Psalm 119 - 9 (Teth)
ST. HUGH | Bible Passage
EDWARD JOHN HOPKINS, 1818-1901
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 strayed;
But now I keep thy word.
68 Good art thou, and thou doest good:
Teach me thy statutes, Lord.
69 The men that are puffed up with pride
Against me forged a lie;
But as for me, thy precepts keep
With all my heart will I.
70 Their hearts, through worldly ease and wealth,
As fat as grease they be;
But in thy holy law I take
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.
65 ¬∂ TETH. Thou hast dealt well with thy servant, O LORD, according unto thy word.
66 Teach me good judgment and knowledge: for I have believed thy commandments.
67 ¬∂ Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word.
68 ¬∂ Thou art good, and doest good; teach me thy statutes.
69 ¬∂ The proud have forged a lie against me: but I will keep thy precepts with my whole heart.
70 Their heart is as fat as grease; but I delight in thy law.
71 ¬∂ It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn thy statutes.
72 ¬∂ The law of thy mouth is better unto me than thousands of gold and silver.
