Your Word Is a Lamp to My Feet

1Blessed are those yt be vndefiled in the waye: which walke in the lawe of ye LORDE.

2Blessed are they that kepe his testimonies, & seke him with their whole herte.

3Which walke in his wayes, & do no wickednesse.

4Thou hast geuen strayte charge to kepe thy commaundementes.

5O that my wayes were stablished to kepe thy statutes.

6So shulde I not be confounded, whyle I haue respecte vnto all thy commaundementes.

7I wil thanke the with an vnfayned herte, because I am lerned in the iudgmentes of thy rightuousnesse.

8I wil kepe thy statutes, o forsake me not vtterly.

9Where withall shall a yonge man clense his waye? Euen by rulinge himself after thy worde.

10With my whole herte do I seke ye, O let me not go wronge out of thy comaundemetes.

11Thy wordes haue I hyd within my herte, yt I shulde not synne agaynst the.

12Praysed be thou O LORDE, O teach me thy statutes.

13With my lippes wil I be tellynge out all the iudgmentes of thy mouth.

14I haue as greate delite in the waye of thy testimonies, as in all maner of riches.

15I wil exercise my self in thy comaundementes, & haue respecte vnto thy fotepathes.

16My delite shalbe in thy statutes, I will not forget thy wordes.

17O do well vnto thy seruaunt, that I maye lyue and kepe thy wordes.

18Open thou myne eyes, & so shal I spie out wonderous thinges in yi lawe.

19I am a strauger vpo earth, O hyde not thy commaundementes fro me.

20My soule breaketh out, for the very feruent desyre that I haue allwaye vnto thy iudgmentes.

21Thou rebukest the proude, cursed are they that departe from thy commaundemetes

22O turne fro me shame & rebuke, for I kepe thy testimonies.

23Prynces also syt & speake agaynst me, but thy seruaut is occupied in thy statutes.

24In thy testimonies is my delite, they are my councelers.

25My soule cleueth to the dust, O quicken thou me acordinge to thy worde.

26I knowleged my wayes, & thou herdest me, O teach me then thy statutes.

27Make me to vnderstonde the waye of thy commaundemetes, & so shal I talke of thy wonderous workes.

28My soule melteth awaye for very heuynesse, o set me vp acordinge vnto thy worde.

29Take fro me the waye of lyenge, & graunte me thy lawe.

30I haue chosen the waye of treuth, thy iudgmentes haue I layed before me.

31I sticke vnto thy testimonies, o LORDE cofounde me not.

32I wil rune the waye of thy commaundementes, when thou hast comforted my herte.

33Teach me o LORDE the waye of thy statutes, and I shal kepe it vnto the ende.

34O geue me vnderstondinge, and I shal kepe yi lawe, yee I shal kepe it with my whole herte.

35Lede me in the path of thy commaundemetes, for that is my desyre,

36Enclyne myne herte vnto thy testimonies, & not to cuvetousnes.

37O turne awaye myne eyes, lest they beholde vanite, & quicke me in thy waie.

38O stablish thy worde in thy seruaunt, yt I maye feare the.

39Take awaye the rebuke yt I am afraied of, for thy iudgmetes are amiable.

40Beholde, my delite is in thy commaudemetes, o quycke me in thy rightuousnesse.

41Let thy louynge mercy come vnto me (o LORDE) and thy sauynge health acordinge vnto thy worde.

42That I maye geue answere vnto my blasphemers, for my trust is in yi worde.

43O take not ye worde of treuth vtterly out of my mouth, for my hope is in thy iudgmentes.

44So shal I allwaye kepe thy lawe, yee for euer and euer.

45And I wil walke at liberty, for I seke thy commaundementes.

46I wil speake of thy testimonies euen before kynges, and wil not be ashamed.

47My delite shalbe in thy commaundementes, which I loue.

48My hondes also will I lift vp vnto thy commaundemetes which I loue, & my talkynge shalbe of thy statutes.

49O thynke vpon thy seruaunt as concernynge yi worde, wherin thou hast caused me to put my trust.

50For it is my comforte in my trouble, yee thy worde quyckeneth me.

51The proude haue me greatly in derision, yet shrencke not I from thy lawe.

52I remembre thy euerlastinge iudgmentes (o LORDE) and am comforted.

53I am horribly afrayed for ye vngodly, that forsake thy lawe.

54Thy statutes are my songes in the house of my pilgremage.

55I thynke vpon thy name (o LORDE) in the night season, and kepe thy lawe.

56It is myne owne, for I kepe thy commaundementes.

