119:5 O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!
119:6 Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy

learned thy righteous judgments.

119:11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against
119:12 Blessed art thou, O LORD: teach me thy statutes.
119:13 With my lips have I declared all the judgments of thy mouth.

of thy wondrous works.
119:28 My soul melteth for heaviness: strengthen thou me according
unto thy word.
119:29 Remove from me the way of lying: and grant me thy law
119:30 I have chosen the way of truth: thy judgments have I laid
119:31 I have stuck unto thy testimonies: O LORD, put me not to shame.
119:32 I will run the way of thy commandments, when thou shalt enlarge
119:33 Teach me, O LORD, the way of thy statutes; and I shall keep it
unto the end.
119:34 Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law; yea, I shall
observe it with my whole heart.

119:36 Incline my heart unto thy testimonies, and not to covetousness.
119:37 Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity; and quicken thou me
in thy way.
119:38 Stablish thy word unto thy servant, who is devoted to thy fear.

119:42 So shall I have wherewith to answer him that reproacheth me:
for I trust in thy word.
119:43 And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth; for I
have hoped in thy judgments.
119:44 So shall I keep thy law continually for ever and ever.
119:45 And I will walk at liberty: for I seek thy precepts.
119:46 I will speak of thy testimonies also before kings, and will not
119:47 And I will delight myself in thy commandments, which I have
119:48 My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments, which I
have loved; and I will meditate in thy statutes.
119:49 Remember the word unto thy servant, upon which thou hast caused
me to hope.
119:50 This is my comfort in my affliction: for thy word hath
119:51 The proud have had me greatly in derision: yet have I not
declined from thy law.
119:52 I remembered thy judgments of old, O LORD; and have comforted
119:53 Horror hath taken hold upon me because of the wicked that
forsake thy law.
119:54 Thy statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimage.
119:55 I have remembered thy name, O LORD, in the night, and have kept
119:56 This I had, because I kept thy precepts.
119:57 Thou art my portion, O LORD: I have said that I would keep thy
119:58 I intreated thy favour with my whole heart: be merciful unto me
according to thy word.
119:59 I thought on my ways, and turned my feet unto thy testimonies.
119:60 I made haste, and delayed not to keep thy commandments.
119:61 The bands of the wicked have robbed me: but I have not
forgotten thy law.
119:62 At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto thee because of thy
119:63 I am a companion of all them that fear thee, and of them that
keep thy precepts.
119:64 The earth, O LORD, is full of thy mercy: teach me thy statutes.
119:65 Thou hast dealt well with thy servant, O LORD, according unto
119:66 Teach me good judgment and knowledge: for I have believed thy
119:67 Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy
119:68 Thou art good, and doest good; teach me thy statutes.
119:69 The proud have forged a lie against me: but I will keep thy
precepts with my whole heart.
119:70 Their heart is as fat as grease; but I delight in thy law.
119:71 It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might
learn thy statutes.
119:72 The law of thy mouth is better unto me than thousands of gold
119:73 Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding,
that I may learn thy commandments.
119:74 They that fear thee will be glad when they see me; because I
have hoped in thy word.
119:75 I know, O LORD, that thy judgments are right, and that thou in
faithfulness hast afflicted me.
119:76 Let, I pray thee, thy merciful kindness be for my comfort,
according to thy word unto thy servant.
119:77 Let thy tender mercies come unto me, that I may live: for thy
law is my delight.
119:78 Let the proud be ashamed; for they dealt perversely with me
without a cause: but I will meditate in thy precepts.
119:79 Let those that fear thee turn unto me, and those that have
known thy testimonies.
119:80 Let my heart be sound in thy statutes; that I be not ashamed.
119:81 My soul fainteth for thy salvation: but I hope in thy word.
119:82 Mine eyes fail for thy word, saying, When wilt thou comfort me?
119:83 For I am become like a bottle in the smoke; yet do I not forget
119:84 How many are the days of thy servant? when wilt thou execute
judgment on them that persecute me?
119:85 The proud have digged pits for me, which are not after thy law.
119:86 All thy commandments are faithful: they persecute me
wrongfully; help thou me.
119:87 They had almost consumed me upon earth; but I forsook not thy
119:88 Quicken me after thy lovingkindness; so shall I keep the
testimony of thy mouth.
119:89 For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.
119:90 Thy faithfulness is unto all generations: thou hast established
the earth, and it abideth.
119:91 They continue this day according to thine ordinances: for all
are thy servants.
119:92 Unless thy law had been my delights, I should then have
perished in mine affliction.
119:93 I will never forget thy precepts: for with them thou hast
119:94 I am thine, save me: for I have sought thy precepts.
119:95 The wicked have waited for me to destroy me: but I will
consider thy testimonies.
119:96 I have seen an end of all perfection: but thy commandment is
119:97 O how I love thy law! it is my meditation all the day.
119:98 Thou through thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine
enemies: for they are ever with me.
119:99 I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy
testimonies are my meditation.
119:100 I understand more than the ancients, because I keep thy

