A passage from Psalm 119

What an awesome, amazing, extraordinary passage! May we all live by this….

Psalm 119:41 May your grace come to me, ADONAI, your salvation, as you promised; 42 then I will have an answer for those who taunt me; for I trust in your word. 43 Don't take away completely my power to speak the truth; for I put my hope in your rulings; 44 and I will keep your Torah always, forever and ever.

45 I will go wherever I like, for I have sought your precepts. 46 I will speak of your instructions even to kings without being ashamed. 47 I will delight myself in your mitzvot, which I have loved. 48 I will lift my hands to your mitzvot, which I love; and I will meditate on your laws.

49 Remember your promise to your servant, through which you have given me hope. 50 In my distress my comfort is this: that your promise gives me life. 51 Though the arrogant scorn me completely, I have not turned away from your Torah.

52 ADONAI, I keep in mind your age-old rulings; in them I take comfort. 53 Fury seizes me when I think of the wicked, because they abandon your Torah. (CJB)
