Your hands made me and fashioned me; give me insight to learn your commands.
Those who fear you rejoice to see me, because I hope in your word.
I know, Lord, that your edicts are just; though you afflict me, you are faithful.
May your love comfort me in accord with your promise to your servant.
Show me compassion that I may live, for your teaching is my delight.
Shame the proud for oppressing me unjustly, that I may study your precepts.
Let those who fear you turn to me, those who acknowledge your decrees.
May I be wholehearted toward your laws, that I may not be put to shame.
Psalm 119 continued – verses 73-80
