My souls seeks your salvation
For in your word, I hope.
My eyes seek your promise
Saying, when you will comfort me?
Though I have become like a wineskin in smoke
I do not forget your statutes.
How long the days of your servant!
When will your justice be done to my pursuers?
The mockers have dug a pit for me
Despite your law.
All your commandments are truefirm
-By lies they pursue me: Save me!
They have almost made an end of me on earth
Yet I will not abandon your statutes.
According to your steadfast love make me live
For I will keep the testimonies of your mouth.
