 And this I had, because thy word
I kept, and stood in awe.
