Psalm 119:121-136Contemporary English Version (CEV)
121 I did what was fair and right! Don’t hand me over to those who want to mistreat me. 122 Take good care of me, your servant, and don’t let me be harmed by those conceited people. 123 My eyes are weary from waiting to see you keep your promise to come and save me. 124 Show your love for me, your servant, and teach me your laws. 125 I serve you, so let me understand your teachings. 126 Do something, Lord! They have broken your Law. 127 Your laws mean more to me than the finest gold. 128 I follow all of your commands,[a] but I hate anyone who leads me astray.
129 Your teachings are wonderful, and I respect them all. 130 Understanding your word brings light to the minds of ordinary people. 131 I honestly want to know everything you teach. 132 Think about me and be kind, just as you are to everyone who loves your name. 133 Keep your promise and don’t let me stumble or let sin control my life. 134 Protect me from abuse, so I can obey your laws. 135 Smile on me, your servant, and teach me your laws. 136 When anyone disobeys you, my eyes overflow with tears.
