You are righteous, Lord, and just are your edicts.
You have issued your decrees in justice and in surpassing faithfulness.
I am consumed with rage, because my foes forget your words.
Your servant loves your promise; it has been proved by fire.

Though belittled and despised, I do not forget your precepts.
Your justice is forever right, your teaching forever true.
Though distress and anguish come upon me, your commands are my delight.
Your decrees are forever just; give me discernment that I may live.

Psalm 119 continued – verses 137-144
