Psalm 119:141-151 GNT

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.
151 But you are near to me, Lord, and all your commands are permanent.
