Psalms 119:130-147

Psalm 119:129-136-145-152 The Message (MSG)

Every word you give me is a miracle word— how could I help but obey? Break open your words, let the light shine out, let ordinary people see the meaning. Mouth open and panting, I wanted your commands more than anything. Turn my way, look kindly on me, as you always do to those who personally love you. Steady my steps with your Word of promise so nothing malign gets the better of me. Rescue me from the grip of bad men and women so I can live life your way. Smile on me, your servant; teach me the right way to live. I cry rivers of tears because nobody’s living by your book! You are right and you do right, GOD; your decisions are right on target. You rightly instruct us in how to live ever faithful to you. My rivals nearly did me in, they persistently ignored your commandments. Your promise has been tested through and through, and I, your servant, love it dearly. I’m too young to be important, but I don’t forget what you tell me. Your righteousness is eternally right, your revelation is the only truth. Even though troubles came down on me hard, your commands always gave me delight. The way you tell me to live is always right; help me understand it so I can live to the fullest. I call out at the top of my lungs, “GOD! Answer! I’ll do whatever you say.” I called to you, “Save me so I can carry out all your instructions.” I was up before sunrise, crying for help, hoping for a word from you. I stayed awake all night, prayerfully pondering your promise. In your love, listen to me; in your justice, GOD, keep me alive. As those out to get me come closer and closer, they go farther and farther from the truth you reveal; But you’re the closest of all to me, GOD, and all your judgments true. I’ve known all along from the evidence of your words that you meant them to last forever.

Psalms 119:130-147 Amplified Bible (AMP)

The unfolding of Your [glorious] words give light; Their unfolding gives understanding to the simple (childlike). I opened my mouth and panted [with anticipation], Because I longed for Your commandments. Turn to me and be gracious to me and show me favor, As is Your way to those who love Your name. Establish my footsteps in [the way of] Your word; Do not let any human weakness have power over me [causing me to be separated from You]. Redeem me from the oppression of man; That I may keep Your precepts. Make Your face shine [with pleasure] upon Your servant, And teach me Your statutes. My eyes weep streams of water Because people do not keep Your law. Righteous are You, O LORD, And upright are Your judgments. You have commanded Your testimonies in righteousness And in great faithfulness. My zeal has [completely] consumed me, Because my enemies have forgotten Your words. Your word is very pure (refined); Therefore Your servant loves it. I am small and despised, But I do not forget Your precepts. Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, And Your law is truth. Trouble and anguish have found me, Yet Your commandments are my delight and my joy. Your righteous testimonies are everlasting; Give me understanding [the ability to learn and a teachable heart] that I may live. I cried with all my heart; answer me, O LORD! I will observe Your statutes. I cried to You; save me And I will keep Your testimonies. I rise before dawn and cry [in prayer] for help; I wait for Your word.

Psalms 119:130-147 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Break open your word within me until revelation-light shines out! Those with open hearts are given insight into your plans. I open my mouth and inhale the word of God because I crave the revelation of your commands. Turn your heart to me, Lord, and show me your grace like you do to every one of your godly lovers. Prepare before me a path filled with your promises, and don’t allow even one sin to have dominion over me. Rescue me from the oppression of ungodly men so that I can keep all your precepts. Smile on me, your loving servant. Instruct me on what is right in your eyes. When I witness the rebellious breaking your laws, it makes me weep uncontrollably! Lord, your judgments reveal your righteousness, and your verdicts are always fair. The motive behind your every word is pure, and your teachings are remarkably faithful and true. I’ve been consumed with a furious passion to do what’s right, all because of the way my enemies disrespect your laws. All your promises glow with fire; that’s why I’m a lover of your word. Even though I’m considered insignificant and despised by the world, I’ll never abandon your ways. Your righteousness has no end; it is everlasting, and your rules are perfectly fair. Even though my troubles overwhelm me with anguish, I still delight and cherish every message you speak to me. Give me more revelation so that I can live for you, for nothing is more pure and eternal than your truth. Answer my passionate prayer, O Lord, and I’ll obey everything you say. Save me, God, and I’ll follow your every instruction. Before the day dawns, I’ll be crying out for help and wrapping your words into my life.
