Psalm 119

Lucerna pedibus meis

  1. THY word is a lantern unto my feet: and a light unto my paths.
  2. I have sworn, and am stedfastly purposed: to keep thy righteous judgements.
  3. I am troubled above measure: quicken me, O Lord, according to thy word.
  4. Let the free-will offerings of my mouth please thee, O Lord: and teach me thy judgements.
  5. My soul is alway in my hand: yet do I not forget thy law.
  6. The ungodly have laid a snare for me: but yet I swerved not from thy commandments.
  7. Thy testimonies have I claimed as mine heritage for ever: and why? they are the very joy of my heart.
  8. I have applied my heart to fulfil thy statutes alway: even unto the end.

Iniquos odio habui

  1. I HATE them that imagine evil things: but thy law do I love.
  2. Thou art my defence and shield: and my trust is in thy word.
  3. Away from me, ye wicked: I will keep the commandments of my God.
  4. O stablish me according to thy word, that I may live: and let me not be disappointed of my hope.
  5. Hold thou me up, and I shall be safe: yea, my delight shall be ever in thy statutes.
  6. Thou hast trodden down all them that depart from thy statutes: for they imagine but deceit.
  7. Thou puttest away all the ungodly of the earth like dross: therefore I love thy testimonies.
  8. My flesh trembleth for fear of thee: and I am afraid of thy judgements.

Feci judicium

  1. I DEAL with the thing that is lawful and right: O give me not over unto mine oppressors.
  2. Make thou thy servant to delight in that which is good: that the proud do me no wrong.
  3. Mine eyes are wasted away with looking for thy health: and for the word of thy righteousness.
  4. O deal with thy servant according unto thy loving mercy: and teach me thy statutes.
  5. I am thy servant, O grant me understanding: that I may know thy testimonies.
  6. It is time for thee, Lord, to lay to thine hand: for they have destroyed thy law.
  7. For I love thy commandments: above gold and precious stone.
  8. Therefore hold I straight all thy commandments: and all false ways I utterly abhor.


  1. THY testimonies are wonderful: therefore doth my soul keep them.
  2. When thy word goeth forth: it giveth light and understanding unto the simple.
  3. I opened my mouth, and drew in my breath: for my delight was in thy commandments.
  4. O look thou upon me, and be merciful unto me: as thou usest to do unto those that love thy Name.
  5. Order my steps in thy word: and so shall no wickedness have dominion over me.
  6. O deliver me from the wrongful dealings of men: and so shall I keep thy commandments.
  7. Shew the light of thy countenance upon thy servant: and teach me thy statutes.
  8. Mine eyes gush out with water: because men keep not thy law.

Justus es, Domine

  1. RIGHTEOUS art thou, O Lord: and true is thy judgement.
  2. The testimonies that thou hast commanded: are exceeding righteous and true.
  3. My zeal hath even consumed me: because mine enemies have forgotten thy words.
  4. Thy word is tried to the uttermost: and thy servant loveth it.
  5. I am small, and of no reputation: yet do I not forget thy commandments.
  6. Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness: and thy law is the truth.
  7. Trouble and heaviness have taken hold upon me: yet is my delight in thy commandments.
  8. The righteousness of thy testimonies is everlasting: O grant me understanding, and I shall live.
