137You are righteous, O Lord, and your judgments are right.

138You have appointed your decrees in righteousness and in all faithfulness.

139My zeal consumes me because my foes forget your words.

140Your promise is well tried, and your servant loves it.

141I am small and despised, yet I do not forget your precepts.

142Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and your law is the truth.

143Trouble and anguish have come upon me, but your commandments are my delight.

144Your decrees are righteous forever; give me understanding that I may live.
