|802||GUIDANCE||Psalms 119, 25, Isaiah 30, Psalm 32, and John 16, RSV|
Blessed are those whose way is blameless,|
who walk in the law of the Lord!
Blessed are those who keep his testimonies,
who seek him with their whole heart.
Put false ways far from me;
and graciously teach me thy law!
I have chosen the way of faithfulness,
I set thy ordinances before me.
Lead me in the path of thy commandments,
for I delight in it....
Turn my eyes from looking at vanities;
and give me life in thy ways.
Thy word is a lamp to my feet
and a light to my path.
Good and upright is the Lord;
therefore he instructs sinners in the way.
He leads the humble in what is right,
and teaches the humble his way.
All the paths of the Lord are
steadfast love and faithfulness,
for those who keep his covenant and
Your ears shall hear a word behind you,
saying, "This is the way, walk in it,"
when you turn to the right or when
you turn to the left.
I will instruct you and teach you the
way you should go;
I will counsel you with my eye upon you.
"When the Spirit of truth comes,
he will guide you into all the truth;
for he will not speak on his own authority,
but whatever he hears he will speak,
and he will declare to you
the things that are to come."
