Psalm 119

Psalm 119[a]

א Aleph

Blessed are those whose ways are blameless,
    who walk according to the law of the Lord.
Blessed are those who keep his statutes
    and seek him with all their heart—
they do no wrong
    but follow his ways.
You have laid down precepts
    that are to be fully obeyed.
Oh, that my ways were steadfast
    in obeying your decrees!
Then I would not be put to shame
    when I consider all your commands.
I will praise you with an upright heart
    as I learn your righteous laws.
I will obey your decrees;
    do not utterly forsake me.

ב Beth

How can a young person stay on the path of purity?
    By living according to your word.
10 I seek you with all my heart;
    do not let me stray from your commands.
11 I have hidden your word in my heart
    that I might not sin against you.
12 Praise be to you, Lord;
    teach me your decrees.
13 With my lips I recount
    all the laws that come from your mouth.
14 I rejoice in following your statutes
    as one rejoices in great riches.
15 I meditate on your precepts
    and consider your ways.
16 I delight in your decrees;
    I will not neglect your word.

17 Be good to your servant while I live,
    that I may obey your word.
18 Open my eyes that I may see
    wonderful things in your law.
19 I am a stranger on earth;
    do not hide your commands from me.
20 My soul is consumed with longing
    for your laws at all times.
21 You rebuke the arrogant, who are accursed,
    those who stray from your commands.
22 Remove from me their scorn and contempt,
    for I keep your statutes.
23 Though rulers sit together and slander me,
    your servant will meditate on your decrees.
24 Your statutes are my delight;
    they are my counselors.

    for you have given me hope.
50 My comfort in my suffering is this:
    Your promise preserves my life.
51 The arrogant mock me unmercifully,
    but I do not turn from your law.
52 I remember, Lord, your ancient laws,
    and I find comfort in them.
53 Indignation grips me because of the wicked,
    who have forsaken your law.
54 Your decrees are the theme of my song
    wherever I lodge.
55 In the night, Lord, I remember your name,
    that I may keep your law.
56 This has been my practice:
    I obey your precepts.

62 At midnight I rise to give you thanks
    for your righteous laws.

67 Before I was afflicted I went astray,
    but now I obey your word.
68 You are good, and what you do is good;
    teach me your decrees.
69 Though the arrogant have smeared me with lies,
    I keep your precepts with all my heart.
70 Their hearts are callous and unfeeling,
    but I delight in your law.
71 It was good for me to be afflicted
    so that I might learn your decrees.
72 The law from your mouth is more precious to me
    than thousands of pieces of silver and gold.

    I say, “When will you comfort me?”
83 Though I am like a wineskin in the smoke,
    I do not forget your decrees.
84 How long must your servant wait?
    When will you punish my persecutors?
85 The arrogant dig pits to trap me,
    contrary to your law.
86 All your commands are trustworthy;
    help me, for I am being persecuted without cause.
87 They almost wiped me from the earth,
    but I have not forsaken your precepts.
88 In your unfailing love preserve my life,
    that I may obey the statutes of your mouth.

89 Your word, Lord, is eternal;
    it stands firm in the heavens.
90 Your faithfulness continues through all generations;
    you established the earth, and it endures.

    for all things serve you.
92 If your law had not been my delight,
    I would have perished in my affliction.
93 I will never forget your precepts,
    for by them you have preserved my life.
94 Save me, for I am yours;
    I have sought out your precepts.
95 The wicked are waiting to destroy me,

    so that I might obey your word.
102 I have not departed from your laws,
    for you yourself have taught me.
103 How sweet are your words to my taste,
    sweeter than honey to my mouth!
104 I gain understanding from your precepts;
    therefore I hate every wrong path.

