course.

6 It goeth forth from the uttermost part of the heaven, and runneth about unto the end of it | a--gain : and there is nothing hid from the --heat there-:-of.

7 The law of the Lord is an undefiled law, converting the --- soul : the testimony of the Lord is sure, and giveth wisdom un{to --- the sim---ple.

8 The statutes of the Lord are right, and rejoice | the heart : the commandment of the Lord is pure, and giveth light { un---to the -- eyes.

9 The fear of the Lord is clean, and endureth for e--ver : the judgements of the Lord are true, and righteous al--to ge---ther.

10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much | fine gold : sweeter also than honey, and the honey---comb.
