Psalm 119:1-12

1 Blessed are those whose lives have integrity, those who follow the teachings of the LORD.
2 Blessed are those who obey his written instructions. They wholeheartedly search for him.
3 They do nothing wrong. They follow his directions.
4 You have commanded that your guiding principles be carefully followed.
5 I pray that my ways may become firmly established so that I can obey your laws.
6 Then I will never feel ashamed when I study all your commandments.
7 I will give thanks to you as I learn your regulations, which are based on your righteousness.
8 I will obey your laws. Never abandon me.
9 How can a young person keep his life pure? [He can do it] by holding on to your word.
10 I wholeheartedly searched for you. Do not let me wander away from your commandments.
11 I have treasured your promise in my heart so that I may not sin against you.
12 Thanks be to you, O LORD. Teach me your laws.
