Psalms 119

119:1 ALEPH. Blessed [are] the undefiled in the way, who walk in
 the law of the LORD.
119:2 Blessed [are] they that keep his testimonies, [and that]
 seek him with the whole heart.
119:3 They also do no iniquity: they walk in his ways.
119:4 Thou hast commanded [us] to keep thy precepts diligently.
119:5 O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!
119:6 Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect to all
 thy commandments.
119:7 I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall
 have learned thy righteous judgments.
119:8 I will keep thy statutes: O forsake me not utterly.
119:9 BETH. Wherewith shall a young man cleanse his way? by
 taking heed [to it], according to thy word.
119:10 With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not
 wander from thy commandments.
119:11 Thy word have I hid in my heart, that I might not sin
 against thee.
119:12 Blessed [art] thou, O LORD: teach me thy statutes.
119:13 With my lips have I declared all the judgments of thy
119:14 I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies, as [much
 as] in all riches.
119:15 I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect to thy
119:16 I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget
 thy word.
119:17 GIMEL. Deal bountifully with thy servant, [that] I may
 live, and keep thy word.
119:18 Open thou my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out
 of thy law.
119:19 I [am] a stranger in the earth: hide not thy commandments
 from me.
119:20 My soul breaketh for the longing [that it hath] to thy
 judgments at all times.
119:21 Thou hast rebuked the proud [that are] cursed, who do err
 from thy commandments.
119:22 Remove from me reproach and contempt; for I have kept thy
119:23 Princes also did sit [and] speak against me: [but] thy
 servant did meditate in thy statutes.
119:24 Thy testimonies also [are] my delight, [and] my
119:25 DALETH. My soul cleaveth to the dust: revive thou me
 according to thy word.
119:26 I have declared my ways, and thou heardest me: teach me
 thy statutes.
119:27 Make me to understand the way of thy precepts: so shall I
 talk of thy wondrous works.
119:28 My soul melteth for heaviness: strengthen thou me
 according to thy word.
119:29 Remove from me the way of lying: and grant me thy law
119:30 I have chosen the way of truth: thy judgments have I laid
 [before me].
119:31 I have adhered to thy testimonies: O LORD, put me not to
119:32 I will run the way of thy commandments, when thou shalt
 enlarge my heart.
119:33 HE. Teach me, O LORD, the way of thy statutes; and I
 shall keep it [to] the end.
119:34 Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law; yes, I
 shall observe it with [my] whole heart.
119:35 Make me to go in the path of thy commandments; for in
 that do I delight.
119:36 Incline my heart to thy testimonies, and not to
119:37 Turn away my eyes from beholding vanity; [and] revive
 thou me in thy way.
119:38 Establish thy word to thy servant, who [is devoted] to
 thy fear.
119:39 Turn away my reproach which I fear: for thy judgments
 [are] good.
119:40 Behold, I have longed after thy precepts: revive me in
 thy righteousness.
119:41 VAU. Let thy mercies come also to me, O LORD, [even] thy
 salvation, according to thy word.
119:42 So shall I have with which to answer him that reproacheth
 me: for I trust in thy word.
119:43 And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth;
 for I have hoped in thy judgments.
119:44 So shall I keep thy law continually for ever and ever.
119:45 And I will walk at liberty: for I seek thy precepts.
119:46 I will speak of thy testimonies also before kings, and
 will not be ashamed.
119:47 And I will delight myself in thy commandments, which I
 have loved.
119:48 My hands also will I lift to thy commandments, which I
 have loved; and I will meditate in thy statutes.
119:49 ZAIN. Remember the word to thy servant, upon which thou
 hast caused me to hope.
119:50 This [is] my comfort in my affliction: for thy word hath
 revived me.
119:51 The proud have had me greatly in derision: [yet] I have
 not declined from thy law.
119:52 I remembered thy judgments of old, O LORD; and have
 comforted myself.
119:53 Horror hath taken hold upon me because of the wicked that
 forsake thy law.
119:54 Thy statutes have been my songs in the house of my
119:55 I have remembered thy name, O LORD, in the night, and
 have kept thy law.
119:56 This I had, because I kept thy precepts.
119:57 CHETH. [Thou art] my portion, O LORD: I have said that I
 would keep thy words.
119:58 I entreated thy favor with [my] whole heart: be merciful
 to me according to thy word.
119:59 I thought on my ways, and turned my feet to thy
119:60 I made haste, and delayed not to keep thy commandments.
119:61 The bands of the wicked have robbed me: [but] I have not
 forgotten thy law.
119:62 At midnight I will rise to give thanks to thee, because
 of thy righteous judgments.
119:63 I [am] a companion of all [them] that fear thee, and of
 them that keep thy precepts.
119:64 The earth, O LORD, is full of thy mercy: teach me thy
119:65 TETH. Thou hast dealt well with thy servant, O LORD,
 according to thy word.