57Thou art my porcion (o LORDE) I am purposed to kepe thy lawe.

58I make myne humble peticion in thy presence wt my whole herte, o be mercifull vnto me acordinge vnto yi worde.

59I call myne owne wayes to remembraunce, and turne my fete in to thy testimonies.

60I make haist, and prolonge not the tyme, to kepe thy commaundemetes.

61The congregacions of the vngodly haue robbed me, but I forget not thy lawe.

62At mydnight stonde I vp, to geue thakes vnto the, for the iudgmentes of thy rightuousnesse.

63I am a companyon of all them that feare the, and kepe thy commaundementes.

64The earth (o LORDE) is full of thy mercy, O teach me thy statutes.

65O LORDE, thou hast dealt frendly with thy seruaunt, acordinge vnto thy worde.

66O lerne me kyndnesse, nourtoure & knowlege, for I beleue thy commaundementes.

67Before I was troubled, I wente wronge, but now I kepe thy worde.

68Thou art good and frendly, O teach me thy statutes.

69The proude ymagin lyes vpon me, but I kepe thy commaundemetes with my whole herte.

70Their herte is as fat as brawne, but my delite is in thy lawe.

71It is good for me that I haue bene in trouble, that I maye lerne thy statutes.

72The lawe of thy mouth is dearer vnto me, the thousandes of golde & syluer.

73Thy hades haue made me and fashioned me, O geue me vnderstondinge, that I maye lerne thy commaundementes.

74They that feare the, wil be glad when they se me, because I put my trust in thy worde.

75I knowe (o LORDE) yt thy iudgmentes are right, and yt thou of very faithfulnesse hast caused me be troubled.

76O let thy mercifull kyndnesse be my comforte, acordinge to the promyse that thou hast made vnto thy seruaunt.

77O let thy louynge mercies come vnto me, that I maye lyue, for thy lawe is my delyte.

78Let the proude be confounded, which handle so falsly agaynst me.

79But let soch as feare the, & knowe thy testimonies, be turned vnto me.

80O let my herte be vndefyled in thy statutes, that I be not ashamed.

81My soule longeth for thy sauynge health, for my trust is in thy worde.

82Myne eyes loge sore for thy worde, sayege: Oh when wilt thou coforte me?

83For I am become like a botell in ye smoke, yet do not I forget thy statutes.

84How many are the dayes of thy seruaunt? Whe wilt thou be auenged of my aduersaries?

85The proude haue dygged pittes for me, which are not after thy lawe.

86All thy commaundemetes are true, they persecute me falsly, O be thou my helpe.

87They haue almost made an ende of me vpon earth, but I forsake not thy commaundemetes.

88O quycke me after yi louinge kyndnes, & so shall I kepe the testimonies of thy mouth.

89O LORDE, thy worde endureth for euer in heaue.

90Thy treuth also remayneth from one generacion to another: thou hast layed the foundacion of the earth, and it abydeth.

91They cotinue this daye acordinge to thy ordinaunce, for all thinges serue the.

92Yf my delyte were not in thy lawe, I shulde perishe in my trouble.

93I wil neuer forget thy comaundementes, for with the thou quyckenest me.

94I am thine, oh helpe me, for I seke thy commaundementes.

95The vngodly laye wayte for me to destroye me, but I considre thy testimonies.

96I se that all thinges come to an ende, but thy commaundemet is exceadinge brode.

97O what a loue haue I vnto thy lawe? all the daye longe is my talkynge of it.

98Thou thorow thy commaundement hast made me wyser the myne enemies, for it is euer by me.

99I haue more vnderstondinge then all my teachers, for thy testimonies are my studye.

100Yee I am wyser then the aged, for I kepe thy comaundementes.

101I refrayne my fete from euery euell waye, that I maye kepe thy wordes.

102I shrenck not from thy iudgmentes, for thou teachest me.

103O how swete are thy wordes vnto my throte? Yee more the hony vnto my mouth.

104Thorow thy commaundementes I get vnderstondinge, therfore I hate all false wayes.

105Thy worde is a lanterne vnto my fete & a light vnto my pathes.

106I haue sworne & am sted fastly purposed, to kepe the iudgmetes of thy rightuousnesse.

107I am troubled aboue measure, quycken me (o LORDE) acordinge vnto thy worde.

108Let the frewil offeringes of my mouth please the (o LORDE) & teach me yi iudgmetes.

109My soule is allwaye in my hode, yet do not I forget thy lawe.

