Representative Text

65 Well hast thou with thy servant dealt,
as thou didst promise give.
66 Good judgment me, and knowledge teach,
for I thy word believe.

67 Ere I afflicted was I stray’d;
but now I keep thy word.
68 Both good thou art, and good thou do’st:
teach me thy statutes, Lord.

69 The men that are puff ‘d up with pride
against me forg’d a lie;
Yet thy commandements observe
with my whole heart will I.

70 Their hearts, through worldly ease and wealth,
as fat as grease they be:
But in thy holy law I take
delight continually.

71 It hath been very good for me
that I afflicted was,
That I might well instructed be,
and learn thy holy laws.

72 The word that cometh from thy mouth
is better unto me
Than many thousands and great sums
of gold and silver be.
