Psalm 119:25-48 Revised Standard Version (RSV)

25 My soul cleaves to the dust;
    revive me according to thy word!
26 When I told of my ways, thou didst answer me;
    teach me thy statutes!
27 Make me understand the way of thy precepts,
    and I will meditate on thy wondrous works.
28 My soul melts away for sorrow;
    strengthen me according to thy word!
29 Put false ways far from me;
    and graciously teach me thy law!
30 I have chosen the way of faithfulness,
    I set thy ordinances before me.
31 I cleave to thy testimonies, O Lord;
    let me not be put to shame!
32 I will run in the way of thy commandments
    when thou enlargest my understanding!

33 Teach me, O Lord, the way of thy statutes;
    and I will keep it to the end.
34 Give me understanding, that I may keep thy law
    and observe it with my whole heart.
35 Lead me in the path of thy commandments,
    for I delight in it.
36 Incline my heart to thy testimonies,
    and not to gain!
37 Turn my eyes from looking at vanities;
    and give me life in thy ways.
38 Confirm to thy servant thy promise,
    which is for those who fear thee.
39 Turn away the reproach which I dread;
    for thy ordinances are good.
40 Behold, I long for thy precepts;
    in thy righteousness give me life!

41 Let thy steadfast love come to me, O Lord,
    thy salvation according to thy promise;
42 then shall I have an answer for those who taunt me,
    for I trust in thy word.
43 And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth,
    for my hope is in thy ordinances.
44 I will keep thy law continually,
    for ever and ever;
45 and I shall walk at liberty,
    for I have sought thy precepts.
46 I will also speak of thy testimonies before kings,
    and shall not be put to shame;
47 for I find my delight in thy commandments,
    which I love.
48 I revere thy commandments, which I love,
    and I will meditate on thy statutes.
