Psalm 119:140-150 GNT

140 How certain your promise is! How I love it!
141 I am unimportant and despised, but I do not neglect your teachings.
142 Your righteousness will last forever, and your law is always true.
143 I am filled with trouble and anxiety, but your commandments bring me joy.
144 Your instructions are always just; give me understanding, and I shall live.
145 With all my heart I call to you; answer me, Lord, and I will obey your commands!
146 I call to you; save me, and I will keep your laws.
147 Before sunrise I call to you for help; I place my hope in your promise.
148 All night long I lie awake, to meditate on your instructions.
149 Because your love is constant, hear me, O Lord; show your mercy, and preserve my life!
150 My cruel persecutors are coming closer, people who never keep your law.
