Give attention to my misery and rescue me
    because I have not forgotten Your teaching.
154 Fight for me, and set me free;
    give me life in keeping with Your promise.
155 Salvation is far from the wicked
    because they do not live in pursuit of Your precepts.
156 Your mercies are tender and great, O Eternal One;
    grant me life in keeping with Your ordinances.
157 I have many oppressors and foes;
    still I do not swerve from Your decrees.
158 I observe the faithless and detest them
    because they turn away from Your word.
159 Reflect, O God, on how I love Your precepts;
    give me life, O Eternal One, in keeping with Your unfailing love.
160 The entirety of Your word is truth,
    and every one of Your right rulings will surely last forever.


161 Princes persecute me without reason,
    but my heart remains true and is awed by Your words.
162 I celebrate because of Your promise,
    like someone who discovers great treasure.
163 I despise and abhor lies,
    but I love Your law.
164 Seven times every day I praise You
    because of Your right rulings.
165 Those who love Your law have an abundance of peace,
    and nothing along their paths can cause them to stumble.
166 I wait for Your salvation, O Eternal One,
    and I live out Your commands.
167 My soul is faithful to Your decrees,
    and my love for them is extraordinary.
168 I live according to Your precepts and decrees
    because everything I do is right before Your eyes.


169 Let my cry come before You, O Eternal One.
    Grant me understanding in keeping with Your word.
170 Let my plea come before You;
    liberate me in keeping with Your word.
171 Praise will pour from my lips
    because You help me learn what You require.
172 My tongue will sing of Your word
    because every command of Yours is right.
173 Let Your hand be poised to help me
    because I have chosen to live by Your precepts.
174 I long for Your salvation, O Eternal One.
    Meanwhile, Your teaching brings me great joy.
175 Let my soul live on so that I may praise You,
    and let Your precepts guide me.
176 I have wandered down the wrong path like a lost sheep; come find me, Your servant,
    because I do not forget Your commands.
