119:10 With my whole heart have I sought you: O let me not wander from your commandments.
119:11 Your word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against you.
119:12 Blessed are you, O LORD: teach me your statutes.
119:13 With my lips have I declared all the judgments of your mouth.

119:29 Remove from me the way of lying: and grant me your law graciously.
119:30 I have chosen the way of truth: your judgments have I laid before me.
119:31 I have stuck unto your testimonies: O LORD, put me not to shame.
119:32 I will run the way of your commandments, when you shall enlarge my heart.
119:33 Teach me, O LORD, the way of your statutes; and I shall keep it unto the end.

119:44 So shall I keep your law continually for ever and ever.
119:45 And I will walk at liberty: for I seek your precepts.
119:46 I will speak of your testimonies also before kings, and will not be ashamed.

119:49 Remember the word unto your servant, upon which you have caused me to hope.
119:50 This is my comfort in my affliction: for your word has quickened me.
119:51 The proud have had me greatly in derision: yet have I not declined from your law.
119:52 I remembered your judgments of old, O LORD; and have comforted myself.
119:53 Horror has taken hold upon me because of the wicked that forsake your law.
119:54 Your statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimage.
119:55 I have remembered your name, O LORD, in the night, and have kept your law.
119:56 This I had, because I kept your precepts.
119:57 You are my portion, O LORD: I have said that I would keep your words.
119:58 I implored your favour with my whole heart: be merciful unto me according to your word.
119:59 I thought on my ways, and turned my feet unto your testimonies.
119:60 I made haste, and delayed not to keep your commandments.
119:61 The bands of the wicked have robbed me: but I have not forgotten your law.
119:62 At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto you because of your righteous judgments.
119:63 I am a companion of all them that fear you, and of them that keep your precepts.
119:64 The earth, O LORD, is full of your mercy: teach me your statutes.
119:65 You have dealt well with your servant, O LORD, according unto your word.
119:66 Teach me good judgment and knowledge: for I have believed your commandments.
119:67 Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept your word.
119:68 You are good, and do good; teach me your statutes.
119:69 The proud have forged a lie against me: but I will keep your precepts with my whole heart.
119:70 Their heart is as fat as grease; but I delight in your law.
119:71 It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn your statutes.
119:72 The law of your mouth is better unto me than thousands of gold and silver.
119:73 Your hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding, that I may learn your commandments.
119:74 They that fear you will be glad when they see me; because I have hoped in your word.
119:75 I know, O LORD, that your judgments are right, and that you in faithfulness have afflicted me.
119:76 Let, I pray you, your merciful kindness be for my comfort, according to your word unto your servant.
119:77 Let your tender mercies come unto me, that I may live: for your 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 your precepts.
119:79 Let those that fear you turn unto me, and those that have known your testimonies.
119:80 Let my heart be sound in your statutes; that I be not ashamed.
119:81 My soul faints for your salvation: but I hope in your word.
119:82 Mine eyes fail for your word, saying, When will you comfort me?
119:83 For I am become like a bottle in the smoke; yet do I not forget your statutes.
119:84 How many are the days of your servant? when will you execute judgment on them that persecute me?
119:85 The proud have dug pits for me, which are not after your law.
119:86 All your commandments are faithful: they persecute me wrongfully; help you me.
119:87 They had almost consumed me upon earth; but I forsook not your precepts.
119:88 Restore life in me after your loving kindness; so shall I keep the testimony of your mouth.
119:89 For ever, O LORD, your word is settled in heaven.
119:90 Your faithfulness is unto all generations: you have established the earth, and it abides.
119:91 They continue this day according to your ordinances: for all are your servants.
119:92 Unless your law had been my delights, I should then have perished in mine affliction.
119:93 I will never forget your precepts: for with them you have quickened me.
119:94 I am yours, save me: for I have sought your precepts.
119:95 The wicked have waited for me to destroy me: but I will consider your testimonies.
119:96 I have seen an end of all perfection: but your commandment is exceeding broad.
119:97 O how I love your law! it is my meditation all the day.
119:98 You through your commandments have made me wiser than mine enemies: for they are ever with me.
119:99 I have more understanding than all my teachers: for your testimonies are my meditation.
119:100 I understand more than the ancients, because I keep your precepts.
119:101 I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep your word.
119:102 I have not departed from your judgments: for you have taught me.
119:103 How sweet are your words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
119:104 Through your precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.
119:105 Your 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 your righteous judgments.
119:107 I am afflicted very much: restore life in me, O LORD, according unto your word.
119:108 Accept, I plead to you, the freewill offerings of my mouth, O LORD, and teach me your judgments.
119:109 My soul is continually in my hand: yet do I not forget your law.
119:110 The wicked have laid a snare for me: yet I erred not from your precepts.
119:111 Your 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 your statutes always, even unto the end.
119:113 I hate vain thoughts: but your law do I love.
119:114 You are my hiding place and my shield: I hope in your word.
119:115 Depart from me, all of you evildoers: for I will keep the commandments of my God.
119:116 Uphold me according unto your word, that I may live: and let me not be ashamed of my hope.
119:117 Hold you me up, and I shall be safe: and I will have respect unto your statutes continually.
119:118 You have trodden down all them that go astray from your statutes: for their deceit is falsehood.
119:119 You put away all the wicked of the earth like dross: therefore I love your testimonies.
119:120 My flesh trembles for fear of you; and I am afraid of your judgments.
119:121 I have done judgment and justice: leave me not to mine oppressors.
119:122 Be guarantor for your servant for good: let not the proud oppress me.
119:123 Mine eyes fail for your salvation, and for the word of your righteousness.
119:124 Deal with your servant according unto your mercy, and teach me your statutes.
119:125 I am your servant; give me understanding, that I may know your testimonies.
119:126 It is time for you, LORD, to work: for they have made void your law.
119:127 Therefore I love your commandments above gold; yea, above fine gold.
119:128 Therefore I esteem all your precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way.
119:129 Your testimonies are wonderful: therefore does my soul keep them.
119:130 The entrance of your words gives light; it gives understanding unto the simple.
119:131 I opened my mouth, and panted: for I longed for your commandments.
119:132 Look you upon me, and be merciful unto me, as you use to do unto those that love your name.
119:133 Order my steps in your word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.
119:134 Deliver me from the oppression of man: so will I keep your precepts.
119:135 Make your face to shine upon your servant; and teach me your statutes.
119:136 Rivers of waters run down mine eyes, because they keep not your law.
119:137 Righteous are you, O LORD, and upright are your judgments.
119:138 Your testimonies that you have commanded are righteous and very faithful.
119:139 My zeal has consumed me, because mine enemies have forgotten your words.

119:141 I am small and despised: yet do not I forget your precepts.
119:142 Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and your law is the truth.
119:143 Trouble and anguish have taken hold on me: yet your commandments are my delights.

119:147 I prevented the dawning of the morning, and cried: I hoped in your word.
119:148 Mine eyes prevent the night watches, that I might meditate in your word.
119:149 Hear my voice according unto your loving kindness: O LORD, restore life in me according to your judgment.
