Psalm 119 [I have collected and disposed the most useful] by Isaac Watts

I have collected and disposed the most useful
verses of this psalm under eighteen different heads, and
formed a divine song upon each of them. But the verses
are much transposed to attain some degree of connection.

In some places, among the words “law,” “commands,”
“judgments,” “testimonies,” I have used “gospel,” “word,”
“grace,” “truth,” “promises,” etc. as more agreeable to the
language of the New Testament, and the common language
of Christians, and it equally answers the design of the
Psalmist, which was to recommend the holy scripture.
