121 I have done what is just and right;
   do not leave me to my oppressors.
122 Guarantee your servant’s well-being;
   do not let the godless oppress me.
123 My eyes fail from watching for your salvation,
   and for the fulfilment of your righteous promise.
124 Deal with your servant according to your steadfast love,
   and teach me your statutes.
125 I am your servant; give me understanding,
   so that I may know your decrees.
126 It is time for the Lord to act,
   for your law has been broken.
127 Truly I love your commandments
   more than gold, more than fine gold.
128 Truly I direct my steps by all your precepts;*
   I hate every false way.


129 Your decrees are wonderful;
   therefore my soul keeps them.
130 The unfolding of your words gives light;
   it imparts understanding to the simple.
131 With open mouth I pant,
   because I long for your commandments.
132 Turn to me and be gracious to me,
   as is your custom towards those who love your name.
133 Keep my steps steady according to your promise,
   and never let iniquity have dominion over me.
134 Redeem me from human oppression,
   that I may keep your precepts.
135 Make your face shine upon your servant,
   and teach me your statutes.
136 My eyes shed streams of tears
   because your law is not kept.


137 You are righteous, O Lord,
   and your judgements are right.
138 You have appointed your decrees in righteousness
   and in all faithfulness.
139 My zeal consumes me
   because my foes forget your words.
140 Your promise is well tried,
   and your servant loves it.
141 I am small and despised,
   yet I do not forget your precepts.
142 Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness,
   and your law is the truth.
143 Trouble and anguish have come upon me,
   but your commandments are my delight.
144 Your decrees are righteous for ever;
   give me understanding that I may live.
