1650 Scottish Psalter
George Jackson
1 Blessèd are they that undefiled, and straight are in the way; Who in the Lord's most holy law do walk, and do not stray. 2 Blessèd are they who to observe his statutes are inclined; And who do seek the living God with their whole heart and mind. 3 Such in his ways do walk, and they do no iniquity. 4 Thou hast commanded us to keep thy precepts carefully. 5 O that thy statutes to observe thou would'st my ways direct! 6 Then shall I not be shamed, when I thy precepts all respect. 7 Then with integrity of heart thee will I praise and bless, When I the judgments all have learned of thy pure righteousness. 8 That I will keep thy statutes all firmly resolved have I: O do not then, most gracious God, forsake me utterly.
