Psalm 119:97-120

Oh, how I love thy law! It is my meditation all the day. Thy commandment makes me wiser than my enemies, for it is ever with me. I have more understanding than all my teachers, for thy testimonies are my meditation. I understand more than the aged, for I keep thy precepts. I hold back my feet from every evil way, in order to keep thy word. I do not turn aside from thy ordinances, for thou hast taught me. How sweet are thy words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! Through thy precepts I get understanding; therefore I hate every false way. Thy word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. I have sworn an oath and confirmed it, to observe thy righteous ordinances. I am sorely afflicted; give me life, O LORD, according to thy word! Accept my offerings of praise, O LORD, and teach me thy ordinances. I hold my life in my hand continually, but I do not forget thy law. The wicked have laid a snare for me, but I do not stray from thy precepts. Thy testimonies are my heritage for ever; yea, they are the joy of my heart. I incline my heart to perform thy statutes for ever, to the end. I hate double-minded men, but I love thy law. Thou art my hiding place and my shield; I hope in thy word. Depart from me, you evildoers, that I may keep the commandments of my God. Uphold me according to thy promise, that I may live, and let me not be put to shame in my hope! Hold me up, that I may be safe and have regard for thy statutes continually! Thou dost spurn all who go astray from thy statutes; yea, their cunning is in vain. All the wicked of the earth thou dost count as dross; therefore I love thy testimonies. My flesh trembles for fear of thee, and I am afraid of thy judgments.
