Psalm 119:1-16 (Show Context)

119:1 א (Alef)

How blessed are those whose actions are blameless,

who obey the law of the Lord.

2 How blessed are those who observe his rules

and seek him with all their heart,

3 who, moreover, do no wrong,

but follow in his footsteps.

4 You demand that your precepts

be carefully kept.

5 If only I were predisposed

to keep your statutes.

6 Then I would not be ashamed,

if I were focused on all your commands.

7 I will give you sincere thanks

when I learn your just regulations.

8 I will keep your statutes.

Do not completely abandon me.

9 ב (Bet)

How can a young person maintain a pure life?

By guarding it according to your instructions.

10 With all my heart I seek you.

Do not allow me to stray from your commands.

11 In my heart I store up your words,

so I might not sin against you.

12 You deserve praise, O Lord.

Teach me your statutes.

13 With my lips I proclaim

all the regulations you have revealed.

14 I rejoice in the lifestyle prescribed by your rules

as if they were riches of all kinds.

15 I will meditate on your precepts

and focus on your behavior.

16 I find delight in your statutes;

I do not forget your instructions.
