Psalm 119 - 2 (Beth)
ST. PAUL (ABERDEEN) | Bible Passage
Chalmers' Collection, Aberdeen, 1749
9 By what means shall a young man learn
His way to purify?
If he according to thy word
Thereto attentive be.
10 Unfeignedly thee have I sought
With all my soul and heart:
O let me not from the fight path
Of thy commands depart.
11 Thy word I in my heart have hid,
That I offend not thee.
12 O Lord, thou ever blessed art,
Thy statutes teach thou me.
13 The judgments of thy mouth each one
My lips declared have:
14 More joy thy testimonies' way
Than riches all me gave.
15 Thy holy precepts I will make
My meditation still:
And have respect unto thy ways
Most carefully I will.
16 Upon thy statutes my delight
Shall constantly be set:
And, by thy grace, I never will
Thy holy word forget.
9 ¬∂ BETH. Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.
10 ¬∂ With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments.
11 ¬∂ Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
12 ¬∂ Blessed art thou, O LORD: teach me thy statutes.
13 ¬∂ With my lips have I declared all the judgments of thy mouth.
14 I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies, as much as in all riches.
15 I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways.
16 I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word.
