145 With my swhole heart I cry; answer me, O Lord!
I will tkeep your statutes.
146 I call to you; save me,
that I may observe your testimonies.
147 I rise before udawn and cry for help;
I vhope in your words.
148 My eyes are awake before wthe watches of the night,
that I may meditate on your promise.
149 Hear my voice according to your steadfast love;
150 They draw near who persecute me with evil purpose;
they are far from your law.
151 But zyou are near, O Lord,
and all your commandments are atrue.
152 Long have I known from your testimonies
that you have bfounded them forever.
The Lord Reigns
2 iYour throne is established from of old;
jyou are from everlasting.
3 kThe floods have lifted up, O Lord,
the floods have lifted up their voice;
the floods lift up their roaring.
4 Mightier than the thunders of many waters,
mightier than the waves of the sea,
5 Your ndecrees are very trustworthy;
oholiness befits your house,
O Lord, forevermore.
