Psalm 119:1-24
Aleph
Blessed are they whose way is blameless, *
who walk in the law of the LORD!
Blessed are they who keep his testimonies, *
who seek him with their whole heart,
Who also do no unrighteousness, *
but always walk in his ways!
You have laid down your precepts, *
that we should keep them diligently.
Oh, that my ways may be steadfast *
in keeping your decrees!
Then I shall not be put to shame, *
when I consider all your commandments.
I will praise you with an upright heart, *
when I have learned your righteous rules.
I will keep your decrees; *
do not utterly forsake me!
Beth
How can a young man keep his way pure? *
By guarding it according to your word.
With my whole heart I seek you; *
Oh let me not wander from your commandments!
Your word have I hidden in my heart, *
that I might not sin against you.
Blessed are you, O LORD; *
teach me your decrees!
With my lips I have declared *
all the judgements of your mouth.
I delight in the way of your statutes *
as much as in all manner of riches.
I will meditate on your precepts *
and fix my eyes on your ways.
I will delight myself in your statutes; *
I will not forget your word.
Gimel
Deal bountifully with your servant, *
that I may live and keep your word.
Open my eyes, that I may see *
the wondrous things in your law.
I am a sojourner on the earth; *
do not hide your commandments from me.
My soul is consumed at all times *
with longing for your ordinances.
You rebuke the insolent, *
the accursed ones, who stray from your commandments.
Remove from me scorn and contempt, *
for I have kept your testimonies.
Though princes sit and plot against me, *
your servant will meditate on your decrees.
Indeed, your statutes are my delight; *
they are my counselors.