keep thy word.
119:102 I have not departed from thy judgments: for thou hast taught
119:103 How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey
to my mouth!
119:104 Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate
every false way.
119:105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
119:106 I have sworn, and I will perform it, that I will keep thy
119:107 I am afflicted very much: quicken me, O LORD, according unto
119:108 Accept, I beseech thee, the freewill offerings of my mouth, O
LORD, and teach me thy judgments.
119:109 My soul is continually in my hand: yet do I not forget thy
119:110 The wicked have laid a snare for me: yet I erred not from thy
119:111 Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage for ever: for they
are the rejoicing of my heart.
119:112 I have inclined mine heart to perform thy statutes alway, even
unto the end.
119:113 I hate vain thoughts: but thy law do I love.
119:114 Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word.
119:115 Depart from me, ye evildoers: for I will keep the commandments
of my God.
119:116 Uphold me according unto thy word, that I may live: and let me
not be ashamed of my hope.
119:117 Hold thou me up, and I shall be safe: and I will have respect
unto thy statutes continually.
119:118 Thou hast trodden down all them that err from thy statutes:
for their deceit is falsehood.
119:119 Thou puttest away all the wicked of the earth like dross:
therefore I love thy testimonies.
119:120 My flesh trembleth for fear of thee; and I am afraid of thy
119:121 I have done judgment and justice: leave me not to mine
119:122 Be surety for thy servant for good: let not the proud oppress
119:123 Mine eyes fail for thy salvation, and for the word of thy
119:124 Deal with thy servant according unto thy mercy, and teach me
119:125 I am thy servant; give me understanding, that I may know thy
119:126 It is time for thee, LORD, to work: for they have made void
119:127 Therefore I love thy commandments above gold; yea, above fine
119:128 Therefore I esteem all thy precepts concerning all things to
be right; and I hate every false way.
119:129 Thy testimonies are wonderful: therefore doth my soul keep
119:130 The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth
understanding unto the simple.
119:131 I opened my mouth, and panted: for I longed for thy
119:132 Look thou upon me, and be merciful unto me, as thou usest to
do unto those that love thy name.
119:133 Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have
dominion over me.
119:134 Deliver me from the oppression of man: so will I keep thy
119:135 Make thy face to shine upon thy servant; and teach me thy
119:136 Rivers of waters run down mine eyes, because they keep not thy
119:137 Righteous art thou, O LORD, and upright are thy judgments.
119:138 Thy testimonies that thou hast commanded are righteous and
119:139 My zeal hath consumed me, because mine enemies have forgotten
119:140 Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it.
119:141 I am small and despised: yet do not I forget thy precepts.
119:142 Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law
is the truth.
119:143 Trouble and anguish have taken hold on me: yet thy
commandments are my delights.
119:144 The righteousness of thy testimonies is everlasting: give me
understanding, and I shall live.
119:145 I cried with my whole heart; hear me, O LORD: I will keep thy
119:146 I cried unto thee; save me, and I shall keep thy testimonies.
119:147 I prevented the dawning of the morning, and cried: I hoped in
119:148 Mine eyes prevent the night watches, that I might meditate in
119:149 Hear my voice according unto thy lovingkindness: O LORD,
quicken me according to thy judgment.
119:150 They draw nigh that follow after mischief: they are far from
119:151 Thou art near, O LORD; and all thy commandments are truth.
119:152 Concerning thy testimonies, I have known of old that thou hast
founded them for ever.

119:155 Salvation is far from the wicked: for they seek not thy
119:156 Great are thy tender mercies, O LORD: quicken me according to
119:157 Many are my persecutors and mine enemies; yet do I not decline
from thy testimonies.
119:158 I beheld the transgressors, and was grieved; because they kept
not thy word.
119:159 Consider how I love thy precepts: quicken me, O LORD,
according to thy lovingkindness.
119:160 Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy
righteous judgments endureth for ever.
119:161 Princes have persecuted me without a cause: but my heart
standeth in awe of thy word.
119:162 I rejoice at thy word, as one that findeth great spoil.
119:163 I hate and abhor lying: but thy law do I love.
119:164 Seven times a day do I praise thee because of thy righteous

judgments help me.
