Righteous are you,1 O LORD, and your laws are right.2138
The statutes you have laid down are righteous;3 they are fully trustworthy.4139
My zeal wears me out,5 for my enemies ignore your words.
Your promises6 have been thoroughly tested,7 and your servant loves them.8141
Though I am lowly and despised,9 I do not forget your precepts.10142
Your righteousness is everlasting and your law is true.11143
Trouble and distress have come upon me, but your commands are my delight.12144
Your statutes are forever right; give me understanding13 that I may live.
