NUN THE FOURTEENTH PART

105 Thy word is to my feet a lamp,
and to my path a light.
106 Sworn have I, and I will perform,
to keep thy judgments right.
107 I am afflicted very much
and chastened sore, O Lord:
in mercy raise and quicken me,
according to thy word.

108 The free-will-offerings of my mouth
accept, I thee beseech:
and unto me thy servant, Lord,
thy judgments clearly teach.
109 Though still my soul be in my hand,
thy laws I’ll not forget.
110 I erred not from them, though for me
the wicked snares did set.

111 I of thy testimonies have
above all things made choice,
to be my heritage for aye;
for they my heart rejoice.
112 I carefully inclined have
my heart still to attend;
that thy statutes may perform
alway unto the end.
