Psalm 119:105-112

105-112By your words I can see where I'm going;

they throw a beam of light on my dark path.

I've committed myself and I'll never turn back

from living by your righteous order.

Everything's falling apart on me, God;

put me together again with your Word.

Festoon me with your finest sayings, God;

teach me your holy rules.

My life is as close as my own hands,

but I don't forget what you have revealed.

The wicked do their best to throw me off track,

but I don't swerve an inch from your course.

I inherited your book on living; it's mine forever—

what a gift! And how happy it makes me!

I concentrate on doing exactly what you say—

I always have and always will.

113-120I hate the two-faced,

but I love your clear-cut revelation.

You're my place of quiet retreat;

I wait for your Word to renew me.

Get out of my life, evildoers,

so I can keep my God's commands.

Take my side as you promised; I'll live then for sure.

Don't disappoint all my grand hopes.

Stick with me and I'll be all right;

I'll give total allegiance to your definitions of life.

Expose all who drift away from your sayings;

their casual idolatry is lethal.

You reject earth's wicked as so much rubbish;

therefore I lovingly embrace everything you say.

I shiver in awe before you;

your decisions leave me speechless with reverence.
