Deal Generously with Your Servant

The prayer of Psalm 119.17-24 (Holman CSB):

Deal generously with Your servant so that I might live;
then I will keep Your word.
Open my eyes so that I may see wonderful things in Your law.
I am a stranger on earth;
do not hide Your commands from me.
I am continually overcome by longing for Your judgments.
You rebuke the proud, the accursed,
who wander from Your commands.
Take insult and contempt away from me,
for I have kept Your decrees.
Though princes sit together speaking against me,
Your servant will think about Your statutes;
Your decrees are my delight and my counselors.
