(Read Psalms 119 Part 1 First)

56 This is my happy way of life: obeying your commandments.

57 LORD, you are mine! I promise to obey your words!

58 With all my heart I want your blessings. Be merciful just as you promised.

59 I pondered the direction of my life, and I turned to follow your statutes.

60 I will hurry, without lingering, to obey your commands.

61 Evil people try to drag me into sin, but I am firmly anchored to your law.

62 At midnight I rise to thank you for your just laws.

63 Anyone who fears you is my friend-- anyone who obeys your commandments.

64 O LORD, the earth is full of your unfailing love; teach me your principles.

65 You have done many good things for me, LORD, just as you promised.

66 I believe in your commands; now teach me good judgment and knowledge.

67 I used to wander off until you disciplined me; but now I closely follow your word.

68 You are good and do only good; teach me your principles.

69 Arrogant people have made up lies about me, but in truth I obey your commandments with all my heart.

70 Their hearts are dull and stupid, but I delight in your law.

71 The suffering you sent was good for me, for it taught me to pay attention to your principles.

72 Your law is more valuable to me than millions in gold and silver!

73 You made me; you created me. Now give me the sense to follow your commands.

74 May all who fear you find in me a cause for joy, for I have put my hope in your word.

75 I know, O LORD, that your decisions are fair; you disciplined me because I needed it.

76 Now let your unfailing love comfort me, just as you promised me, your servant.

77 Surround me with your tender mercies so I may live, for your law is my delight.

78 Bring disgrace upon the arrogant people who lied about me; meanwhile, I will concentrate on your commandments.

79 Let me be reconciled with all who fear you and know your decrees.

80 May I be blameless in keeping your principles; then I will never have to be ashamed.

81 I faint with longing for your salvation; but I have put my hope in your word.

82 My eyes are straining to see your promises come true. When will you comfort me?

83 I am shriveled like a wineskin in the smoke, exhausted with waiting. But I cling to your principles and obey them.

84 How long must I wait? When will you punish those who persecute me?

85 These arrogant people who hate your law have dug deep pits for me to fall into.

86 All your commands are trustworthy. Protect me from those who hunt me down without cause.

87 They almost finished me off, but I refused to abandon your commandments.

88 In your unfailing love, spare my life; then I can continue to obey your decrees.

89 Forever, O LORD, your word stands firm in heaven.

90 Your faithfulness extends to every generation, as enduring as the earth you created.

91 Your laws remain true today, for everything serves your plans.

92 If your law hadn't sustained me with joy, I would have died in my misery.

93 I will never forget your commandments, for you have used them to restore my joy and health.

94 I am yours; save me! For I have applied myself to obey your commandments.

95 Though the wicked hide along the way to kill me, I will quietly keep my mind on your decrees.

96 Even perfection has its limits, but your commands have no limit.

97 Oh, how I love your law! I think about it all day long.

98 Your commands make me wiser than my enemies, for your commands are my constant guide.

99 Yes, I have more insight than my teachers, for I am always thinking of your decrees.

100 I am even wiser than my elders, for I have kept your commandments.

101 I have refused to walk on any path of evil, that I may remain obedient to your word.

102 I haven't turned away from your laws, for you have taught me well.

103 How sweet are your words to my taste; they are sweeter than honey.

104 Your commandments give me understanding; no wonder I hate every false way of life.

105 Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path.
