Psalm 119:113-176 (New International Version)

View In My Bible


113 I hate double-minded men,1 but I love your law.2 114 You are my refuge and my shield;3 I have put my hope4 in your word. 115 Away from me,5 you evildoers, that I may keep the commands of my God! 116 Sustain me6 according to your promise,7 and I will live; do not let my hopes be dashed.8 117 Uphold me,9 and I will be delivered;10 I will always have regard for your decrees.11 118 You reject all who stray12 from your decrees, for their deceitfulness is in vain. 119 All the wicked of the earth you discard like dross;13 therefore I love your statutes.14 120 My flesh trembles15 in fear of you;16 I stand in awe17 of your laws.


121 I have done what is righteous and just;18 do not leave me to my oppressors. 122 Ensure your servant's well-being;19 let not the arrogant oppress me.20 123 My eyes fail,21 looking for your salvation,22 looking for your righteous promise.23 124 Deal with your servant according to your love24 and teach me your decrees.25 125 I am your servant;26 give me discernment that I may understand your statutes.27 126 It is time for you to act, O LORD; your law is being broken.28 127 Because I love your commands29 more than gold,30 more than pure gold,31 128 and because I consider all your precepts right,32 I hate every wrong path.33


129 Your statutes are wonderful;34 therefore I obey them.35 130 The unfolding of your words gives light;36 it gives understanding to the simple.37 131 I open my mouth and pant,38 longing for your commands.39 132 Turn to me40 and have mercy41 on me, as you always do to those who love your name.42 133 Direct my footsteps according to your word;43 let no sin rule44 over me. 134 Redeem me from the oppression of men,45 that I may obey your precepts.46 135 Make your face shine47 upon your servant and teach me your decrees.48 136 Streams of tears49 flow from my eyes, for your law is not obeyed.50


137 Righteous are you,51 O LORD, and your laws are right.52 138 The statutes you have laid down are righteous;53 they are fully trustworthy.54 139 My zeal wears me out,55 for my enemies ignore your words. 140 Your promises56 have been thoroughly tested,57 and your servant loves them.58 141 Though I am lowly and despised,59 I do not forget your precepts.60 142 Your righteousness is everlasting and your law is true.61 143 Trouble and distress have come upon me, but your commands are my delight.62 144 Your statutes are forever right; give me understanding63 that I may live.


145 I call with all my heart;64 answer me, O LORD, and I will obey your decrees.65 146 I call out to you; save me66 and I will keep your statutes. 147 I rise before dawn67 and cry for help; I have put my hope in your word. 148 My eyes stay open through the watches of the night,68 that I may meditate on your promises. 149 Hear my voice69 in accordance with your love;70 preserve my life,71 O LORD, according to your laws. 150 Those who devise wicked schemes72 are near, but they are far from your law. 151 Yet you are near,73 O LORD, and all your commands are true.74 152 Long ago I learned from your statutes75 that you established them to last forever.76


153 Look upon my suffering77 and deliver me,78 for I have not forgotten79 your law. 154 Defend my cause80 and redeem me;81 preserve my life82 according to your promise.83 155 Salvation is far from the wicked, for they do not seek out84 your decrees. 156 Your compassion is great,85 O LORD; preserve my life86 according to your laws.87 157 Many are the foes who persecute me,88 but I have not turned89 from your statutes. 158 I look on the faithless with loathing,90 for they do not obey your word.91 159 See how I love your precepts; preserve my life,92 O LORD, according to your love. 160 All your words are true; all your righteous laws are eternal.93

Sin and Shin

161 Rulers persecute me94 without cause, but my heart trembles95 at your word. 162 I rejoice96 in your promise like one who finds great spoil.97 163 I hate and abhor98 falsehood but I love your law.99 164 Seven times a day I praise you for your righteous laws.100 165 Great peace101 have they who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble.102 166 I wait for your salvation,103 O LORD, and I follow your commands. 167 I obey your statutes, for I love them104 greatly. 168 I obey your precepts105 and your statutes,106 for all my ways are known107 to you.


169 May my cry come108 before you, O LORD; give me understanding109 according to your word.110 170 May my supplication come111 before you; deliver me112 according to your promise.113 171 May my lips overflow with praise,114 for you teach me115 your decrees. 172 May my tongue sing116 of your word, for all your commands are righteous.117 173 May your hand be ready to help118 me, for I have chosen119 your precepts. 174 I long for your salvation,120 O LORD, and your law is my delight.121 175 Let me live122 that I may praise you, and may your laws sustain me. 176 I have strayed like a lost sheep.123 Seek your servant, for I have not forgotten124 your commands.
