You are my inheritance, O Yahweh.
I promised to hold on to your words.
With all my heart I want to win your favor.
Be kind to me as you promised.
I have thought about my life,
and I have directed my feet back to your written instructions.
Without any hesitation, I hurry to obey your commandments.
Though the ropes of wicked people are tied around me,
I never forget your teachings.
At midnight I wake up to give thanks to you
for the regulations, which are based on your righteousness.
I am a friend to everyone who fears you
and to everyone who follows your guiding principles.
Your mercy, O Yahweh, fills the earth.
Teach me your laws. (Psalm 119:57-64)
How can a young person keep his life pure?
He can do it by holding on to your word.
I wholeheartedly searched for you.
Do not let me wander away from your commandments.
I have treasured your promise in my heart
so that I may not sin against you.
Thanks be to you, O Yahweh.
Teach me your laws.
With my lips, I have repeated
every regulation that comes from your mouth.
I find joy in the way shown by your written instructions
more than I find joy in all kinds of riches.
I want to reflect on your guiding principles
and study your ways.
Your laws make me happy.
I never forget your word (Psalm 119:9-16)
Elohim is our Refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in times of trouble (Psalm 46:1)
Yahweh takes pleasure in his people.
He crowns those who are oppressed with victory (Psalm 149:4)
There is nothing but truth in your word,
and all of your righteous regulations endure forever (Psalm 119:160)
Without any hesitation I hurry to obey your commandments (Psalm 119:60)
The word of Yahweh is correct,
and everything he does is trustworthy (Psalm 33:4)
