25My soul cleaveth unto the dust: quicken thou me according to thy word.

 26I have declared my ways, and thou heardest me: teach me thy statutes.

 27Make me to understand the way of thy precepts: so shall I talk of thy wondrous works.

 28My soul melteth for heaviness: strengthen thou me according unto thy word.

 29Remove from me the way of lying: and grant me thy law graciously.

 30I have chosen the way of truth: thy judgments have I laid before me.

 31I have stuck unto thy testimonies: O LORD, put me not to shame.

 32I will run the way of thy commandments, when thou shalt enlarge my heart.

 33Teach me, O LORD, the way of thy statutes; and I shall keep it unto the end.

 34Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law; yea, I shall observe it with my whole heart.

 35Make me to go in the path of thy commandments; for therein do I delight.

 36Incline my heart unto thy testimonies, and not to covetousness.

 37Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity; and quicken thou me in thy way.

 38Stablish thy word unto thy servant, who is devoted to thy fear.

 39Turn away my reproach which I fear: for thy judgments are good.

 40Behold, I have longed after thy precepts: quicken me in thy righteousness.

 41Let thy mercies come also unto me, O LORD, even thy salvation, according to thy word.

 42So shall I have wherewith to answer him that reproacheth me: for I trust in thy word.

 43And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth; for I have hoped in thy judgments.

 44So shall I keep thy law continually for ever and ever.

 45And I will walk at liberty: for I seek thy precepts.

 46I will speak of thy testimonies also before kings, and will not be ashamed.

 47And I will delight myself in thy commandments, which I have loved.

 48My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments, which I have loved; and I will meditate in thy statutes.
