Psalm 119:1–16


א Aleph

HowA happy are those whose way is blameless,b

who walk according to the Lord’s instruction!c

Happy are those who keep his decreesd

and seek him with all their heart.e

They do nothing wrong;f

they walk in his ways.

You have commanded that your preceptsg

be diligently kept.

If only my ways were committed

to keeping your statutes!h

Then I would not be ashamedi

when I think about all your commands.

I will praise you with an upright heartj

when I learn your righteous judgments.

I will keep your statutes;

never abandon me.k

ב Beth

How can a young man keep his way pure?

By keeping yourB word.l

10 I have sought you with all my heart;m

don’t let me wander from your commands.n

11 I have treasured your word in my hearto

so that I may not sin against you.

12 Lord, may you be blessed;

teach me your statutes.p

13 With my lips I proclaim

all the judgments from your mouth.q

14 I rejoice in the way revealed by your decreesr

as much as in all riches.

15 I will meditate on your preceptss

and think about your ways.t

16 I will delight in your statutes;u

I will not forget your word.
