Remember your word to your servant by which you give me hope.
This is my comfort in affliction, your promise that gives me life.
Though the arrogant utterly scorn me, I do not turn from your teaching.
When I recite your edicts of old I am comforted, Lord.

Rage seizes me because of the wicked; they forsake your teaching.
Your laws become my songs wherever I make my home.
Even at night I remember your name in observance of your teaching, Lord.
This is my good fortune, for I have observed your precepts.

Psalm 119 continued – verses 49-56
