Psalm 119:1-30

     Happy are people of integrity,
       who follow the law of the LORD.

     Happy are those who obey his decrees
       and search for him with all their hearts.

     They do not compromise with evil,
       and they walk only in his paths.

     You have charged us
       to keep your commandments carefully.

     Oh, that my actions would consistently
       reflect your principles!

     Then I will not be disgraced
       when I compare my life with your commands.

     When I learn your righteous laws,
       I will thank you by living as I should!

     I will obey your principles.
       Please don't give up on me!

     How can a young person stay pure?
       By obeying your word and following its rules.

     I have tried my best to find you--
       don't let me wander from your commands.

     I have hidden your word in my heart,
       that I might not sin against you.

     Blessed are you, O LORD;
       teach me your principles.

     I have recited aloud
       all the laws you have given us.

     I have rejoiced in your decrees
       as much as in riches.

     I will study your commandments
       and reflect on your ways.

     I will delight in your principles
       and not forget your word.

     Be good to your servant,
       that I may live and obey your word.

     Open my eyes to see
       the wonderful truths in your law.

     I am but a foreigner here on earth;
       I need the guidance of your commands.
       Don't hide them from me!

     I am overwhelmed continually
       with a desire for your laws.

     You rebuke those cursed proud ones
       who wander from your commands.

     Don't let them scorn and insult me,
       for I have obeyed your decrees.

     Even princes sit and speak against me,
       but I will meditate on your principles.

     Your decrees please me;
       they give me wise advice.

     I lie in the dust, completely discouraged;
       revive me by your word.

     I told you my plans, and you answered.
       Now teach me your principles.

     Help me understand the meaning of your commandments,
       and I will meditate on your wonderful miracles.

     I weep with grief;
       encourage me by your word.

     Keep me from lying to myself;
       give me the privilege of knowing your law.

     I have chosen to be faithful;
       I have determined to live by your laws.
