Psalm 119

Your Word Is a Lamp to My Feet


1 Blessed are the 1 undefiled in the way,
a Who walk in the law of the LORD!
2 Blessed are those who keep His testimonies,
Who seek Him with the b whole heart!
3 c They also do no iniquity;
They walk in His ways.
4 You have commanded us
To keep Your precepts diligently.

To keep Your statutes!
6 d Then I would not be ashamed,
When I look into all Your commandments.
7 I will praise You with uprightness of heart,
When I learn Your righteous judgments.
8 I will keep Your statutes;
Oh, do not forsake me utterly!

9 How can a young man cleanse his way?
By taking heed according to Your word.
