Remember the word to Your servant, upon which You have caused me to hope.
50 This is my comfort in my affliction, for Your word has given me life.
51 The proud have me in great derision, yet I do not turn aside from Your law.
52 I remembered Your judgments of old, O Lord, and have comforted myself.
53 Indignation has taken hold of me because of the wicked, who forsake Your law.
54 Your statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimage.
55 I remember Your name in the night, O Lord, and I keep Your law.
56 This has become mine, because I kept Your precepts.
57 You are my portion, O Lord; I have said that I would keep Your words.
58 I entreated Your favour with my whole heart; be merciful to me according to Your word.
59 I thought about my ways, and turned my feet to Your testimonies.
60 I made haste, and did not delay to keep Your commandments.
61 The cords of the wicked have bound me, but I have not forgotten Your law.
62 At midnight I will rise to give thanks to You, because of Your righteous judgments.
63 I am a companion of all who fear You, and of those who keep Your precepts.
64 The earth, O Lord, is full of Your mercy; teach me Your statutes.
