Psalms 119:89-112

  Forever, O LORD, your word
    is firmly fixed in the heavens.
  Your faithfulness endures to all generations;
    you have established the earth, and it stands fast.
  By your appointment they stand this day,
    for all things are your servants.
  If your law had not been my delight,
    I would have perished in my affliction.
  I will never forget your precepts,
    for by them you have given me life.
  I am yours; save me,
    for I have sought your precepts.
  The wicked lie in wait to destroy me,
    but I consider your testimonies.
  I have seen a limit to all perfection,
    but your commandment is exceedingly broad.

  Oh how I love your law!
    It is my meditation all the day.
  Your commandment makes me wiser than my enemies,
    for it is ever with me.
  I have more understanding than all my teachers,
    for your testimonies are my meditation.
  I understand more than the aged,
    for I keep your precepts.
  I hold back my feet from every evil way,
    in order to keep your word.
  I do not turn aside from your rules,
    for you have taught me.
  How sweet are your words to my taste,
    sweeter than honey to my mouth!
  Through 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 an oath and confirmed it,
    to keep your righteous rules.
  I am severely afflicted;
    give me life, O LORD, according to your word!
  Accept my freewill offerings of praise, O LORD,
    and teach me your rules.
  I hold my life in my hand continually,
    but I do not forget your law.
  The wicked have laid a snare for me,
    but I do not stray from your precepts.
  Your testimonies are my heritage forever,
    for they are the joy of my heart.
  I incline my heart to perform your statutes
    forever, to the end.
