Salvation is far from the wicked, for they do not seek out1 your decrees.
Your compassion is great,2 O LORD; preserve my life3 according to your laws.4157
Many are the foes who persecute me,5 but I have not turned6 from your statutes.
I look on the faithless with loathing,7 for they do not obey your word.8159
See how I love your precepts; preserve my life,9 O LORD, according to your love.
All your words are true; all your righteous laws are eternal.10
Rulers persecute me11 without cause, but my heart trembles12 at your word.
I rejoice13 in your promise like one who finds great spoil.14163
I hate and abhor15 falsehood but I love your law.16164
Seven times a day I praise you for your righteous laws.17165
Great peace18 have they who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble.19
