Psalm 119:1-24
1 Happy are they whose way is blameless,

who walk in the law of the Lord!

2 Happy are they who observe his decrees
and seek him with all their hearts!

3 Who never do any wrong,
but always walk in his ways.

4 You laid down your commandments,
that we should fully keep them.

5 Oh, that my ways were made so direct
that I might keep your statutes!

6 Then I should not be put to shame,
when I regard all your commandments.

7 I will thank you with an unfeigned heart,
when I have learned your righteous judgments.

8 I will keep your statutes;
do not utterly forsake me.

9 How shall a young man cleanse his way?
By keeping to your words.

10 With my whole heart I seek you;
let me not stray from your commandments.

11 I treasure your promise in my heart,
that I may not sin against you.

12 Blessed are you, O Lord;
instruct me in your statutes.

13 With my lips will I recite
all the judgments of your mouth.

14 I have taken greater delight in the way of your decrees
than in all manner of riches.

15 I will meditate on your commandments
and give attention to your ways.

16 My delight is in your statutes;
I will not forget your word.

17 Deal bountifully with your servant,
that I may live and keep your word.

18 Open my eyes, that I may see
the wonders of your law.

19 I am a stranger here on earth;
do not hide your commandments from me.

20 My soul is consumed at all times
with longing for your judgments.

21 You have rebuked the insolent;
cursed are they who stray from your commandments!

22 Turn from me shame and rebuke,
for I have kept your decrees.

23 Even though rulers sit and plot against me,
I will meditate on your statutes.

24 For your decrees are my delight,
and they are my counselors.

Collect of the Day: Pentecost, Proper 9
O God, you have taught us to keep all your commandments by loving you and our neighbor: Grant us the grace of your Holy Spirit, that we may be devoted to you with our whole heart, and united to one another with pure affection; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
