Psalm 119:65-72


65 Lord, you have blessed me, your servant,

as you have promised to do.

66 Teach me to understand what is right,

because I trust your commands.

67 Before you showed me what was right, I made mistakes,

but now I obey your teaching.

68 You are good and you do good things.

So please teach me your laws.

69 Proud people have told many lies against me,

but I love to obey your rules.

70 Those people do not understand anything,

but your Law makes me very happy.

71 When I suffered, it was good for me.

It helped me to learn your commands.

72 The rules that you have taught me are very valuable.

They are more valuable to me

than thousands of pieces of gold and silver.
