Psalms 119:49-72


Remember thy word to thy servant, in which thou hast made me hope. This is my comfort in my affliction that thy promise gives me life. Godless men utterly deride me, but I do not turn away from thy law. When I think of thy ordinances from of old, I take comfort, O LORD. Hot indignation seizes me because of the wicked, who forsake thy law. Thy statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimage. I remember thy name in the night, O LORD, and keep thy law. This blessing has fallen to me, that I have kept thy precepts. The LORD is my portion; I promise to keep thy words. I entreat thy favor with all my heart; be gracious to me according to thy promise. When I think of thy ways, I turn my feet to thy testimonies; I hasten and do not delay to keep thy commandments. Though the cords of the wicked ensnare me, I do not forget thy law. At midnight I rise to praise thee, because of thy righteous ordinances. I am a companion of all who fear thee, of those who keep thy precepts. The earth, O LORD, is full of thy steadfast love; teach me thy statutes! Thou hast dealt well with thy servant, O LORD, according to thy word. Teach me good judgment and knowledge, for I believe in thy commandments. Before I was afflicted I went astray; but now I keep thy word. Thou art good and doest good; teach me thy statutes. The godless besmear me with lies, but with my whole heart I keep thy precepts; their heart is gross like fat, but I delight in thy law. It is good for me that I was afflicted, that I might learn thy statutes. The law of thy mouth is better to me than thousands of gold and silver pieces.
