Psalm 119:89-176 New King James Version

89  Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven. 90  Your faithfulness endures to all generations; You established the earth, and it abides. 91  They continue this day according to Your ordinances, For all are Your servants.

92  Unless Your law had been my delight, I would then have perished in my affliction.

93  I will never forget Your precepts, For by them You have given me life.

94  I am Yours, save me; For I have sought Your precepts.

95  The wicked wait for me to destroy me, But I will consider Your testimonies.

96  I have seen the consummation of all perfection, But Your commandment is exceedingly broad.

97  Oh, how I love Your law! It is my meditation all the day.

98  You, through Your commandments, make me wiser than my enemies; For they are ever with me. 99  I have more understanding than all my teachers, For Your testimonies are my meditation. 100  I understand more than the ancients, Because I keep Your precepts.

101  I have restrained my feet from every evil way, That I may keep Your word.

102  I have not departed from Your judgments, For You Yourself have taught me.

103  How sweet are Your words to my taste, Sweeter than honey to my mouth! 104  Through Your precepts I get understanding; Therefore I hate every false way.

105  Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.

106  I have sworn and confirmed That I will keep Your righteous judgments.

107  I am afflicted very much; Revive me, O Lord, according to Your word.

108  Accept, I pray, the freewill offerings of my mouth, O Lord, And teach me Your judgments.

109  My life is continually in my hand, Yet I do not forget Your law. 110  The wicked have laid a snare for me, Yet I have not strayed from Your precepts.

111  Your testimonies I have taken as a heritage forever, For they are the rejoicing of my heart. 112  I have inclined my heart to perform Your statutes Forever, to the very end.

113  I hate the double-minded, But I love Your law.

114  You are my hiding place and my shield; I hope in Your word.

115  Depart from me, you evildoers, For I will keep the commandments of my God!

116  Uphold me according to Your word, that I may live; And do not let me be ashamed of my hope. 117  Hold me up, and I shall be safe, And I shall observe Your statutes continually.

118  You reject all those who stray from Your statutes, For their deceit is falsehood. 119  You put away all the wicked of the earth like dross; Therefore I love Your testimonies. 120  My flesh trembles for fear of You, And I am afraid of Your judgments.

121  I have done justice and righteousness; Do not leave me to my oppressors. 122  Be surety for Your servant for good; Do not let the proud oppress me.

123  My eyes fail from seeking Your salvation And Your righteous word.

124  Deal with Your servant according to Your mercy, And teach me Your statutes. 125  I am Your servant; Give me understanding, That I may know Your testimonies.

126  It is time for You to act, O Lord, For they have regarded Your law as void.

127  Therefore I love Your commandments More than gold, yes, than fine gold! 128  Therefore all Your precepts concerning all things I consider to be right; I hate every false way.

129  Your testimonies are wonderful; Therefore my soul keeps them.

130  The entrance of Your words gives light; It gives understanding to the simple.

131  I opened my mouth and panted, For I longed for Your commandments.

132  Look upon me and be merciful to me, As Your custom is toward those who love Your name.

133  Direct my steps by Your word, And let no iniquity have dominion over me.

134  Redeem me from the oppression of man, That I may keep Your precepts.

135  Make Your face shine upon Your servant, And teach me Your statutes.

136  Rivers of water run down from my eyes, Because men do not keep Your law.

137  Righteous are You, O Lord, And upright are Your judgments. 138  Your testimonies, which You have commanded, Are righteous and very faithful.

139  My zeal has consumed me, Because my enemies have forgotten Your words.

140  Your word is very pure; Therefore Your servant loves it.

141  I am small and despised, Yet I do not forget Your precepts.

142  Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, And Your law is truth.

143  Trouble and anguish have overtaken me, Yet Your commandments are my delights. 144  The righteousness of Your testimonies is everlasting; Give me understanding, and I shall live.

145  I cry out with my whole heart; Hear me, O Lord! I will keep Your statutes. 146  I cry out to You; Save me, and I will keep Your testimonies.

147  I rise before the dawning of the morning, And cry for help; I hope in Your word. 148  My eyes are awake through the night watches, That I may meditate on Your word.

149  Hear my voice according to Your lovingkindness; O Lord, revive me according to Your justice.

150  They draw near who follow after wickedness; They are far from Your law. 151  You are near, O Lord, And all Your commandments are truth.

152  Concerning Your testimonies, I have known of old that You have founded them forever.

153  Consider my affliction and deliver me, For I do not forget Your law. 154  Plead my cause and redeem me; Revive me according to Your word.

155  Salvation is far from the wicked, For they do not seek Your statutes.

156  Great are Your tender mercies, O Lord; Revive me according to Your judgments.

157  Many are my persecutors and my enemies, Yet I do not turn from Your testimonies.

158  I see the treacherous, and am disgusted, Because they do not keep Your word.

159  Consider how I love Your precepts; Revive me, O Lord, according to Your lovingkindness.

160  The entirety of Your word is truth, And every one of Your righteous judgments endures forever.

161  Princes persecute me without a cause, But my heart stands in awe of Your word.

162  I rejoice at Your word As one who finds great treasure.

163  I hate and abhor lying, But I love Your law.

164  Seven times a day I praise You, Because of Your righteous judgments.

165  Great peace have those who love Your law, And nothing causes them to stumble.

166  Lord, I hope for Your salvation, And I do Your commandments.

167  My soul keeps Your testimonies, And I love them exceedingly. 168  I keep Your precepts and Your testimonies, For all my ways are before You.

169  Let my cry come before You, O Lord; Give me understanding according to Your word. 170  Let my supplication come before You; Deliver me according to Your word.

171  My lips shall utter praise, For You teach me Your statutes.

172  My tongue shall speak of Your word, For all Your commandments are righteousness.

173  Let Your hand become my help, For I have chosen Your precepts. 174  I long for Your salvation, O Lord, And Your law is my delight.

175  Let my soul live, and it shall praise You; And let Your judgments help me.

176  I have gone astray like a lost sheep; Seek Your servant, For I do not forget Your commandments.
