November 18 - Psalm 119.89-112

Sponsored by DailyBible Email

89Our LORD, you are eternal!
Your word will last as long as the heavens.
90You remain faithful in every generation,
and the earth you created will keep standing firm.
91All things are your servants,
and the laws you made are still in effect today.
92If I had not found happiness in obeying your Law,
I would have died in misery.
93I won't ever forget your teachings,
because you give me new life by following them.
94I belong to you, and I have respected your laws,
so keep me safe.
95Brutal enemies are waiting to ambush and destroy me,
but I obey your rules.
96Nothing is completely perfect, except your teachings.

97I deeply love your Law! I think about it all day.
98Your laws never leave my mind,
and they make me much wiser than my enemies.
99Thinking about your teachings
gives me better understanding than my teachers,
100and obeying your laws makes me wiser
than those who have lived a long time.
101I obey your word
instead of following a way that leads to trouble.
102You have been my teacher,
and I won't reject your instructions.
103Your teachings are sweeter than honey.
104They give me understanding and make me hate all lies.

105Your word is a lamp that gives light wherever I walk.
106Your laws are fair,
and I have given my word to respect them all.
107I am in terrible pain! Save me, LORD,
as you said you would.
108Accept my offerings of praise and teach me your laws.
109I never forget your teachings,
although my life is always in danger.
110Some merciless people are trying to trap me,
but I never turn my back on your teachings.
111They will always be my most prized possession
and my source of joy.
112I have made up my mind to obey your laws forever,
no matter what.
