Mission of St. Clare logo Psalm 119:121-144

Feci judicium

I deal with the thing that is lawful and right;
O give me not over unto mine oppressors.

Be thou surety for thy servant to do him good, that the proud do me no wrong.

Mine eyes are wasted away with looking for thy health, and for the word of thy righteousness.

O deal with thy servant according unto thy loving mercy, and teach me thy statutes.

I am thy servant; O grant me understanding, that I may know thy testimonies. It is time for thee, Lord, to lay to thine hand;
for they have destroyed thy law.

For I love thy commandments above gold and precious stones.

Therefore hold I straight all thy commandments; and all false ways I utterly abhor.

Mirabilia

Thy testimonies are wonderful;
therefore doth my soul keep them.

When thy word goeth forth, it giveth light and understanding unto the simple.

I opened my mouth, and drew in my breath;
for my delight was in thy commandments. O look thou upon me, and be merciful unto me, as thou usest to do unto those that love thy Name.

Order my steps in thy word;
and so shall no wickedness have dominion over me.

O deliver me from the wrongful dealings of men; and so shall I keep thy commandments.

Show the light of thy countenance upon thy servant, and teach me thy statutes. Mine eyes gush out with water, because men keep not thy law

Justus es, Domine

Righteous art thou, O Lord;
and true is thy judgement. The testimonies that thou hast commanded are exceeding righteous and true.

My zeal hath even consumed me, because mine enemies have forgotten thy words.

Thy word is tried to the uttermost, and thy servant loveth it.

I am small, and of no reputation;
yet do I not forget thy commandments.

Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law is the truth.

Trouble and heaviness have taken hold upon me; yet is my delight in thy commandments.

The righteousness of thy testimonies is everlasting;
O grant me understanding, and I shall live.
