Psalm 119:67New Living Translation (NLT)
67 I used to wander off until you disciplined me;
but now I closely follow your word.
Psalm 119:67Amplified Bible (AMP)
Before I was afflicted I went astray,
But now I keep and honor Your word [with loving obedience].
Psalm 119:67-72The Message (MSG)
65-72 Be good to your servant, God;
be as good as your Word.
Train me in good common sense;
I’m thoroughly committed to living your way.
Before I learned to answer you, I wandered all over the place,
but now I’m in step with your Word.
You are good, and the source of good;
train me in your goodness.
The godless spread lies about me,
but I focus my attention on what you are saying;
They’re bland as a bucket of lard,
while I dance to the tune of your revelation.
My troubles turned out all for the best—
they forced me to learn from your textbook.
Truth from your mouth means more to me
than striking it rich in a gold mine.
Psalm 119:67King James Version (KJV)
67 Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word.
