I call with all my heart;1 answer me, O LORD, and I will obey your decrees.2146
I call out to you; save me3 and I will keep your statutes.
I rise before dawn4 and cry for help; I have put my hope in your word.
My eyes stay open through the watches of the night,5 that I may meditate on your promises.
Hear my voice6 in accordance with your love;7 preserve my life,8 O LORD, according to your laws.
Those who devise wicked schemes9 are near, but they are far from your law.
Yet you are near,10 O LORD, and all your commands are true.11152
Long ago I learned from your statutes12 that you established them to last forever.13
Look upon my suffering14 and deliver me,15 for I have not forgotten16 your law.
Defend my cause17 and redeem me;18 preserve my life19 according to your promise.20155
Salvation is far from the wicked, for they do not seek out21 your decrees.
Your compassion is great,22 O LORD; preserve my life23 according to your laws.24157
Many are the foes who persecute me,25 but I have not turned26 from your statutes.
I look on the faithless with loathing,27 for they do not obey your word.28159
See how I love your precepts; preserve my life,29 O LORD, according to your love.
All your words are true; all your righteous laws are eternal.30
Rulers persecute me31 without cause, but my heart trembles32 at your word.
I rejoice33 in your promise like one who finds great spoil.34163
I hate and abhor35 falsehood but I love your law.36164
Seven times a day I praise you for your righteous laws.37165
Great peace38 have they who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble.39166
I wait for your salvation,40 O LORD, and I follow your commands.
I obey your statutes, for I love them41 greatly.
I obey your precepts42 and your statutes,43 for all my ways are known44 to you.
May my cry come45 before you, O LORD; give me understanding46 according to your word.47170
May my supplication come48 before you; deliver me49 according to your promise.50171
May my lips overflow with praise,51 for you teach me52 your decrees.
May my tongue sing53 of your word, for all your commands are righteous.54173
May your hand be ready to help55 me, for I have chosen56 your precepts.
I long for your salvation,57 O LORD, and your law is my delight.58175
Let me live59 that I may praise you, and may your laws sustain me.
I have strayed like a lost sheep.60 Seek your servant, for I have not forgotten61 your commands.
