Psalm 119:148-158 RSV

148 My eyes are awake before the watches of the night, that I may meditate upon thy promise.
149 Hear my voice in thy steadfast love; O LORD, in thy justice preserve my life.
150 They draw near who persecute me with evil purpose; they are far from thy law.
151 But thou art near, O LORD, and all thy commandments are true.
152 Long have I known from thy testimonies that thou hast founded them for ever.
153 Look on my affliction and deliver me, for I do not forget thy law.
154 Plead my cause and redeem me; give me life according to thy promise!
155 Salvation is far from the wicked, for they do not seek thy statutes.
156 Great is thy mercy, O LORD; give me life according to thy justice.
157 Many are my persecutors and my adversaries, but I do not swerve from thy testimonies.
158 I look at the faithless with disgust, because they do not keep thy commands.
