From the Great Bible, 1540 edition (known as Cranmer's Bible). Set in the Book of Common Prayer, 1662, for Evening Prayer on the twenty-sixth day of the month.

Vide humilitatem.

O comsider mine adversity, and deliver me : for I do not forget thy law.
154 Avenge thou my cause, and deliver me : quicken me, according to thy word.
155 Health is far from the ungodly : for they regard not thy statutes.
156 Great is thy mercy, O Lord : quicken me, as thou art wont.
157 Many there are that trouble me, and persecute me : yet do I not swerve from thy testimonies.
158 It grieveth me when I see the transgressors : because they keep not thy law.
159 Consider, O Lord, how I love thy commandments : O quicken me, according to thy loving-kindness.
160 Thy word is true from everlasting : all the judgements of thy righteousness endure for evermore.

From the Vulgate, where it is listed, according to the Catholic manner, as Psalm 118.:

Vide adflictionem meam et eripe me quia legis tuae non sum oblitus.
Iudica causam meam et redime me sermone tuo vivifica me.
Longe ab impiis salus quia praecepta tua non quaesierunt.
Misericordiae tuae multae Domine iuxta iudicia tua vivifica me.
Multi qui persequuntur me et adfligunt me a testimoniis tuis non declinavi.
Vidi praevaricatores tuos et maerebam qui verbum tuum non custodierunt.
Vide quoniam praecepta tua dilexi Domine iuxta misericordiam tuam vivifica me.
Caput verborum tuorum veritas et sempiternum omne iudicium iustitiae tuae.

The psalm in either case may be followed by the Gloria Patri.
