Psalm 119:49-72
49 Remember your word to your servant,
because you have given me hope.

50 This is my comfort in my trouble,
that your promise gives me life.

51 The proud have derided me cruelly,
but I have not turned from your law.

52 When I remember your judgments of old,
O Lord, I take great comfort.

53 I am filled with a burning rage,
because of the wicked who forsake your law.

54 Your statutes have been like songs to me
wherever I have lived as a stranger.

55 I remember your Name in the night, O Lord,
and dwell upon your law.

56 This is how it has been with me,
because I have kept your commandments.

57 You only are my portion, O Lord;
I have promised to keep your words.

58 I entreat you with all my heart,
be merciful to me according to your promise.

59 I have considered my ways
and turned my feet toward your decrees.

60 I hasten and do not tarry
to keep your commandments.

61 Though the cords of the wicked entangle me,
I do not forget your law.

62 At midnight I will rise to give you thanks,
because of your righteous judgments.

63 I am a companion of all who fear you;
and of those who keep your commandments.

64 The earth, O Lord, is full of your love;
instruct me in your statutes.

65 O Lord, you have dealt graciously with your servant,
according to your word.

66 Teach me discernment and knowledge,
for I have believed in your commandments.

67 Before I was afflicted I went astray,
but now I keep your word.

68 You are good and you bring forth good;
instruct me in your statutes.

69 The proud have smeared me with lies,
but I will keep your commandments with my whole heart.

70 Their heart is gross and fat,
but my delight is in your law.

71 It is good for me that I have been afflicted,
that I might learn your statutes.

72 The law of your mouth is dearer to me
than thousands in gold and silver.

Collect of the Day: Pentecost, Proper 11
Almighty God, the fountain of all wisdom, you know our necessities before we ask and our ignorance in asking: Have compassion on our weakness, and mercifully give us those things which for our unworthiness we dare not, and for our blindness we cannot ask; through the worthiness of your Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
