73 Your hands made me and [a]fashioned me; Give me understanding, that I may learn Your commandments. 74 May those who [b]fear You see me and be glad, Because I [c]wait for Your word. 75 I know, O Lord, that Your judgments are righteous, And that in faithfulness You have afflicted me. 76 O may Your lovingkindness [d]comfort me, According to Your [e]word to Your servant. 77 May Your compassion come to me that I may live, For Your law is my delight. 78 May the arrogant be ashamed, for they subvert me with a lie; But I shall meditate on Your precepts. 79 May those who [f]fear You turn to me, Even those who know Your testimonies. 80 May my heart be [g]blameless in Your statutes, So that I will not be ashamed.
81 My soul languishes for Your salvation; I [h]wait for Your word. 82 My eyes fail with longing for Your [i]word, [j]While I say, “When will You comfort me?” 83 Though I have become like a wineskin in the smoke, I do not forget Your statutes. 84 How many are the days of Your servant? When will You execute judgment on those who persecute me? 85 The arrogant have dug pits for me, Men who are not [k]in accord with Your law. 86 All Your commandments are faithful; They have persecuted me with a lie; help me! 87 They almost destroyed me [l]on earth, But as for me, I did not forsake Your precepts. 88 Revive me according to Your lovingkindness, So that I may keep the testimony of Your mouth.
89 Forever, O Lord, Your word [m]is settled in heaven. 90 Your faithfulness continues[n]throughout all generations; You established the earth, and it stands. 91 They stand this day according to Your ordinances, For all things are Your servants. 92 If Your law had not been my delight, Then I would have perished in my affliction. 93 I will never forget Your precepts, For by them You have [o]revived me. 94 I am Yours, save me; For I have sought Your precepts. 95 The wicked wait for me to destroy me; I shall diligently consider Your testimonies. 96 I have seen [p]a limit to all perfection; Your commandment is exceedingly broad.
