25 My soul to dust cleaves; quicken me,
According to thy word.
26 My ways I showed, and me thou heard'st;
Teach me thy statutes, Lord.
27 The way of thy commandments teach,
And make me well to know;
So all thy works that wondrous are
I shall to others show.
28 My soul doth melt, and drop away,
For heaviness and grief:
To me, according to thy word,
Give strength and send relief.
29 O let the way of falsehood far
From me removed be;
And graciously thy holy law
Do thou grant unto me.
30 I chosen have the perfect way
Of truth and verity:
Thy judgments that most righteous are
Before me laid have I.
31 I to thy testimonies cleave;
Shame do not on me cast.
32 I'll run thy precepts' way, for thou
My heart enlarged hast.
