I lie prostrate in the dust; give me life in accord with your word.
I disclosed my ways and you answered me; teach me your laws.
Make me understand the way of your precepts; I will ponder your wondrous deeds.
I weep in bitter pain; in accord with your word strengthen me.

Lead me from the way of deceit; favor me with your teaching.
The way of loyalty I have chosen; I have set your edicts before me.
I cling to your decrees, Lord; do not let me come to shame.
I will run the way of your commands, for you open my docile heart.

Psalm 119 continued – verses 25-32
