148Mine eyes anticipated the night-watches, That I might meditate on thy word.
149Hear my voice according unto thy lovingkindness: Quicken me, O Jehovah, according to thine ordinances.

160The sum of thy word is truth; And every one of thy righteous ordinances endureth for ever.
161SHIN. Princes have persecuted me without a cause; But my heart standeth in awe of thy words.

164Seven times a day do I praise thee, Because of thy righteous ordinances.
165Great peace have they that love thy law; And they have no occasion of stumbling.
