Psalm 119

1Happy are those whose way is blameless, who walk in the law of the Lord.

2Happy are those who keep his decrees, who seek him with their whole heart,

3who also do no wrong, but walk in his ways.

4You have commanded your precepts to be kept diligently.

5O that my ways may be steadfast in keeping your statutes!

6Then I shall not be put to shame, having my eyes fixed on all your commandments.

7I will praise you with an upright heart, when I learn your righteous ordinances.

8I will observe your statutes; do not utterly forsake me.

9How can young people keep their way pure? By guarding it according to your word.

10With my whole heart I seek you; do not let me stray from your commandments.

11I treasure your word in my heart, so that I may not sin against you.

12Blessed are you, O Lord; teach me your statutes.

13With my lips I declare all the ordinances of your mouth.

14I delight in the way of your decrees as much as in all riches.

15I will meditate on your precepts, and fix my eyes on your ways.

16I will delight in your statutes; I will not forget your word.

17Deal bountifully with your servant, so that I may live and observe your word.

18Open my eyes, so that I may behold wondrous things out of your law.

19I live as an alien in the land; do not hide your commandments from me.

20My soul is consumed with longing for your ordinances at all times.

21You rebuke the insolent, accursed ones, who wander from your commandments;

22take away from me their scorn and contempt, for I have kept your decrees.

23Even though princes sit plotting against me, your servant will meditate on your statutes.

24Your decrees are my delight, they are my counselors.

25My soul clings to the dust; revive me according to your word.

26When I told of my ways, you answered me; teach me your statutes.

27Make me understand the way of your precepts, and I will meditate on your wondrous works.

28My soul melts away for sorrow; strengthen me according to your word.

29Put false ways far from me; and graciously teach me your law.

30I have chosen the way of faithfulness; I set your ordinances before me.

31I cling to your decrees, O Lord; let me not be put to shame.

32I run the way of your commandments, for you enlarge my understanding.

33Teach me, O Lord, the way of your statutes, and I will observe it to the end.

34Give me understanding, that I may keep your law and observe it with my whole heart.

35Lead me in the path of your commandments, for I delight in it.

36Turn my heart to your decrees, and not to selfish gain.

37Turn my eyes from looking at vanities; give me life in your ways.

38Confirm to your servant your promise, which is for those who fear you.

39Turn away the disgrace that I dread, for your ordinances are good.

40See, I have longed for your precepts; in your righteousness give me life.

41Let your steadfast love come to me, O Lord, your salvation according to your promise.

42Then I shall have an answer for those who taunt me, for I trust in your word.

43Do not take the word of truth utterly out of my mouth, for my hope is in your ordinances.

44I will keep your law continually, forever and ever.

45I shall walk at liberty, for I have sought your precepts.

46I will also speak of your decrees before kings, and shall not be put to shame;

47I find my delight in your commandments, because I love them.

48I revere your commandments, which I love, and I will meditate on your statutes.

49Remember your word to your servant, in which you have made me hope.

50This is my comfort in my distress, that your promise gives me life.

51The arrogant utterly deride me, but I do not turn away from your law.

52When I think of your ordinances from of old, I take comfort, O Lord.

53Hot indignation seizes me because of the wicked, those who forsake your law.

54Your statutes have been my songs wherever I make my home.

55I remember your name in the night, O Lord, and keep your law.

56This blessing has fallen to me, for I have kept your precepts.

57The Lord is my portion; I promise to keep your words.

58I implore your favor with all my heart; be gracious to me according to your promise.

59When I think of your ways, I turn my feet to your decrees;

60I hurry and do not delay to keep your commandments.

61Though the cords of the wicked ensnare me, I do not forget your law.

62At midnight I rise to praise you, because of your righteous ordinances.

63I am a companion of all who fear you, of those who keep your precepts.

64The earth, O Lord, is full of your steadfast love; teach me your statutes.

65You have dealt well with your servant, O Lord, according to your word.

66Teach me good judgment and knowledge, for I believe in your commandments.

67Before I was humbled I went astray, but now I keep your word.

68You are good and do good; teach me your statutes.

69The arrogant smear me with lies, but with my whole heart I keep your precepts.

70Their hearts are fat and gross, but I delight in your law.

71It is good for me that I was humbled, so that I might learn your statutes.

72The law of your mouth is better to me than thousands of gold and silver pieces.

73Your hands have made and fashioned me; give me understanding that I may learn your commandments.

74Those who fear you shall see me and rejoice, because I have hoped in your word.

75I know, O Lord, that your judgments are right, and that in faithfulness you have humbled me.

76Let your steadfast love become my comfort according to your promise to your servant.

77Let your mercy come to me, that I may live; for your law is my delight.

78Let the arrogant be put to shame, because they have subverted me with guile; as for me, I will meditate on your precepts.

79Let those who fear you turn to me, so that they may know your decrees.

80May my heart be blameless in your statutes, so that I may not be put to shame.

81My soul languishes for your salvation; I hope in your word.

82My eyes fail with watching for your promise; I ask, “When will you comfort me?”

83For I have become like a wineskin in the smoke, yet I have not forgotten your statutes.

84How long must your servant endure? When will you judge those who persecute me?

85The arrogant have dug pitfalls for me; they flout your law.

86All your commandments are enduring; I am persecuted without cause; help me!

87They have almost made an end of me on earth; but I have not forsaken your precepts.

88In your steadfast love spare my life, so that I may keep the decrees of your mouth.
