|Turn my heart toward your statutes |
and not toward selfish gain.
Turn my eyes away from worthless things;
preserve my life according to your word.
|Incline my heart unto thy testimonies, and not to covetousness. Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity; and quicken thou me in thy way.|
|Incline my heart to Your testimonies |
And not to dishonest gain.
Turn away my eyes from looking at vanity,
And revive me in Your ways.
|Psalm 119:36-37 |
If you want real values, get them from the Word of God (v. 37). How tragic that so many people waste time, energy, and money on things that amount to little or nothing (Isa. 55:2).

Well known as the longest chapter in the Bible (Psalm 119), this psalm is one of the acrostics. However, unlike the other acrostics, which contain only one verse for each of the 22 Hebrew letters, Psalm 119 includes eight verses for each letter, making a total of 176 verses!
