138 The statutes you have laid down are righteous;
they are fully trustworthy.
139 My zeal wears me out,
for my enemies ignore your words.
140 Your promises have been thoroughly tested,
and your servant loves them.
141 Though I am lowly and despised,
I do not forget your precepts.
142 Your righteousness is everlasting
and your law is true.
143 Trouble and distress have come upon me,
but your commands are my delight.
144 Your statutes are forever right;
give me understanding that I may live.
Our world has lost a sense of right. It searches for a value system that allows total freedom with no restriction of pleasure or intrusion into personal will. Their search is folly.
The answer to right is found in Ps 119:144: Your statues are forever right; give me understanding that I may live.
