Remember your word1 to your servant, for you have given me hope.250
My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise preserves my life.351
The arrogant mock me4 without restraint, but I do not turn5 from your law.
I remember6 your ancient laws, O LORD, and I find comfort in them.
Indignation grips me7 because of the wicked, who have forsaken your law.854
Your decrees are the theme of my song9 wherever I lodge.
In the night I remember10 your name, O LORD, and I will keep your law.1156
This has been my practice: I obey your precepts.12
You are my portion,13 O LORD; I have promised to obey your words.1458
I have sought15 your face with all my heart; be gracious to me16 according to your promise.1759
I have considered my ways18 and have turned my steps to your statutes.
I will hasten and not delay to obey your commands.1961
Though the wicked bind me with ropes, I will not forget20 your law.
At midnight21 I rise to give you thanks for your righteous laws.2263
I am a friend to all who fear you,23 to all who follow your precepts.2464
The earth is filled with your love,25 O LORD; teach me your decrees.26
Do good27 to your servant according to your word,28 O LORD.
Teach me knowledge29 and good judgment, for I believe in your commands.
Before I was afflicted30 I went astray,31 but now I obey your word.3268
You are good,33 and what you do is good; teach me your decrees.3469
Though the arrogant have smeared me with lies,35 I keep your precepts with all my heart.
Their hearts are callous36 and unfeeling, but I delight in your law.
It was good for me to be afflicted37 so that I might learn your decrees.
The law from your mouth is more precious to me than thousands of pieces of silver and gold.38