110The vngodly haue laied a snare for me, but yet swarue not I fro thy comaundemetes.

111Thy testimonies haue I claymed as myne heretage for euer: & why? they are the very ioye of my herte.

112I applye myne herte to fulfill thy statutes all waye, euen vnto the ende.

113I hate ye vngodly, but thy lawe do I loue.

114Thou art my defence & shylde, my trust is in thy worde.

115Awaye fro me ye wicked, I wil kepe the commaundementes of my God.

116O stablish me acordinge vnto thy worde, yt I maye lyue, & let me not be disapoynted of my hope.

117Holde thou me vp, & I shall be safe: yee I shal euer be talkynge of thy statutes.

118Thou treadest downe all the yt departe from thy statutes, for they ymagin but disceate.

119Thou puttest awaye all the vngodly of the earth like drosse, therfore I loue thy testimonies.

120My flesh trebleth for feare of the, and I am afrayed of thy iudgmetes.

121I deale wt the thinge yt is laufull & right, O geue me not ouer vnto my oppressours.

122Be thou suertie for thy seruaut to do him good, that the proude do me no wronge.

123Myne eyes are waysted awaye wt lokynge for thy health, & for ye worde of thy rightuousnesse.

124O deale with thy seruaunt acordinge vnto thy louynge mercy, and teach me thy statutes.

125I am thy seruaunt, O graunte me vnderstodinge, that I maye knowe thy testimonies.

126It is tyme for the (o LORDE) to laye to thine hode, for they haue destroyed thy lawe.

127For I loue thy comaundemetes aboue golde and precious stone.

128Therfore holde I straight all thy commaundemetes, and all false wayes I vtterly abhorre.

129Thy testimonies are wonderfull, therfore doth my soule kepe them.

130When thy worde goeth forth, it geueth light and vnderstodinge, eue vnto babes.

131I ope my mouth & drawe in my breth, for I desyre thy commaundemetes.

132O loke thou vpon me, and be mercyfull, as thou vsest to do vnto those yt loue yi name.

133Ordre my goinges after thy worde, that no wickednesse raigne in me.

134O delyuer me from the wrogeous dealinges of me, and so shal I kepe thy commaundemetes.

135Shewe the light of thy countenaunce vnto thy seruaunt, and lerne me thy statutes.

136Myne eyes gusshe out with water, because men kepe not thy lawe.

137Rightuous art thou (o LORDE) & true is yi iudgmet.

138The testimonies that thou hast commauded, are exceadinge rightuous and true.

139My zele hath euen consumed me, because myne enemies haue forgotten thy wordes.

140Thy worde is tried to the vttermost, & thy seruaunte loueth it.

141I am small and of no reputacio, yet do not I forget thy comaudementes.

142Thy rightuousnesse is an euerlastinge rightuousnes, and thy lawe is true.

143Trouble and heuynesse haue take holde vpo me, yet is my delite in thy commaundementes.

144The rightuousnes of thy testimonies is euerlastinge, o graunte me vnderstondinge, and I shal lyue.

145I call wt my whole herte, heare me (o LORDE) I wil kepe thy statutes.

146Yee euen vpo the do I call, helpe me, and I shal kepe yi testimonies.

147Early in ye mornynge do I crie vnto the, for in thy worde is my trust.

148Myne eyes preuete ye night watches, yt I might be occupied in thy wordes.

149Heare my voyce (o LORDE) acordige vnto thy louynge kyndnesse, quycke me acordige as thou art wot.

150They drawe nye yt of malice persecute me, & are farre fro yi lawe.

151Be thou nye at hode also (o LORDE) for thy promises are faithfull.

152As concernynge thy testimonies, I haue knowne euer sens the begynnynge, that thou hast grounded them for euer.

153O considre my aduersite, & delyuer me, for I do not forget thy lawe.

154Manteyne thou my cause and defende me, quycken me acordinge vnto thy worde.

155Health is farre fro the vngodly, for they regarde not thy statutes.

156Greate is thy mercy (o LORDE) quycken me as thou art wont.

157Many there are that trouble me, and persecute me, yet do not I swarue fro thy testimonies.

160Thy worde is true from euerlastinge, all the iudgmentes of thy rightuousnesse endure for euermore.

161The prynces persecute me without cause, but my herte stodeth in awe of thy wordes.

162I am as glad of thy worde, as one yt fyndeth greate spoyles.

163As for lyes, I hate & abhorre them, but thy lawe do I loue

164Seuen tymes a daye do I prayse the, because of thy rightuous iudgmentes.
