Psalm 119:72-89 and Proverbs 30:5-9
72 The law of your mouth is good for me, beyond thousands of gold and silver pieces.
73 IOD. Your hands have created me and formed me. Give me understanding, and I will learn your commandments.
74 Those who fear you will see me, and they will rejoice. For I have greatly hoped in your words.
75 I know, O Lord, that your judgments are fairness. And in your truth, you have humbled me.
76 Let it be your mercy that consoles me, according to your eloquence to your servant.
77 Let your compassion draw near to me, and I will live. For your law is my meditation.
78 Let the arrogant be confounded, for unjustly they have done iniquity to me. But I will be trained in your commandments.
79 Let those who fear you turn to me, along with those who know your testimonies.
80 Let my heart be immaculate in your justifications, so that I may not be confounded.
81 CAPH. My soul has faltered in your salvation, yet in your word, I have hoped beyond hope.
82 My eyes have failed in your eloquence, saying, "When will you console me?"
83 For I have become like a wineskin in the frost. I have not forgotten your justifications.
84 How many are the days of your servant? When will you bring judgment against those who persecute me?
85 The iniquitous have spoken fables to me. But these are unlike your law.
86 All your commandments are truth. They have been persecuting me unjustly: assist me.
87 They have nearly consumed me on earth. Yet I have not forsaken your commandments.
88 Revive me according to your mercy. And I will keep the testimonies of your mouth.
89 LAMED. O Lord, your word remains firm in heaven, for all eternity.
5 Every word of God is fire-tested. He is a bronze shield to those who hope in him.
6 Do not add anything to his words, lest you be reproved and be discovered to be a liar.
7 Two things I have asked of you; do not deny them to me before I die.
8 Remove, far from me, vanity and lying words. Give me neither begging, nor wealth. Apportion to me only the necessities of my life,
9 lest perhaps, being filled, I might be enticed into denial, and say: 'Who is the Lord?' Or, being compelled by destitution, I might steal, and then perjure myself in the name of my God.
