Psalm 119:89-176 (New International Version)

View In My Bible


89 Your word, O LORD, is eternal;1 it stands firm in the heavens. 90 Your faithfulness2 continues through all generations;3 you established the earth, and it endures.4 91 Your laws endure5 to this day, for all things serve you.6 92 If your law had not been my delight,7 I would have perished in my affliction.8 93 I will never forget9 your precepts, for by them you have preserved my life.10 94 Save me,11 for I am yours; I have sought out your precepts.12 95 The wicked are waiting to destroy me,13 but I will ponder your statutes.14 96 To all perfection I see a limit; but your commands are boundless.15


97 Oh, how I love your law!16 I meditate17 on it all day long. 98 Your commands make me wiser18 than my enemies, for they are ever with me. 99 I have more insight than all my teachers, for I meditate on your statutes.19 100 I have more understanding than the elders, for I obey your precepts.20 101 I have kept my feet21 from every evil path so that I might obey your word.22 102 I have not departed from your laws,23 for you yourself have taught24 me. 103 How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey25 to my mouth!26 104 I gain understanding27 from your precepts; therefore I hate every wrong path.28


105 Your word is a lamp29 to my feet and a light30 for my path. 106 I have taken an oath31 and confirmed it, that I will follow your righteous laws.32 107 I have suffered much; preserve my life,33 O LORD, according to your word. 108 Accept, O LORD, the willing praise of my mouth,34 and teach me your laws.35 109 Though I constantly take my life in my hands,36 I will not forget37 your law. 110 The wicked have set a snare38 for me, but I have not strayed39 from your precepts. 111 Your statutes are my heritage forever; they are the joy of my heart.40 112 My heart is set41 on keeping your decrees to the very end.42


113 I hate double-minded men,43 but I love your law.44 114 You are my refuge and my shield;45 I have put my hope46 in your word. 115 Away from me,47 you evildoers, that I may keep the commands of my God! 116 Sustain me48 according to your promise,49 and I will live; do not let my hopes be dashed.50 117 Uphold me,51 and I will be delivered;52 I will always have regard for your decrees.53 118 You reject all who stray54 from your decrees, for their deceitfulness is in vain. 119 All the wicked of the earth you discard like dross;55 therefore I love your statutes.56 120 My flesh trembles57 in fear of you;58 I stand in awe59 of your laws.


121 I have done what is righteous and just;60 do not leave me to my oppressors. 122 Ensure your servant's well-being;61 let not the arrogant oppress me.62 123 My eyes fail,63 looking for your salvation,64 looking for your righteous promise.65 124 Deal with your servant according to your love66 and teach me your decrees.67 125 I am your servant;68 give me discernment that I may understand your statutes.69 126 It is time for you to act, O LORD; your law is being broken.70 127 Because I love your commands71 more than gold,72 more than pure gold,73 128 and because I consider all your precepts right,74 I hate every wrong path.75


129 Your statutes are wonderful;76 therefore I obey them.77 130 The unfolding of your words gives light;78 it gives understanding to the simple.79 131 I open my mouth and pant,80 longing for your commands.81 132 Turn to me82 and have mercy83 on me, as you always do to those who love your name.84 133 Direct my footsteps according to your word;85 let no sin rule86 over me. 134 Redeem me from the oppression of men,87 that I may obey your precepts.88 135 Make your face shine89 upon your servant and teach me your decrees.90 136 Streams of tears91 flow from my eyes, for your law is not obeyed.92


137 Righteous are you,93 O LORD, and your laws are right.94 138 The statutes you have laid down are righteous;95 they are fully trustworthy.96 139 My zeal wears me out,97 for my enemies ignore your words. 140 Your promises98 have been thoroughly tested,99 and your servant loves them.100 141 Though I am lowly and despised,101 I do not forget your precepts.102 142 Your righteousness is everlasting and your law is true.103 143 Trouble and distress have come upon me, but your commands are my delight.104 144 Your statutes are forever right; give me understanding105 that I may live.


145 I call with all my heart;106 answer me, O LORD, and I will obey your decrees.107 146 I call out to you; save me108 and I will keep your statutes. 147 I rise before dawn109 and cry for help; I have put my hope in your word. 148 My eyes stay open through the watches of the night,110 that I may meditate on your promises. 149 Hear my voice111 in accordance with your love;112 preserve my life,113 O LORD, according to your laws. 150 Those who devise wicked schemes114 are near, but they are far from your law. 151 Yet you are near,115 O LORD, and all your commands are true.116 152 Long ago I learned from your statutes117 that you established them to last forever.118


153 Look upon my suffering119 and deliver me,120 for I have not forgotten121 your law. 154 Defend my cause122 and redeem me;123 preserve my life124 according to your promise.125 155 Salvation is far from the wicked, for they do not seek out126 your decrees. 156 Your compassion is great,127 O LORD; preserve my life128 according to your laws.129 157 Many are the foes who persecute me,130 but I have not turned131 from your statutes. 158 I look on the faithless with loathing,132 for they do not obey your word.133 159 See how I love your precepts; preserve my life,134 O LORD, according to your love. 160 All your words are true; all your righteous laws are eternal.135

Sin and Shin

161 Rulers persecute me136 without cause, but my heart trembles137 at your word. 162 I rejoice138 in your promise like one who finds great spoil.139 163 I hate and abhor140 falsehood but I love your law.141 164 Seven times a day I praise you for your righteous laws.142 165 Great peace143 have they who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble.144 166 I wait for your salvation,145 O LORD, and I follow your commands. 167 I obey your statutes, for I love them146 greatly. 168 I obey your precepts147 and your statutes,148 for all my ways are known149 to you.


169 May my cry come150 before you, O LORD; give me understanding151 according to your word.152 170 May my supplication come153 before you; deliver me154 according to your promise.155 171 May my lips overflow with praise,156 for you teach me157 your decrees. 172 May my tongue sing158 of your word, for all your commands are righteous.159 173 May your hand be ready to help160 me, for I have chosen161 your precepts. 174 I long for your salvation,162 O LORD, and your law is my delight.163 175 Let me live164 that I may praise you, and may your laws sustain me. 176 I have strayed like a lost sheep.165 Seek your servant, for I have not forgotten166 your commands.
