Psalm 119:148-158 GNT

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.
152 Long ago I learned about your instructions; you made them to last forever.
153 Look at my suffering, and save me, because I have not neglected your law.
154 Defend my cause, and set me free; save me, as you have promised.
155 The wicked will not be saved, for they do not obey your laws.
156 But your compassion, Lord, is great; show your mercy and save me!
157 I have many enemies and oppressors, but I do not fail to obey your laws.
158 When I look at those traitors, I am filled with disgust, because they do not keep your commands.
