My eyes stay open through the watches of the night,1 that I may meditate on your promises.
Hear my voice2 in accordance with your love;3 preserve my life,4 O LORD, according to your laws.
Those who devise wicked schemes5 are near, but they are far from your law.
Yet you are near,6 O LORD, and all your commands are true.7152
Long ago I learned from your statutes8 that you established them to last forever.9
Look upon my suffering10 and deliver me,11 for I have not forgotten12 your law.
Defend my cause13 and redeem me;14 preserve my life15 according to your promise.16155
Salvation is far from the wicked, for they do not seek out17 your decrees.
Your compassion is great,18 O LORD; preserve my life19 according to your laws.20157
Many are the foes who persecute me,21 but I have not turned22 from your statutes.
I look on the faithless with loathing,23 for they do not obey your word.24
