Psalm 119:65-72 Thursday Midday 2
Do good to your servant, Yahweh, * according to your word.
Teach me good judgment and knowledge, * because I believe in your commandments.
Before I had answered I went astray, * but now I keep your word.
You are good and the cause of good; * teach me your statutes.
The presumptuous besmear me with lies, * but I with all my heart observe your precepts.
Gross as lard is their heart, * but I take delight in your law.
It was good for me to have suffered, * that I might learn your statutes.
More precious to me is the law from your mouth * than thousands of gold and silver coins.
