24O hear the prayer of thy servant, and give ear to the petition of thy creature. 25For while I live I will speak, and so long as I have understanding I will answer. 26O look not upon the sins of thy people; but on them which serve thee in truth. 27Regard not the wicked inventions of the heathen, but the desire of those that keep thy testimonies in afflictions.28Think not upon those that have walked feignedly before thee: but remember them, which according to thy will have known thy fear. 29Let it not be thy will to destroy them which have lived like beasts; but to look upon them that have clearly taught thy law. 30Take thou no indignation at them which are deemed worse than beasts; but love them that always put their trust in thy righteousness and glory.
