Psalm 119:161-168

161 Though princes oppress me without cause,

 my heart reveres your word.

 162 I rejoice at your promise,

 like one who finds a great treasure.

163 Falsehood I hate and detest,

 but I love your law.

 164 Seven times a day I praise you

 for your just decrees.

165 The lovers of your law have great peace;

 no stumbling block for them.

 166 I await your salvation, O LORD;

 I fulfill your commands.

167 My soul obeys your decrees,

 and loves them dearly.

 168 I obey your precepts and decrees;

 all my ways are before you.v
