Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light for my path.
I make a solemn vow to keep your just edicts.
I am very much afflicted, Lord; give me life in accord with your word.
Accept my freely offered praise; Lord, teach me your decrees.

My life is always at risk, but I do not forget your teaching.
The wicked have set snares for me, but from your precepts I do not stray.
Your decrees are my heritage forever; they are the joy of my heart.
My heart is set on fulfilling your laws; they are my reward forever.

Psalm 119 continued – verses 105-112
