X. Manus tuae fecerunt me.

  1. THY hands have made me and fashioned me: *
    O give me understanding, that I may learn thy commandments.
  2. They that fear thee will be glad when they see me; *
    because I have put my trust in thy word.
  3. I know, O Lord, that thy judgments are right, *
    and that thou of very faithfulness hast caused me to be troubled.
  4. O let thy merciful kindness be my comfort, *
    according to thy word unto thy servant.
  5. O let thy loving mercies come unto me, that I may live; *
    for thy law is my delight.
  6. Let the proud be confounded, for they go wickedly about to destroy me; *
    but I will be occupied in thy commandments.
  7. Let such as fear thee, and have known thy testimonies, *
    be turned unto me.
  8. O let my heart be sound in thy statutes, *
    that I be not ashamed.

XI. Defecit anima mea.

  1. MY soul hath longed for thy salvation, *
    and I have a good hope because of thy word.
  2. Mine eyes long sore for thy word; *
    saying, O when wilt thou comfort me?
  3. For I am become like a bottle in the smoke; *
    yet do I not forget thy statutes.
  4. How many are the days of thy servant? *
    when wilt thou be avenged of them that persecute me?
  5. The proud have digged pits for me, *
    which are not after thy law.
  6. All thy commandments are true: *
    they persecute me falsely; O be thou my help.
  7. They had almost made an end of me upon earth; *
    but I forsook not thy commandments.
  8. O quicken me after thy loving-kindness; *
    and so shall I keep the testimonies of thy mouth.

XII. In aeternum, Domine.

  1. LORD, thy word *
    endureth for ever in heaven.
  2. Thy truth also remaineth from one generation to another; *
    thou hast laid the foundation of the earth, and it abideth.
  3. They continue this day according to thine ordinance; *
    for all things serve thee.
  4. If my delight had not been in thy law, *
    I should have perished in my trouble.
  5. I will never forget thy commandments; *
    for with them thou hast quickened me.
  6. I am thine: O save me, *
    for I have sought thy commandments.
  7. The ungodly laid wait for me, to destroy me; *
    but I will consider thy testimonies.
  8. I see that all things come to an end; *
    but thy commandment is exceeding broad.

XIII. Quomodo dilexi!

  1. LORD, what love have I unto thy law! *
    all the day long is my study in it.
  2. Thou, through thy commandments, hast made me wiser than mine enemies; *
    for they are ever with me.
  3. I have more understanding than my teachers; *
    for thy testimonies are my study.
  4. I am wiser than the aged; *
    because I keep thy commandments.
  5. I have refrained my feet from every evil way, *
    that I may keep thy word.
  6. I have not shrunk from thy judgments; *
    for thou teachest me.
  7. O how sweet are thy words unto my throat; *
    yea, sweeter than honey unto my mouth!
  8. Through thy commandments I get understanding: *
    therefore I hate all evil ways.
