New King James Version
169 Let my cry come before You, O Lord;
(A)Give me understanding according to Your word.
170 Let my [a]supplication come before You;
Deliver me according to Your word.
171 (B)My lips shall utter praise,
For You teach me Your statutes.
172 My tongue shall speak of Your word,
For all Your commandments are righteousness.
173 Let Your hand become my help,
For (C)I have chosen Your precepts.
174 (D)I long for Your salvation, O Lord,
And (E)Your law is my delight.
175 Let my soul live, and it shall praise You;
And let Your judgments help me.
176 (F)I have gone astray like a lost sheep;
Seek Your servant,
For I do not forget Your commandments.
- Psalm 119:170 Prayer of supplication
