121 To all men I have judgment done, performing justice right; Then let me not be left unto my fierce oppressors' might. 122 For good unto thy servant, Lord, thy servant's surety be: From the oppression of the proud do thou deliver me. 123 Mine eyes do fail with looking long for thy salvätion, The word of thy pure righteousness while I do wait upon. 124 In mercy with thy servant deal, thy laws me teach and show. 125 I am thy servant, wisdom give, that I thy laws may know. 126 'Tis time thou work, Lord; for they have made void thy law divine. 127 Therefore thy precepts more I love than gold, yea, gold most fine. 128 Concerning all things thy commands all right I judge therefore; And ev'ry false and wicked way I perfectly abhor.
