Daily Light #76 ~ God’s Word Is Treasure

Psalm 119:162-163, 165-174

I rejoice in your word

like one who discovers a great treasure.

I hate and abhor all falsehood,

but I love your instructions.

~

Those who love your instructions have great peace

and do not stumble.

I long for your rescue, LORD,

so I have obeyed your commands.

I have obeyed your laws,

for I love them very much.

Yes, I obey your commandments and laws

because you know everything I do.

Taw

O LORD, listen to my cry;

give me the discerning mind you promised.

Listen to my prayer;

rescue me as you promised.

Let praise flow from my lips,

for you have taught me your decrees.

Let my tongue sing about your word,

for all your commands are right.

Give me a helping hand,

for I have chosen to follow your commandments.

O LORD, I have longed for your rescue,

and your instructions are my delight.

This psalm is a Hebrew acrostic poem; there are twenty-two stanzas, one for each successive letter of the Hebrew alphabet. Each of the eight verses within each stanza begins with the Hebrew letter named in its heading.

Daily Light #68 ~ My Only Hope

Psalm 119:49-50, 57-60, 63-64 New Living Translation

Remember your promise to me;

it is my only hope.

Your promise revives me;

it comforts me in all my troubles.

LORD, you are mine!

I promise to obey your words!

With all my heart I want your blessings.

Be merciful as you promised.

I pondered the direction of my life,

and I turned to follow your laws.

I will hurry, without delay,

to obey your commands.

I am a friend to anyone who fears you—

anyone who obeys your commandments.

O LORD, your unfailing love fills the earth;

teach me your decrees.
