119:2 | Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are they who keep His testimonies, and who seek, inquire for and of Him and crave Him with the whole heart.
119:3 | Yes, they do no unrighteousness [no willful wandering from His precepts]; they walk in His ways.
119:4 | You have commanded us to keep Your precepts, that we should observe them diligently.
119:5 | Oh, that my ways were directed and established to observe Your statutes [hearing, receiving, loving, and obeying them]!
119:6 | Then shall I not be put to shame [by failing to inherit Your promises] when I have respect to all Your commandments.
119:7 | I will praise and give thanks to You with uprightness of heart when I learn [by sanctified experiences] Your righteous judgments [Your decisions against and punishments for particular lines of thought and conduct].
119:8 | I will keep Your statutes; O forsake me not utterly.
119:9 | How shall a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed and keeping watch [on himself] according to Your word [conforming his life to it].

119:20 | My heart is breaking with the longing that it has for Your ordinances and judgments at all times.
119:21 | You rebuke the proud and arrogant, the accursed ones, who err and wander from Your commandments.
119:22 | Take away from me reproach and contempt, for I keep Your testimonies.
119:23 | Princes also sat and talked against me, but Your servant meditated on Your statutes.
119:24 | Your testimonies also are my delight and my counselors.
119:25 | My earthly life cleaves to the dust; revive and stimulate me according to Your word!
119:26 | I have declared my ways and opened my griefs to You, and You listened to me; teach me Your statutes.

119:41 | Let Your mercy and loving-kindness come also to me, O Lord, even Your salvation according to Your promise;
119:42 | Then shall I have an answer for those who taunt and reproach me, for I lean on, rely on, and trust in Your word.

119:49 | Remember [fervently] the word and promise to Your servant, in which You have caused me to hope.
119:50 | This is my comfort and consolation in my affliction: that Your word has revived me and given me life.
119:51 | The proud have had me greatly in derision, yet have I not declined in my interest in or turned aside from Your law.
119:52 | When I have [earnestly] recalled Your ordinances from of old, O Lord, I have taken comfort.
119:53 | Burning indignation, terror, and sadness seize upon me because of the wicked, who forsake Your law.
119:54 | Your statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimage.
119:55 | I have [earnestly] remembered Your name, O Lord, in the night, and I have observed Your law.
119:56 | This I have had [as the gift of Your grace and as my reward]: that I have kept Your precepts [hearing, receiving, loving, and obeying them].
119:57 | You are my portion, O Lord; I have promised to keep Your words.
119:58 | I entreated Your favor with my whole heart; be merciful and gracious to me according to Your promise.
119:59 | I considered my ways; I turned my feet to [obey] Your testimonies.
119:60 | I made haste and delayed not to keep Your commandments.
119:61 | Though the cords of the wicked have enclosed and ensnared me, I have not forgotten Your law.
119:62 | At midnight I will rise to give thanks to You because of Your righteous ordinances.
119:63 | I am a companion of all those who fear, revere, and worship You, and of those who observe and give heed to Your precepts.
119:64 | The earth, O Lord, is full of Your mercy and loving-kindness; teach me Your statutes.
119:65 | You have dealt well with Your servant, O Lord, according to Your promise.
119:66 | Teach me good judgment, wise and right discernment, and knowledge, for I have believed (trusted, relied on, and clung to) Your commandments.
119:67 | Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now Your word do I keep [hearing, receiving, loving, and obeying it].
119:68 | You are good and kind and do good; teach me Your statutes.
119:69 | The arrogant and godless have put together a lie against me, but I will keep Your precepts with my whole heart.
119:70 | Their hearts are as fat as grease [their minds are dull and brutal], but I delight in Your law.
119:71 | It is good for me that I have been afflicted, that I might learn Your statutes.
119:72 | The law from Your mouth is better to me than thousands of gold and silver pieces.
119:73 | Your hands have made me, cunningly fashioned and established me; give me understanding, that I may learn Your commandments.
119:74 | Those who reverently and worshipfully fear You will see me and be glad, because I have hoped in Your word and tarried for it.
119:75 | I know, O Lord, that Your judgments are right and righteous, and that in faithfulness You have afflicted me.
119:76 | Let, I pray You, Your merciful kindness and steadfast love be for my comfort, according to Your promise to Your servant.
119:77 | Let Your tender mercy and loving-kindness come to me that I may live, for Your law is my delight!
119:78 | Let the proud be put to shame, for they dealt perversely with me without a cause; but I will meditate on Your precepts.
119:79 | Let those who reverently and worshipfully fear You turn to me, and those who have known Your testimonies.
119:80 | Let my heart be sound (sincere and wholehearted and blameless) in Your statutes, that I may not be put to shame.
