33 Teach me, O Lord, the perfect way
of thy precepts divine,
And to observe it to the end
I shall my heart incline.

34 Give understanding unto me,
so keep thy law shall I;
Yea, ev’n with my whole heart I shall
observe it carefully.

35 In thy law’s path make me to go;
for I delight therein.
36 My heart unto thy testimonies,
and not to greed, incline.

37 Turn thou away my sight and eyes
from viewing vanity;
And in thy good and holy way
be pleas’d to quicken me.

38 Confirm to me thy gracious word,
which I did gladly hear,
Ev’n to thy servant, Lord, who is
devoted to thy fear.

39 Turn thou away my fear’d reproach;
for good thy judgments be.
40 Lo, for thy precepts I have long’d;
in thy truth quicken me.

Scottish Psalter and Paraphrases, 1787
