Psalm 119:137-144


137 Lord, you are righteous

and your laws are completely fair.

138 The rules that you have given to us are good and right.

We can trust them completely.

139 I am so upset that it almost kills me,

because my enemies do not accept your message.

140 I know that your promises are completely true.

I love them more than anything.

141 People do not respect me as anybody important.

But I do not forget your teaching.

142 You always do what is right

and you always will.

Your teaching is completely true.

143 I have much trouble and it makes me afraid,

but your commands make me happy.

144 Your rules are always fair.

Help me to understand them,

so that I may find true life.