119:81 | My soul languishes and grows faint for Your salvation, but I hope in Your word.
119:82 | My eyes fail, watching for [the fulfillment of] Your promise. I say, When will You comfort me?
119:83 | For I have become like a bottle [a wineskin blackened and shriveled] in the smoke [in which it hangs], yet do I not forget Your statutes.
119:84 | How many are the days of Your servant [which he must endure]? When will You judge those who pursue and persecute me?
119:85 | The godless and arrogant have dug pitfalls for me, men who do not conform to Your law.
119:86 | All Your commandments are faithful and sure. [The godless] pursue and persecute me with falsehood; help me [Lord]!
119:87 | They had almost consumed me upon earth, but I forsook not Your precepts.
119:88 | According to Your steadfast love give life to me; then I will keep the testimony of Your mouth [hearing, receiving, loving, and obeying it].
119:89 | Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven [stands firm as the heavens].
119:90 | Your faithfulness is from generation to generation; You have established the earth, and it stands fast.
119:91 | All [the whole universe] are Your servants; therefore they continue this day according to Your ordinances.
119:92 | Unless Your law had been my delight, I would have perished in my affliction.
119:93 | I will never forget Your precepts, [how can I?] for it is by them You have quickened me (granted me life).
119:94 | I am Yours, therefore save me [Your own]; for I have sought (inquired of and for) Your precepts and required them [as my urgent need].
119:95 | The wicked wait for me to destroy me, but I will consider Your testimonies.
119:96 | I have seen that everything [human] has its limits and end [no matter how extensive, noble, and excellent]; but Your commandment is exceedingly broad and extends without limits [into eternity].
119:97 | Oh, how love I Your law! It is my meditation all the day.
119:98 | You, through Your commandments, make me wiser than my enemies, for [Your words] are ever before me.
119:99 | I have better understanding and deeper insight than all my teachers, because Your testimonies are my meditation.
119:100 | I understand more than the aged, because I keep Your precepts [hearing, receiving, loving, and obeying them].
119:101 | I have restrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep Your word [hearing, receiving, loving, and obeying it].
119:102 | I have not turned aside from Your ordinances, for You Yourself have taught me.
119:103 | How sweet are Your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
119:104 | Through Your precepts I get understanding; therefore I hate every false way.
119:105 | Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
119:106 | I have sworn [an oath] and have confirmed it, that I will keep Your righteous ordinances [hearing, receiving, loving, and obeying them].
119:107 | I am sorely afflicted; renew and quicken me [give me life], O Lord, according to Your word!
119:108 | Accept, I beseech You, the freewill offerings of my mouth, O Lord, and teach me Your ordinances.
119:109 | My life is continually in my hand, yet I do not forget Your law.
119:110 | The wicked have laid a snare for me, yet I do not stray from Your precepts.
119:111 | Your testimonies have I taken as a heritage forever, for they are the rejoicing of my heart.
119:112 | I have inclined my heart to perform Your statutes forever, even to the end.
119:113 | I hate the thoughts of undecided [in religion], double-minded people, but Your law do I love.
119:114 | You are my hiding place and my shield; I hope in Your word.
119:115 | Depart from me, you evildoers, that I may keep the commandments of my God [hearing, receiving, loving, and obeying them].
119:116 | Uphold me according to Your promise, that I may live; and let me not be put to shame in my hope!
119:117 | Hold me up, that I may be safe and have regard for Your statutes continually!
119:118 | You spurn and set at nought all those who stray from Your statutes, for their own lying deceives them and their tricks are in vain.
119:119 | You put away and count as dross all the wicked of the earth [for there is no true metal in them]; therefore I love Your testimonies.
119:120 | My flesh trembles and shudders for fear and reverential, worshipful awe of You, and I am afraid and in dread of Your judgments.
119:121 | I have done justice and righteousness; leave me not to those who would oppress me.
119:122 | Be surety for Your servant for good [as Judah was surety for the safety of Benjamin]; let not the proud oppress me.
119:123 | My eyes fail, watching for Your salvation and for the fulfillment of Your righteous promise.
119:124 | Deal with Your servant according to Your mercy and loving-kindness, and teach me Your statutes.
119:125 | I am Your servant; give me understanding (discernment and comprehension), that I may know (discern and be familiar with the character of) Your testimonies.
119:126 | It is time for the Lord to act; they have frustrated Your law.
119:127 | Therefore I love Your commandments more than [resplendent] gold, yes, more than [perfectly] refined gold.
119:128 | Therefore I esteem as right all, yes, all Your precepts; I hate every false way.
119:129 | Your testimonies are wonderful [far exceeding anything conceived by man]; therefore my [penitent] self keeps them [hearing, receiving, loving, and obeying them].
