119:12Blessed art thou, O LORD: teach me thy statutes.

119:13With my lips have I declared all the judgments of thy mouth.

119:18Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.

119:19I am a stranger in the earth: hide not thy commandments from me.

119:20My soul breaketh for the longing that it hath unto thy judgments at all times.

119:21Thou hast rebuked the proud that are cursed, which do err from thy commandments.

119:22Remove from me reproach and contempt; for I have kept thy testimonies.

119:28My soul melteth for heaviness: strengthen thou me according unto thy word.

119:29Remove from me the way of lying: and grant me thy law graciously.

119:30I have chosen the way of truth: thy judgments have I laid before me.

119:31I have stuck unto thy testimonies: O LORD, put me not to shame.

119:32I will run the way of thy commandments, when thou shalt enlarge my heart.

119:44So shall I keep thy law continually for ever and ever.

119:45And I will walk at liberty: for I seek thy precepts.

119:46I will speak of thy testimonies also before kings, and will not be ashamed.

119:47And I will delight myself in thy commandments, which I have loved.

119:48My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments, which I have loved; and I will meditate in thy statutes.

ZAIN.

119:49Remember the word unto thy servant, upon which thou hast caused me to hope.

119:50This is my comfort in my affliction: for thy word hath quickened me.

119:51The proud have had me greatly in derision: yet have I not declined from thy law.

119:52I remembered thy judgments of old, O LORD; and have comforted myself.

119:53Horror hath taken hold upon me because of the wicked that forsake thy law.

119:54Thy statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimage.

119:55I have remembered thy name, O LORD, in the night, and have kept thy law.

119:56This I had, because I kept thy precepts.

CHETH.

119:57Thou art my portion, O LORD: I have said that I would keep thy words.

119:58I intreated thy favour with my whole heart: be merciful unto me according to thy word.

119:59I thought on my ways, and turned my feet unto thy testimonies.

119:60I made haste, and delayed not to keep thy commandments.

119:61The bands of the wicked have robbed me: but I have not forgotten thy law.

119:62At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto thee because of thy righteous judgments.

119:63I am a companion of all them that fear thee, and of them that keep thy precepts.

119:64The earth, O LORD, is full of thy mercy: teach me thy statutes.

119:65Thou hast dealt well with thy servant, O LORD, according unto thy word.

119:66Teach me good judgment and knowledge: for I have believed thy commandments.

119:67Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word.

119:68Thou art good, and doest good; teach me thy statutes.

119:69The proud have forged a lie against me: but I will keep thy precepts with my whole heart.

119:70Their heart is as fat as grease; but I delight in thy law.

119:71It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn thy statutes.

119:72The law of thy mouth is better unto me than thousands of gold and silver.

JOD.

119:73Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding, that I may learn thy commandments.

119:74They that fear thee will be glad when they see me; because I have hoped in thy word.

119:75I know, O LORD, that thy judgments are right, and that thou in faithfulness hast afflicted me.

119:76Let, I pray thee, thy merciful kindness be for my comfort, according to thy word unto thy servant.

119:77Let thy tender mercies come unto me, that I may live: for thy law is my delight.

119:78Let the proud be ashamed; for they dealt perversely with me without a cause: but I will meditate in thy precepts.

119:79Let those that fear thee turn unto me, and those that have known thy testimonies.

119:80Let my heart be sound in thy statutes; that I be not ashamed.

CAPH.

119:81My soul fainteth for thy salvation: but I hope in thy word.

119:82Mine eyes fail for thy word, saying, When wilt thou comfort me?

119:83For I am become like a bottle in the smoke; yet do I not forget thy statutes.

119:84How many are the days of thy servant? when wilt thou execute judgment on them that persecute me?

119:85The proud have digged pits for me, which are not after thy law.

119:86All thy commandments are faithful: they persecute me wrongfully; help thou me.

119:87They had almost consumed me upon earth; but I forsook not thy precepts.

119:88Quicken me after thy lovingkindness; so shall I keep the testimony of thy mouth.

LAMED.

119:89For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.

119:90Thy faithfulness is unto all generations: thou hast established the earth, and it abideth.

119:91They continue this day according to thine ordinances: for all are thy servants.

119:92Unless thy law had been my delights, I should then have perished in mine affliction.

119:93I will never forget thy precepts: for with them thou hast quickened me.

119:94I am thine, save me; for I have sought thy precepts.

119:95The wicked have waited for me to destroy me: but I will consider thy testimonies.

119:96I have seen an end of all perfection: but thy commandment is exceeding broad.

119:106I have sworn, and I will perform it, that I will keep thy righteous judgments.

119:107I am afflicted very much: quicken me, O LORD, according unto thy word.

119:108Accept, I beseech thee, the freewill offerings of my mouth, O LORD, and teach me thy judgments.

119:109My soul is continually in my hand: yet do I not forget thy law.

119:110The wicked have laid a snare for me: yet I erred not from thy precepts.

119:115Depart from me, ye evildoers: for I will keep the commandments of my God.

119:116Uphold me according unto thy word, that I may live: and let me not be ashamed of my hope.

119:117Hold thou me up, and I shall be safe: and I will have respect unto thy statutes continually.

119:118Thou hast trodden down all them that err from thy statutes: for their deceit is falsehood.

119:119Thou puttest away all the wicked of the earth like dross: therefore I love thy testimonies.

119:120My flesh trembleth for fear of thee; and I am afraid of thy judgments.

AIN.

119:121I have done judgment and justice: leave me not to mine oppressors.

119:122Be surety for thy servant for good: let not the proud oppress me.

119:123Mine eyes fail for thy salvation, and for the word of thy righteousness.

119:124Deal with thy servant according unto thy mercy, and teach me thy statutes.

119:125I am thy servant; give me understanding, that I may know thy testimonies.

119:126It is time for thee, LORD, to work: for they have made void thy law.

119:127Therefore I love thy commandments above gold; yea, above fine gold.

119:128Therefore I esteem all thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way.

PE.

119:129Thy testimonies are wonderful: therefore doth my soul keep them.

119:130The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.

119:131I opened my mouth, and panted: for I longed for thy commandments.

119:132Look thou upon me, and be merciful unto me, as thou usest to do unto those that love thy name.

119:133Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.

119:134Deliver me from the oppression of man: so will I keep thy precepts.

119:135Make thy face to shine upon thy servant; and teach me thy statutes.

119:136Rivers of waters run down mine eyes, because they keep not thy law.

TZADDI.

119:137Righteous art thou, O LORD, and upright are thy judgments.

119:138Thy testimonies that thou hast commanded are righteous and very faithful.

119:139My zeal hath consumed me, because mine enemies have forgotten thy words.

119:140Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it.

119:141I am small and despised: yet do not I forget thy precepts.

119:142Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law is the truth.

119:148Mine eyes prevent the night watches, that I might meditate in thy word.

119:149Hear my voice according unto thy lovingkindness: O LORD, quicken me according to thy judgment.
