Psalm 119:148-158 MSG

148 I stayed awake all night, prayerfully pondering your promise.
149 In your love, listen to me; in your justice, God, keep me alive.
150 As those out to get me come closer and closer, they go farther and farther from the truth you reveal;
151 But you're the closest of all to me, God, and all your judgments true.
152 I've known all along from the evidence of your words that you meant them to last forever.
153 Take a good look at my trouble, and help me - I haven't forgotten your revelation.
154 Take my side and get me out of this; give me back my life, just as you promised.
155 "Salvation" is only gibberish to the wicked because they've never looked it up in your dictionary.
156 Your mercies, God, run into the billions; following your guidelines, revive me.
157 My antagonists are too many to count, but I don't swerve from the directions you gave.
158 I took one look at the quitters and was filled with loathing; they walked away from your promises so casually!
