Oh, that my ways were directed
To keep Your statutes!
Then I would not be ashamed,
When I look into all Your commandments.
Your word I have hidden in my heart,
That I might not sin against You.
Blessed are You, O Lord!
Teach me Your statutes.
Teach me good judgment and knowledge,
For I believe Your commandments.
Forever, O Lord,
Your word is settled in heaven.
Your faithfulness endures to all generations;
You established the earth, and it abides.
They continue this day according to Your ordinances,
For all are Your servants.
Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light to my path.
You are my hiding place and my shield;
I hope in Your word.
The entirety of Your word is truth,
And every one of Your righteous judgments endures forever.
from Psalm 119
