1650 Scottish Psalter
Richard Farrant, c. 1525-1580 Adapted by John Hilton, d. 1608
161 Princes have persecuted me, although no cause they saw: But still of thy most holy word my heart doth stand in awe. 162 I at thy word rejoice, as one of spoil that finds great store. 163 Thy law I love; but lying all I hate and do abhor. 164 Sev'n times a-day it is my care to give due praise to thee; Because of all thy judgments, Lord, which righteous ever be. 165 Great peace have they who love thy law; offense they shall have none. 166 I hoped for thy salvation, Lord, and thy commands have done. 167 My soul thy testimonies pure observèd carefully; On them my heart is set, and them I love exceedingly. 168 Thy testimonies and thy laws I kept with special care; For all my works and ways each one before thee open are.
