129 Thy testimonies are wonderful: therefore doth my soul keep them.
130 The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.
131 I opened my mouth, and panted: for I longed for thy commandments.
132 Look thou upon me, and be merciful unto me, as thou usest to do unto those that love thy name.
133 Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.
134 Deliver me from the oppression of man: so will I keep thy precepts.
135 Make thy face to shine upon thy servant; and teach me thy statutes.
136 Rivers of waters run down mine eyes, because they keep not thy law.
From the Great Bible
edition (known as Cranmer's Bible
). Set in the Book of Common Prayer
, for Morning Prayer

Thy testimonies are wonderful : therefore doth my soul keep them.
130 When thy word goeth forth : it giveth light and understanding
unto the simple.
131 I opened my mouth, and drew in my breath : for my delight was in
132 O look thou upon me, and be merciful unto me : as thou usest to
do unto those that love thy Name.

keep thy commandments.
135 Shew the light of thy countenance upon thy servant : and teach me

From the Vulgate
, where it is listed, according to the Catholic
manner, as Psalm 118
Mirabilia testimonia tua idcirco custodivit ea anima mea.
Ostium sermonum tuorum lucidum doce parvulos.
Os meum aperui et respiravi quia mandata tua desiderabam.
Respice ad me et miserere mei iuxta iudicium diligentium nomen tuum.
Gressus meos firma in sermone tuo et non des potestatem in me universae iniquitati.
Redime me a calumnia hominis et custodiam praecepta tua.
Vultum tuum ostende servo tuo et doce me praecepta tua.
Rivi aquarum fluebant de oculis meis quia non custodierunt legem tuam.
The psalm in either case may be followed by the Gloria Patri
