Uphold me,1 and I will be delivered;2 I will always have regard for your decrees.3118
You reject all who stray4 from your decrees, for their deceitfulness is in vain.
All the wicked of the earth you discard like dross;5 therefore I love your statutes.6120
My flesh trembles7 in fear of you;8 I stand in awe9 of your laws.
I have done what is righteous and just;10 do not leave me to my oppressors.
Ensure your servant's well-being;11 let not the arrogant oppress me.12123
My eyes fail,13 looking for your salvation,14 looking for your righteous promise.15124
Deal with your servant according to your love16 and teach me your decrees.17125
I am your servant;18 give me discernment that I may understand your statutes.19126
It is time for you to act, O LORD; your law is being broken.20127
Because I love your commands21 more than gold,22 more than pure gold,23
