Clarke's Commentary on Psalms 119 :80

Let my heart be sound in thy statutes - Let it be perfect - all given up to thee, and all possessed by thee.

Barnes' Commentary on Psalms 119 :80

Let my heart be sound ... - Hebrew, "Be perfect." See the notes at Job 1:1. The Septuagint here is "immaculate," ἄμωμος amōmos. So the Latin Vulgate. It is the expression of a desire that the heart might be pure; that there might be no improper attachment for other objects; that there might be no defect of love to God.

That I be not ashamed - See the notes at Psalm 119:6. A man has no occasion to be ashamed of a pure heart; and that which can alone keep us from being ultimately ashamed is sincerity, uprightness, and purity in the service of God.

Wesley's Commentary on Psalms 119 :80

119:80 Sound - That I may love and obey them sincerely, constantly, and universally.
