October 28: Psalm 119

Songs for today: Sitting at the Feet of Jesus / When I Look Into Your Holiness

Today’s Country: Independent State of Papua New Guinea

Oh, that my ways were directed
To keep Your statutes!
Then I would not be ashamed,
When I look into all Your commandments.
I will praise You with uprightness of heart,
When I learn Your righteous judgments.
•••
Your word I have hidden in my heart,
That I might not sin against You.
Blessed are You, O Lord!
Teach me Your statutes.
•••
Open my eyes, that I may see
Wondrous things from Your law.
•••
Turn away my eyes from looking at worthless things,
And revive me in Your way.
•••
I will speak of Your testimonies also before kings,
And will not be ashamed.
And I will delight myself in Your commandments,
Which I love.
•••
It is good for me that I have been afflicted,
That I may learn Your statutes.
•••
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.
•••
Accept, I pray, the freewill offerings of my mouth, O Lord,
And teach me Your judgments.
•••
You are my hiding place and my shield;
I hope in Your word.
•••
Your testimonies are wonderful;
Therefore my soul keeps them.
The entrance of Your words gives light;
It gives understanding to the simple.
•••
Rivers of water run down from my eyes,
Because men do not keep Your law.
•••
I rise before the dawning of the morning,
And cry for help;
I hope in Your word.
My eyes are awake through the night watches,
That I may meditate on Your word.
from Psalm 119
