Read Psalm 119:1-8
Happy are those whose lives are faultless,
who live according to the law of the Lord.
2Happy are those who follow his commands,
who obey him with all their heart.
3They never do wrong;
they walk in the Lord’s ways.
4Lord, you have given us your laws
and told us to obey them faithfully.
5How I hope that I shall be faithful
in keeping your instructions!
6If I pay attention to all your commands,
then I will not be put to shame.
7As I learn your righteous judgements,
I will praise you with a pure heart.
8I will obey your laws;
never abandon me!
The Psalmist reflects on how happy he would be if only he would keep all of the laws of the Lord.
Lord I want to live according to your values; don't leave me until I learn how.
