83 For I am become like a botell in ye smoke, yet do not I forget thy statutes. 84 How many are the dayes of thy seruaunt? Whe wilt thou be auenged of my aduersaries? 85 The proude haue dygged pittes for me, which are not after thy lawe. 86 All thy commaundemetes are true, they persecute me falsly, O be thou my helpe. 87 They haue almost made an ende of me vpon earth, but I forsake not thy commaundemetes. 88 O quycke me after yi louinge kyndnes, & so shall I kepe the testimonies of thy mouth. 89 O LORDE, thy worde endureth for euer in heaue. 90 Thy treuth also remayneth from one generacion to another: thou hast layed the foundacion of the earth, and it abydeth. 91 They cotinue this daye acordinge to thy ordinaunce, for all thinges serue the. 92 Yf my delyte were not in thy lawe, I shulde perishe in my trouble. 93 I wil neuer forget thy comaundementes, for with the thou quyckenest me. 94 I am thine, oh helpe me, for I seke thy commaundementes. 95 The vngodly laye wayte for me to destroye me, but I considre thy testimonies. 96 I se that all thinges come to an ende, but thy commaundemet is exceadinge brode. 97 O what a loue haue I vnto thy lawe? all the daye longe is my talkynge of it. 98 Thou thorow thy commaundement hast made me wyser the myne enemies, for it is euer by me. 99 I haue more vnderstondinge then all my teachers, for thy testimonies are my studye. 100 Yee I am wyser then the aged, for I kepe thy comaundementes. 101 I refrayne my fete from euery euell waye, that I maye kepe thy wordes. 102 I shrenck not from thy iudgmentes, for thou teachest me. 103 O how swete are thy wordes vnto my throte?

thy iudgmetes. 121 I deale wt the thinge yt is laufull & right, O geue me not ouer vnto my oppressours. 122 Be thou suertie for thy seruaut to do him good, that the proude do me no wronge. 123 Myne

LORDE) & true is yi iudgmet. 138 The testimonies that thou hast commauded, are exceadinge rightuous and true. 139 My zele hath euen consumed me, because myne enemies haue forgotten thy wordes. 140 Thy