105 Your word is a lamp for my feet,
    a light on my path.
106 I have taken an oath and confirmed it,
    that I will follow your righteous laws.
107 I have suffered much;
    preserve my life, Lord, according to your word.
108 Accept, Lord, the willing praise of my mouth,
    and teach me your laws.
109 Though I constantly take my life in my hands,
    I will not forget your law.
110 The wicked have set a snare for me,

    do not let my hopes be dashed.
117 Uphold me, and I will be delivered;
    I will always have regard for your decrees.
118 You reject all who stray from your decrees,
    for their delusions come to nothing.

    therefore I love your statutes.
120 My flesh trembles in fear of you;
    I stand in awe of your laws.

    looking for your righteous promise.
124 Deal with your servant according to your love
    and teach me your decrees.
125 I am your servant; give me discernment
    that I may understand your statutes.
126 It is time for you to act, Lord;
    your law is being broken.
127 Because I love your commands
    more than gold, more than pure gold,
128 and because I consider all your precepts right,
    I hate every wrong path.

140 Your promises have been thoroughly tested,
    and your servant loves them.
141 Though I am lowly and despised,
    I do not forget your precepts.
142 Your righteousness is everlasting

152 Long ago I learned from your statutes
    that you established them to last forever.

133 求你照你的應許引導我的腳步,
不要讓罪惡轄制我。
134 求你救我脫離惡人的欺壓,
好使我能順服你的法則。
135 求你笑顏垂顧僕人,
將你的律例教導我。
136 我淚流成河,
因為人們不遵行你的律法。
137 耶和華啊,你是公義的,
你的法令是公正的。
138 你定的法度公義,完全可信。
139 我看見仇敵漠視你的話語,
就心急如焚。
140 你僕人喜愛你的應許,
因為你的應許可靠。
141 我雖然卑微、受人藐視,
但我銘記你的法則。
142 你的公義常存,
你的律法是真理。
143 我雖然遭遇困苦患難,
但你的命令是我的喜樂。
144 你的法度永遠公正,
求你幫助我明白你的法度,
使我可以存活。
145 耶和華啊,我迫切向你禱告,
求你應允我,
我必遵守你的律例。
146 我向你呼求,求你救我,
我必持守你的法度。
147 天不亮,
我就起來呼求你的幫助,
你的話語是我的盼望。
148 我整夜不睡,思想你的應許。
149 耶和華啊,你充滿慈愛,
求你垂聽我的呼求,
照你的法令保護我的性命。
150 作惡多端的人逼近了,
他們遠離你的律法。
151 但耶和華啊,你就在我身邊,
你的一切命令都是真理。
152 我很早就從你的法度中知道,
你的法度永遠長存。
153 求你眷顧苦難中的我,搭救我,
因為我沒有忘記你的律法。
154 求你為我伸冤,救贖我,
照著你的應許保護我的性命。
155 惡人不遵守你的律例,
以致得不到拯救。
156 耶和華啊,
你有無比的憐憫之心,
求你照你的法令保護我的性命。
157 迫害我的仇敵眾多,
但我卻沒有偏離你的法度。
158 我厭惡這些背棄你的人,
因為他們不遵行你的話。
159 耶和華啊,
你知道我多麼愛你的法則,
求你施慈愛保護我的生命。
160 你的話都是真理,
你一切公義的法令永不改變。
161 權貴無故迫害我,
但我的心對你的話充滿敬畏。
162 我喜愛你的應許,
如獲至寶。
163 我厭惡虛假,
喜愛你的律法。
164 因你公義的法令,
我要每天七次讚美你。
165 喜愛你律法的人常有平安,
什麼也不能使他跌倒。
166 耶和華啊,我等候你的拯救,
我遵行你的命令。
167 我深愛你的法度,一心遵守。
168 我遵守你的法則和法度,
你知道我做的每一件事。
169 耶和華啊,求你垂聽我的禱告,
照你的話賜我悟性。
170 求你垂聽我的祈求,
照你的應許拯救我。
171 願我的口湧出讚美,
因你將你的律例教導了我。
172 願我的舌頭歌頌你的應許,
因為你一切的命令盡都公義。
173 願你的手隨時幫助我,
因為我選擇了你的法則。
174 耶和華啊,我盼望你的拯救,
你的律法是我的喜樂。
175 求你讓我存活,我好讚美你,
願你的法令成為我的幫助。
176 我像隻迷途的羊,
求你來尋找僕人,
因為我沒有忘記你的命令。
