Psalm 119:17-24


17 Be good to your servant so I can go on living and keeping your word.
18 Open my eyes so I can examine the wonders of your Instruction!
19 I'm an immigrant in the land. Don't hide your commandments from me!
20 I'm worn out by longing every minute for your rules!
21 You rebuke the arrogant, accursed people who stray from your commandments.
22 Take all their insults and contempt away from me because I've kept your laws!
23 Even if rulers gather and scheme against me, your servant will contemplate your statutes!
24 Yes, your laws are my joy— they are my most trusted advisors!
