Meditations and Prayers Relating to the Law of God.
81 My soul languishes and grows weak for Your salvation; I wait for Your word.
82 My eyes fail [with longing, watching] for [the fulfillment of] Your promise,
Saying, “When will You comfort me?”
83 For I have become like a wineskin [blackened and shriveled] in the smoke [in which it hangs], yet I do not forget Your statutes.
84 How many are the days of Your servant [which he must endure]?When will You execute judgment on those who persecute me?
85 The arrogant (godless) have dug pits for me, men who do not conform to Your law.
86 All Your commandments are faithful and trustworthy. They have persecuted me with a lie; help me [Lord]!
87 They had almost destroyed me on earth, but as for me, I did not turn away from Your precepts.
88 According to Your steadfast love refresh me and give me life, so that I may keep and obey the testimony of Your mouth.
89 Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven [standing firm and unchangeable].
90 Your faithfulness continues from generation to generation; You have established the earth, and it stands [securely].
91 They continue this day according to Your ordinances, for all things [all parts of the universe] are Your servants.
92 If Your law had not been my delight, then I would have perished in my time of trouble.
93 I will never forget Your precepts, for by them You have revived me and given me life.
94 I am Yours, save me [as Your own]; For I have [diligently] sought Your precepts and required them [as my greatest need].
95 The wicked wait for me to destroy me, but I will consider Your testimonies.
96 I have seen that all [human] perfection has its limits [no matter how grand and perfect and noble]; Your commandment is exceedingly broad and extends without limits [into eternity].Psalm 119:81-96 (AMP)
