Faith in the Law of the LORD

89Your word, O LORD, will last forever;
it is eternal in heaven.
90Your faithfulness endures through all the ages;
you have set the earth in place, and it remains.
91All things remain to this day because of your command,
because they are all your servants.
92If your law had not been the source of my joy,
I would have died from my sufferings.
93I will never neglect your instructions,
because by them you have kept me alive.
94I am yours--save me!
I have tried to obey your commands.
95The wicked are waiting to kill me,
but I will meditate on your laws.
96I have learned that everything has limits;
but your commandment is perfect.

Love for the Law of the LORD

97How I love your law!
I think about it all day long.
98Your commandment is with me all the time
and makes me wiser than my enemies.
99I understand more than all my teachers,
because I meditate on your instructions.
100I have greater wisdom than those who are old,
because I obey your commands.
101I have avoided all evil conduct,
because I want to obey your word.
102I have not neglected your instructions,
because you yourself are my teacher.
103How sweet is the taste of your instructions--
sweeter even than honey!
104I gain wisdom from your laws,
and so I hate all bad conduct.

Light from the Law of the LORD

105Your word is a lamp to guide me
and a light for my path.
106I will keep my solemn promise
to obey your just instructions.
107My sufferings, LORD, are terrible indeed;
keep me alive, as you have promised.
108Accept my prayer of thanks, O LORD,
and teach me your commands.
109I am always ready to risk my life;
I have not forgotten your law.
110The wicked lay a trap for me,
but I have not disobeyed your commands.
111Your commandments are my eternal possession;
they are the joy of my heart.
112I have decided to obey your laws
until the day I die.
