Authorized Version | Psalms | Psalm 119
81 My soul fainteth for thy salvation: but I hope in thy word.
82 Mine eyes fail for thy word, saying, When wilt thou comfort me?
83 For I am become like a bottle in the smoke; yet do I not forget thy statutes.
84 How many are the days of thy servant? when wilt thou execute judgment on them that persecute me?
85 The proud have digged pits for me, which are not after thy law.
86 All thy commandments are faithful: they persecute me wrongfully; help thou me.
87 They had almost consumed me upon earth; but I forsook not thy precepts.
88 Quicken me after thy lovingkindness; so shall I keep the testimony of thy mouth.
From the Great Bible
edition (known as Cranmer's Bible
). Set in the Book of Common Prayer
, for Evening Prayer
on the twenty-fifth day of the month.
Deficit anima mea.
My soul hath longed for thy salvation : and I have a good hope because of thy word.
82 Mine eyes long sore for thy word : saying, O when wilt thou comfort me?
83 For I am become like a bottle in the smoke : yet do I not forget thy statutes.
84 How many are the days of thy servant : when wilt thou be avenged of them that persecute me?
85 The proud have digged pits for me : which are not after thy law.
86 All thy commandments are true : they persecute me falsely; O be thou my help.
87 They had almost made an end of me upon earth : but I forsook not thy commandments.
88 O quicken me after thy loving-kindness : and so shall I keep the testimonies of thy mouth.
From the Vulgate
, where it is listed, according to the Catholic
manner, as Psalm 118
Defecit in salutare tuum anima mea verbum tuum expectavi.
Consumpti sunt oculi mei in verbum tuum dicentes quando consolaberis me.
Et cum essem quasi uter in pruinam praecepta tua non sum oblitus.
Quot sunt dies servi tui quando facies in persequentibus me iudicium.
Foderunt mihi superbi foveas quae non erant iuxta legem tuam.
Omnia mandata tua vera falso persecuti sunt me auxiliare mihi.
Paulo minus consumpserunt me in terra ego autem non dimisi praecepta tua.
Secundum misericordiam tuam vivifica me et custodiam testimonium oris tui.
The psalm in either case may be followed by the Gloria Patri
