Psalm 119: 114, 116-117; 123-128, New Living Translation
You are my refuge and my shield;
your word is my source of hope.
LORD, sustain me as you promised, that I may live!
Do not let my hope be crushed.
Sustain me, and I will be rescued;
then I will meditate continually on your decrees.
My eyes strain to see your rescue,
to see the truth of your promise fulfilled.
I am your servant; deal with me in unfailing love,
and teach me your decrees.
Give discernment to me, your servant;
then I will understand your laws.
LORD, it is time for you to act,
for these evil people have violated your instructions.
Truly, I love your commands
more than gold, even the finest gold.
Each of your commandments is right.
That is why I hate every false way.
“The LORD demands accurate scales and balances; he sets the standards for fairness.”
Proverbs 16:11, NLT
