My anger overwhelms me because my foes forget Your words.
Your word is completely pure, and Your servant loves it.
I am insignificant and despised, but I do not forget Your precepts.
Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and Your instruction is true.
Trouble and distress have overtaken me, but Your commands are my delight.
Your decrees are righteous forever. Give me understanding, and I will live.
I call with all my heart; answer me, Lord. I will obey Your statutes.
I call to You; save me, and I will keep Your decrees.
I rise before dawn and cry out for help; I put my hope in Your word.
I am awake through each watch of the night to meditate on Your promise.
In keeping with Your faithful love, hear my voice. Lord, give me life, in keeping with Your justice.
