Psalms 119 [Context] [Commentary] |
||Forever, O LORD,
Your word is settled in heaven.
||Your faithfulness continues throughout all generations;
You established the earth, and it stands.
||They stand this day according to Your ordinances,
For all things are Your servants.
||If Your law had not been my delight,
Then I would have perished in my affliction.
||I will never forget Your precepts,
For by them You have revived me.
||I am Yours, save me;
For I have sought Your precepts.
||The wicked wait for me to destroy me;
I shall diligently consider Your testimonies.
||I have seen a limit to all perfection;
Your commandment is exceedingly broad.
||O how I love Your law!
It is my meditation all the day.
||Your commandments make me wiser than my enemies,
For they are ever mine.
||I have more insight than all my teachers,
For Your testimonies are my meditation.
||I understand more than the aged,
Because I have observed Your precepts.
||I have restrained my feet from every evil way,
That I may keep Your word.
||I have not turned aside from Your ordinances,
For You Yourself have taught me.
||How sweet are Your words to my taste!
Yes, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
||From Your precepts I get understanding;
Therefore I hate every false way.
||Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light to my path.
||I have sworn and I will confirm it,
That I will keep Your righteous ordinances.
||I am exceedingly afflicted;
Revive me, O LORD, according to Your word.
||O accept the freewill offerings of my mouth, O LORD,
And teach me Your ordinances.
||My life is continually in my hand,
Yet I do not forget Your law.
||The wicked have laid a snare for me,
Yet I have not gone astray from Your precepts.
||I have inherited Your testimonies forever,
For they are the joy of my heart.
||I have inclined my heart to perform Your statutes
Forever, even to the end.
||I hate those who are double-minded,
But I love Your law.
||You are my hiding place and my shield;
I wait for Your word.
||Depart from me, evildoers,
That I may observe the commandments of my God.
||Sustain me according to Your word, that I may live;
And do not let me be ashamed of my hope.
||Uphold me that I may be safe,
That I may have regard for Your statutes continually.
||You have rejected all those who wander from Your statutes,
For their deceitfulness is useless.
||You have removed all the wicked of the earth like dross;
Therefore I love Your testimonies.
||My flesh trembles for fear of You,
And I am afraid of Your judgments.
||I have done justice and righteousness;
Do not leave me to my oppressors.
||Be surety for Your servant for good;
Do not let the arrogant oppress me.
||My eyes fail with longing for Your salvation
And for Your righteous word.
||Deal with Your servant according to Your lovingkindness
And teach me Your statutes.
||I am Your servant; give me understanding,
That I may know Your testimonies.
||It is time for the LORD to act,
For they have broken Your law.
||Therefore I love Your commandments
Above gold, yes, above fine gold.
||Therefore I esteem right all Your precepts concerning everything,
I hate every false way.
||Your testimonies are wonderful;
Therefore my soul observes them.
||The unfolding of Your words gives light;
It gives understanding to the simple.
||I opened my mouth wide and panted,
For I longed for Your commandments.
||Turn to me and be gracious to me,
After Your manner with those who love Your name.
||Establish my footsteps in Your word,
And do not let any iniquity have dominion over me.
||Redeem me from the oppression of man,
That I may keep Your precepts.
||Make Your face shine upon Your servant,
And teach me Your statutes.
||My eyes shed streams of water,
Because they do not keep Your law.
||Righteous are You, O LORD,
And upright are Your judgments.
||You have commanded Your testimonies in righteousness
And exceeding faithfulness.
||My zeal has consumed me,
Because my adversaries have forgotten Your words.
||Your word is very pure,
Therefore Your servant loves it.
||I am small and despised,
Yet I do not forget Your precepts.
||Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness,
And Your law is truth.
||Trouble and anguish have come upon me,
Yet Your commandments are my delight.
||Your testimonies are righteous forever;
Give me understanding that I may live.
||I cried with all my heart; answer me, O LORD !
I will observe Your statutes.
||I cried to You; save me
And I shall keep Your testimonies.
||I rise before dawn and cry for help;
I wait for Your words.
||My eyes anticipate the night watches,
That I may meditate on Your word.
||Hear my voice according to Your lovingkindness;
Revive me, O LORD, according to Your ordinances.
||Those who follow after wickedness draw near;
They are far from Your law.
||You are near, O LORD,
And all Your commandments are truth.
||Of old I have known from Your testimonies
That You have founded them forever.
||Look upon my affliction and rescue me,
For I do not forget Your law.
||Plead my cause and redeem me;
Revive me according to Your word.
||Salvation is far from the wicked,
For they do not seek Your statutes.
||Great are Your mercies, O LORD;
Revive me according to Your ordinances.
||Many are my persecutors and my adversaries,
Yet I do not turn aside from Your testimonies.
||I behold the treacherous and loathe them,
Because they do not keep Your word.
||Consider how I love Your precepts;
Revive me, O LORD, according to Your lovingkindness.
||The sum of Your word is truth,
And every one of Your righteous ordinances is everlasting.
||Princes persecute me without cause,
But my heart stands in awe of Your words.
||I rejoice at Your word,
As one who finds great spoil.
||I hate and despise falsehood,
But I love Your law.
||Seven times a day I praise You,
Because of Your righteous ordinances.
||Those who love Your law have great peace,
And nothing causes them to stumble.
||I hope for Your salvation, O LORD,
And do Your commandments.
||My soul keeps Your testimonies,
And I love them exceedingly.
||I keep Your precepts and Your testimonies,
For all my ways are before You.
||Let my cry come before You, O LORD;
Give me understanding according to Your word.
||Let my supplication come before You;
Deliver me according to Your word.
||Let my lips utter praise,
For You teach me Your statutes.
||Let my tongue sing of Your word,
For all Your commandments are righteousness.
||Let Your hand be ready to help me,
For I have chosen Your precepts.
||I long for Your salvation, O LORD,
And Your law is my delight.
||Let my soul live that it may praise You,
And let Your ordinances help me.
||I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek Your servant,
For I do not forget Your commandments.
