May your unfailing love1 come to me, O LORD, your salvation according to your promise;242
then I will answer3 the one who taunts me,4 for I trust in your word.
Do not snatch the word of truth from my mouth,5 for I have put my hope6 in your laws.
I will always obey your law,7 for ever and ever.
I will walk about in freedom, for I have sought out your precepts.846
I will speak of your statutes before kings9 and will not be put to shame,1047
for I delight11 in your commands because I love them.1248
I lift up my hands toa your commands, which I love, and I meditate13 on your decrees.
Remember your word14 to your servant, for you have given me hope.1550
My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise preserves my life.1651
The arrogant mock me17 without restraint, but I do not turn18 from your law.
