78:61 And delivered his strength into captivity, and his glory into the enemy's hand.

78:62 He gave his people over also unto the sword; and was wroth with his inheritance. 78:63 The fire consumed their young men; and their maidens were not given to marriage. 78:64 Their priests fell by the sword; and their widows made no lamentation. 78:65 Then the Lord awaked as one out of sleep, [and] like a mighty man that shouteth by reason of wine. 78:66 And he smote his enemies in the hinder parts: he put them to a perpetual reproach.

78:67 Moreover he refused the tabernacle of Joseph, and chose not the tribe of Ephraim: 78:68 But chose the tribe of Judah, the mount Zion which he loved. 78:69 And he built his sanctuary like high [palaces], like the earth which he hath established for ever. 78:70 He chose David also his servant, and took him from the sheepfolds: 78:71 From following the ewes great with young he brought him to feed Jacob his people, and Israel his inheritance.

78:72 So he fed them according to the integrity of his heart; and guided them by the skilfulness of his hands. 119:61 The bands of the wicked have robbed me: [but] I have not forgotten thy law.

119:62 At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto thee because of thy righteous judgments. 119:63 I [am] a companion of all [them] that fear thee, and of them that keep thy precepts. 119:64 The earth, O LORD, is full of thy mercy: teach me thy statutes. 119:65 TETH. Thou hast dealt well with thy servant, O LORD, according unto thy word. 119:66 Teach me good judgment and knowledge: for I have believed thy commandments.

119:67 Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word. 119:68 Thou [art] good, and doest good; teach me thy statutes. 119:69 The proud have forged a lie against me: [but] I will keep thy precepts with [my] whole heart. 119:70 Their heart is as fat as grease; [but] I delight in thy law. 119:71 [It is] good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn thy statutes.

119:72 The law of thy mouth [is] better unto me than thousands of gold and silver. 119:73 JOD. Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding, that I may learn thy commandments. 119:74 They that fear thee will be glad when they see me; because I have hoped in thy word. 119:75 I know, O LORD, that thy judgments [are] right, and [that] thou in faithfulness hast afflicted me. 119:76 Let, I pray thee, thy merciful kindness be for my comfort, according to thy word unto thy servant.

119:77 Let thy tender mercies come unto me, that I may live: for thy law [is] my delight. 119:78 Let the proud be ashamed; for they dealt perversely with me without a cause: [but] I will meditate in thy precepts.
