Psalm 119:73-80


73 You made me with your hands. You made me what I am.

Help me to understand things well,

so that I learn your commands.

74 People who respect you will be happy when they see me.

That is because I trust your word.

75 Lord, I know that your rules are good and fair.

When you sent trouble to me,

it was because you truly loved me.

76 Now, please use your faithful love

to comfort me.

That is what you promised to do for me, your servant.

77 Be kind to me so that I will live!

Your Law makes me really happy.

78 Proud men should be ashamed!

They have spoken lies against me.

79 Let the people who respect you come back to me.

Then they will learn to obey your rules.

80 Let me obey your commands completely.

Then I will not be ashamed.
