Psalm 119:1-24 (New Living Translation)

View In My Bible
1 Happy are people of integritya, who follow the law of the LORD. 2 Happy are those who obey his decrees and search for him with all their hearts. 3 They do not compromise with evil, and they walk only in his paths. 4 You have charged us to keep your commandments carefully. 5 Oh, that my actions would consistently reflect your principles! 6 Then I will not be disgraced when I compare my life with your commands. 7 When I learn your righteous laws, I will thank you by living as I should! 8 I will obey your principles. Please don't give up on me! 9 How can a young person stay pure? By obeying your word and following its rules. 10 I have tried my best to find you -- don't let me wander from your commands. 11 I have hidden your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you. 12 Blessed are you, O LORD; teach me your principles. 13 I have recited aloud all the laws you have given us. 14 I have rejoiced in your decrees as much as in riches. 15 I will study your commandments and reflect on your ways. 16 I will delight in your principles and not forget your word. 17 Be good to your servant, that I may live and obey your word. 18 Open my eyes to see the wonderful truths in your law. 19 I am but a foreigner here on earth; I need the guidance of your commands. Don't hide them from me! 20 I am overwhelmed continually with a desire for your laws. 21 You rebuke those cursed proud ones who wander from your commands. 22 Don't let them scorn and insult me, for I have obeyed your decrees. 23 Even princes sit and speak against me, but I will meditate on your principles. 24 Your decrees please me; they give me wise advice.