119:130 | The entrance and unfolding of Your words give light; their unfolding gives understanding (discernment and comprehension) to the simple.
119:131 | I opened my mouth and panted [with eager desire], for I longed for Your commandments.
119:132 | Look upon me, be merciful unto me, and show me favor, as is Your way to those who love Your name.
119:133 | Establish my steps and direct them by [means of] Your word; let not any iniquity have dominion over me.
119:134 | Deliver me from the oppression of man; so will I keep Your precepts [hearing, receiving, loving, and obeying them].
119:135 | Make Your face shine [with pleasure] upon Your servant, and teach me Your statutes.
119:136 | Streams of water run down my eyes, because men do not keep Your law [they hear it not, nor receive it, love it, or obey it].
119:137 | [Rigidly] righteous are You, O Lord, and upright are Your judgments and all expressions of Your will.
119:138 | You have commanded and appointed Your testimonies in righteousness and in great faithfulness.
119:139 | My zeal has consumed me and cut me off, because my adversaries have forgotten Your words.
119:140 | Your word is very pure (tried and well refined); therefore Your servant loves it.
119:141 | I am small (insignificant) and despised, but I do not forget Your precepts.
119:142 | Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and Your law is truth.
119:143 | Trouble and anguish have found and taken hold on me, yet Your commandments are my delight.
119:144 | Your righteous testimonies are everlasting and Your decrees are binding to eternity; give me understanding and I shall live [give me discernment and comprehension and I shall not die].
119:145 | I cried with my whole heart; hear me, O Lord; I will keep Your statutes [I will hear, receive, love, and obey them].
119:146 | I cried to You; save me, that I may keep Your testimonies [hearing, receiving, loving, and obeying them].
119:147 | I anticipated the dawning of the morning and cried [in childlike prayer]; I hoped in Your word.
119:148 | My eyes anticipate the night watches and I am awake before the cry of the watchman, that I may meditate on Your word.
119:149 | Hear my voice according to Your steadfast love; O Lord, quicken me and give me life according to Your [righteous] decrees.
119:150 | They draw near who follow after wrong thinking and persecute me with wickedness; they are far from Your law.
119:151 | You are near, O Lord [nearer to me than my foes], and all Your commandments are truth.
119:152 | Of old have I known Your testimonies, and for a long time, [therefore it is a thoroughly established conviction] that You have founded them forever.
119:153 | Consider my affliction and deliver me, for I do not forget Your law.
119:154 | Plead my cause and redeem me; revive me and give me life according to Your word.
119:155 | Salvation is far from the wicked, for they seek not nor hunger for Your statutes.
119:156 | Great are Your tender mercy and loving-kindness, O Lord; give me life according to Your ordinances.
119:157 | Many are my persecutors and my adversaries, yet I do not swerve from Your testimonies.
119:158 | I behold the treacherous and am grieved and loathe them, because they do not respect Your law [neither hearing, receiving, loving, nor obeying it].
119:159 | Consider how I love Your precepts; revive me and give life to me, O Lord, according to Your loving-kindness!
119:160 | The sum of Your word is truth [the total of the full meaning of all Your individual precepts]; and every one of Your righteous decrees endures forever.
119:161 | Princes pursue and persecute me without cause, but my heart stands in awe of Your words [dreading violation of them far more than the force of prince or potentate].
119:162 | I rejoice at Your word as one who finds great spoil.
119:163 | I hate and abhor falsehood, but Your law do I love.
119:164 | Seven times a day and all day long do I praise You because of Your righteous decrees.
119:165 | Great peace have they who love Your law; nothing shall offend them or make them stumble.
119:166 | I am hoping and waiting [eagerly] for Your salvation, O Lord, and I do Your commandments.
119:167 | Your testimonies have I kept [hearing, receiving, loving, and obeying them]; I love them exceedingly!
119:168 | I have observed Your precepts and Your testimonies, for all my ways are [fully known] before You.
119:169 | Let my mournful cry and supplication come [near] before You, O Lord; give me understanding (discernment and comprehension) according to Your word [of assurance and promise].
119:170 | Let my supplication come before You; deliver me according to Your word!
119:171 | My lips shall pour forth praise [with thanksgiving and renewed trust] when You teach me Your statutes.
119:172 | My tongue shall sing [praise for the fulfillment] of Your word, for all Your commandments are righteous.
119:173 | Let Your hand be ready to help me, for I have chosen Your precepts.
119:174 | I have longed for Your salvation, O Lord, and Your law is my delight.
119:175 | Let me live that I may praise You, and let Your decrees help me.
119:176 | I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek, inquire for, and demand Your servant, for I do not forget Your commandments.
