Psalm 119

I was going through the Psalms and saw this: 
Psalm 119 1-16

Happy are those whose lives are fautless,
  who live according to the law of the Lord.

Happy are those who follow His commands,
 who obey Him with all their heart.

They never do wrong;
  they walk in the Lord's ways

Lord you have given us your laws
  and told us to obey them faithfully.

How I hope that I shall be faithful
  in keeping your instructions!

If pay attention to all your commands,
  then I will not be put to shame.

As I learn your righteous judgements,
  I will praise you with a pure heart.

I will obey your laws;
 never abandon me!

How can a young man keep his life pure?
 By obeying your commands.

With all my heart I try to serve you;
  keep me from disobeying your commandments

I keep your law in my heart
  so that I will not sin against you.

I praise you O Lord,  
  teach me your ways

I will repeat aloud 
  all the laws you have given.

I delight in following your commands
  more than in having great wealth.

I study your instructions;
  I examine your teaching 

I take pleasure in your laws; 
  your commands I will not forget.

May the Lord be with us.
