Psalms Chapter 119
119:65 Thou hast dealt well with thy servant, O LORD, according unto thy
119:66 Teach me good judgment and knowledge: for I have believed thy
119:67 Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy
119:68 Thou art good, and doest good; teach me thy statutes.
119:69 The proud have forged a lie against me: but I will keep thy
precepts with my whole heart.
119:70 Their heart is as fat as grease; but I delight in thy law.
119:71 It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn
119:72 The law of thy mouth is better unto me than thousands of gold and
119:73 Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding,
that I may learn thy commandments.
119:74 They that fear thee will be glad when they see me; because I have
hoped in thy word.
119:75 I know, O LORD, that thy judgments are right, and that thou in
faithfulness hast afflicted me.
119:76 Let, I pray thee, thy merciful kindness be for my comfort,
according to thy word unto thy servant.
119:77 Let thy tender mercies come unto me, that I may live: for thy law
is my delight.
119:78 Let the proud be ashamed; for they dealt perversely with me
without a cause: but I will meditate in thy precepts.
119:79 Let those that fear thee turn unto me, and those that have known
119:80 Let my heart be sound in thy statutes; that I be not ashamed.
