One hundred seventy-six verses are not enough to explain how the good people are so good and the bad people are so bad. I delight in Your commandments and how well I observe them. Others don’t. I love Your laws and am faithful. Others are not. I do what is right yet watch evildoers prosper. May mercy come to me and shame to the godless. As a sojourner, I long for clarity of black and white. I want my sorrow to melt into surrender. Something in me has gone astray like a lost sheep. I find no shepherd. I see greener pastures elsewhere. Have my judge’s robes fallen over my eyes like blinders?

I give You my heart. I have hope in You
Your word is a lamp to my feet
and a light to my path.
