Mission of St. Clare logo Psalm 119:25-48

Adhaesit pavimento

My soul cleaveth to the dust;
O quicken thou me, according to thy word.

I have acknowledged my ways, and thou heardest me;
O teach me thy statutes.

Make me to understand the way of thy commandments, and so shall I talk of thy wondrous works.

My soul melteth away for very heaviness;
comfort thou me according unto thy word.

Take from me the way of lying, and cause thou me to make much of thy law.

I have chosen the way of truth, and thy judgements have I laid before me.

I have stuck unto thy testimonies;
O Lord, confound me not.

I will run the way of thy commandments, when thou hast set my heart at liberty.

Legem pone

Teach me, O Lord, the way of thy statutes, and I shall keep it unto the end.

Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law;
yea, I shall keep it with my whole heart.

Make me to go in the path of thy commandments;
for therein is my desire. Incline my heart unto thy testimonies, and not to covetousness. O turn away mine eyes, lest they behold vanity;
and quicken thou me in thy way.

O stablish thy word in thy servant, that I may fear thee.

Take away the rebuke that I am afraid of;
for thy judgements are good.

Behold, my delight is in thy commandments;
O quicken me in thy righteousness.

Et veniat super me

Let thy loving mercy come also unto me, O Lord, even thy salvation, according unto thy word.

So shall I make answer unto my blasphemers;
for my trust is in thy word.

O take not the word of thy truth utterly out of my mouth;
for my hope is in thy judgements.

So shall I always keep thy law, yea, for ever and ever.

And I will walk at liberty;
for I seek thy commandments. I will speak of thy testimonies also, even before kings, and will not be ashamed.

And my delight shall be in thy commandments, which I have loved.

My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments, which I have loved;
and my study shall be in thy statutes. leaf
