[Diocese of Mauritius - Indian Ocean] Psa 119:105 Your word is a lamp to guide me and a light for my path.
Psa 119:106 I will keep my solemn promise to obey your just instructions.
Psa 119:107 My sufferings, LORD, are terrible indeed; keep me alive, as you have promised.
Psa 119:108 Accept my prayer of thanks, O LORD, and teach me your commands.
Psa 119:109 I am always ready to risk my life; I have not forgotten your law.
Psa 119:110 The wicked lay a trap for me, but I have not disobeyed your commands.
Psa 119:111 Your commandments are my eternal possession; they are the joy of my heart.
Psa 119:112 I have decided to obey your laws until the day I die.
Psa 119:113 I hate those who are not completely loyal to you, but I love your law.
Psa 119:114 You are my defender and protector; I put my hope in your promise.
Psa 119:115 Go away from me, you sinful people. I will obey the commands of my God.
Psa 119:116 Give me strength, as you promised, and I shall live; don't let me be disappointed in my hope!
Psa 119:117 Hold me, and I will be safe, and I will always pay attention to your commands.
