Psalm 119 - 9 (Teth)
ST. HUGH | Common Meter (8,6,8,6)
1650 Scottish Psalter
Edward John Hopkins, 1818-1901
65 Well hast thou with thy servant dealt, as thou didst promise give. 66 Good judgment me, and knowledge teach, for I thy word believe. 67 Ere I afflicted was I strayed; but now I keep thy word. 68 Both good thou art, and good thou do'st: teach me thy statutes, Lord. 69 The men that are puffed up with pride against me forged a lie; Yet thy commandements observe with my whole heart will I. 70 Their hearts, through worldly ease and wealth, as fat as grease they be: But in thy holy law I take delight continually. 71 It hath been very good for me that I afflicted was, That I might well instructed be, and learn thy holy laws. 72 The word that cometh from thy mouth is better unto me Than many thousands and great sums of gold and silver be.
