Psalter manuscript

Psalm 119 – TETH: Deal with me Your servant


Deal with me Your servant
According to Your word;
True knowledge and good judgment plant
Within my heart, O Lord.

Till I was afflicted
Corrupt I went astray,
But now I keep Your every word
And glory in Your way.

Foes conspire against me;
Their words deceit betray,
But I will keep Your every word
And walk the narrow way.

Grease pervades their thinking,
Their words are oily-smooth;
But thought that’s truly sanctified
Must all Your law approve.

Good was my affliction
Tight within Your hold,
For now Your Word means more to me
Than treasures of pure gold.
