76 Let, I pray thee, thy merciful kindness be "for my comfort,

According to thy word unto thy servant.

For thy law is my delight.

78 Let the proud be ashamed; for they dealt perversely with me without a cause:

But I will meditate in thy precepts.

79 Let those that fear thee turn unto me,

And those that have known thy testimonies.

80 Let my heart be sound in thy statutes, That I be not ashamed.

Saying, When wilt thou comfort me?

83 For I am become like a bottle in the smoke, Yet do I not forget thy statutes.

When wilt thou execute judgment on them that persecute me?

They persecute me wrongfully; help thou me. 87 They had almost consumed me upon earth, But I forsook not thy precepts.

So shall I keep the testimony of thy mouth.
