26 Psalms 119
1Blessed are those undefiled in the way who walk in the law of Yahvah.
2Blessed are those who keep his testimonies, and seek him with a whole heart.
3They do no iniquity; they walk in his ways.
4You have commanded them to keep your precepts diligently.
5That my ways were directed to keep your statutes.
6Then I will not be ashamed when I have observed all your commandments.
7I will praise you with uprightness of heart when I will have learned your righteous judgments.
8I will keep your statutes; do not utterly forsake me.
With what will a young man cleanse his way in order that he may observe your commandments?
With my whole heart I have sought you; do not let me wander from your commandments.

Blessed are you Yahvah
; teach me your statutes.

I have been delighted in the way of your testimonies more than in all riches.
I have meditated in your commandments, and am familiar with your ways.

Answer your servant that I may live and keep your words.
Open my eyes that I may see wondrous things out of your law.
I am a temporary resident with you; do not hide your commandments from me.
My soul is pleased and desires your judgments at all times

, and cursed are those who go astray from your commandments.

Turn my eyes away that they may not see falsehood, and quicken me in your way.
Strengthen your word to your servant who is devoted to you.
Turn away my disgrace because your judgments are good.
Look I have delighted in your precepts; quicken me in your righteousness.
