But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law does he meditate day and night.
Make me to go in the path of your commandments; for therein do I delight.
This book of the law shall not depart out of your mouth; but you shall meditate therein day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall have good success.
Unless your law had been my delights, I should then have perished in my affliction.
Praise you the LORD. Blessed is the man that fears the LORD, that delights greatly in his commandments.
For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not burdensome.
Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips; I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food.
[Aleph] Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD.
I will meditate in your precepts, and have respect unto your ways.
And I will delight myself in your commandments, which I have loved.
[Mem] O how love I your law! it is my meditation all the day.
Your words were found, and I did eat them; and your word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of my heart: for I am called by your name, O LORD God of hosts.
Meditate upon these things; give yourself wholly to them; that your progress may appear to all.
The law of your mouth is better unto me than thousands of gold and silver pieces.
[A Song or Psalm for the Sons of Karah. To the Chief Musician upon mahanath leannoth. A maschil of Heman the Ezrahite.] O LORD God of my salvation, I have cried day and night before you:
And shall not God avenge his own elect, who cry day and night unto him, though he bears long with them?
I thank God, whom I serve from my forefathers with pure conscience, that without ceasing I have remembrance of you in my prayers night and day;
And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years, who departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day.
For you remember, brethren, our labor and travail: for laboring night and day, because we would not be a burden unto any of you, we preached unto you the gospel of God.