119:66 Teach me good judgment and knowledge: for I have believed
 thy commandments.
119:67 Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept
 thy word.
119:68 Thou [art] good, and doest good; teach me thy statutes.
119:69 The proud have forged a lie against me: [but] I will keep
 thy precepts with [my] whole heart.
119:70 Their heart is as gross as fat; [but] I delight in thy
119:71 [It is] good for me that I have been afflicted; that I
 might learn thy statutes.
119:72 The law of thy mouth [is] better to me than thousands of
 gold and silver.
119:73 JOD. Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me
 understanding, that I may learn thy commandments.
119:74 They that fear thee will be glad when they see me;
 because I have hoped in thy word.
119:75 I know, O LORD, that thy judgments [are] right, and
 [that] thou in faithfulness hast afflicted me.
119:76 Let, I pray thee, thy merciful kindness be for my
 comfort, according to thy word to thy servant.
119:77 Let thy tender mercies come to me, that I may live: for
 thy law [is] my delight.
119:78 Let the proud be ashamed; for they dealt perversely with
 me without a cause: [but] I will meditate in thy precepts.
119:79 Let those that fear thee turn to me, and those that have
 known thy testimonies.
119:80 Let my heart be sound in thy statutes; that I may not be
119:81 CAPH. My soul fainteth for thy salvation: [but] I hope in
 thy word.
119:82 My eyes fail for thy word, saying, When wilt thou comfort
119:83 For I am become like a bottle in the smoke; [yet] I do
 not forget thy statutes.
119:84 How many [are] the days of thy servant? when wilt thou
 execute judgment on them that persecute me?
119:85 The proud have digged pits for me, which [are] not
 according to thy law.
119:86 All thy commandments [are] faithful: they persecute me
 wrongfully; help thou me.
119:87 They had almost consumed me upon earth; but I forsook not
 thy precepts.
119:88 Revive me after thy loving-kindness; so shall I keep the
 testimony of thy mouth.
119:89 LAMED. For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.
119:90 Thy faithfulness [is] to all generations: thou hast
 established the earth, and it abideth.
119:91 They continue this day according to thy ordinances: for
 all [are] thy servants.
119:92 Unless thy law [had been] my delights, I should then have
 perished in my affliction.
119:93 I will never forget thy precepts: for with them thou hast
 revived me.
119:94 I [am] thine, save me; for I have sought thy precepts.
119:95 The wicked have waited for me to destroy me: [but] I will
 consider thy testimonies.
119:96 I have seen an end of all perfection: [but] thy
 commandment [is] exceeding broad.
119:97 MEM. O how I love thy law! it [is] my meditation all the
119:98 Thou through thy commandments hast made me wiser than my
 enemies: for they [are] ever with me.
119:99 I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy
 testimonies [are] my meditation.
119:100 I understand more than the ancients, because I keep thy
119:101 I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I
 might keep thy word.
119:102 I have not departed from thy judgments: for thou hast
 taught me.
119:103 How sweet are thy words to my taste! [yes, sweeter] than
 honey to my mouth!
119:104 Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I
 hate every false way.
119:105 NUN. Thy word [is] a lamp to my feet, and a light to my
119:106 I have sworn, and I will perform [it], that I will keep
 thy righteous judgments.
119:107 I am afflicted very much: revive me, O LORD, according
 to thy word.
119:108 Accept, I beseech thee, the free-will-offerings of my
 mouth, O LORD, and teach me thy judgments.
119:109 My soul [is] continually in my hand: yet I do not forget
 thy law.
119:110 The wicked have laid a snare for me: yet I erred not
 from thy precepts.
119:111 Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage for ever:
 for they [are] the rejoicing of my heart.
119:112 I have inclined my heart to perform thy statutes always,
 [even to] the end.
119:113 SAMECH. I hate [vain] thoughts: but thy law do I love.
119:114 Thou [art] my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy
119:115 Depart from me, ye evil-doers: for I will keep the
 commandments of my God.
119:116 Uphold me according to thy word, that I may live: and
 let me not be ashamed of my hope.
119:117 Support me, and I shall be safe: and I will have respect
 to thy statutes continually.
119:118 Thou hast trodden down all them that err from thy
 statutes: for their deceit is falsehood.
119:119 Thou puttest away all the wicked of the earth [like]
 dross: therefore I love thy testimonies.
119:120 My flesh trembleth for fear of thee; and I am afraid of
 thy judgments.
119:121 AIN. I have done judgment and justice; leave me not to
 my oppressors.
119:122 Be surety for thy servant for good: let not the proud
 oppress me.
119:123 My eyes fail for thy salvation, and for the word of thy
119:124 Deal with thy servant according to thy mercy, and teach
 me thy statutes.
119:125 I [am] thy servant; give me understanding, that I may
 know thy testimonies.
119:126 [It is] time for [thee], LORD, to work: [for] they have
 made void thy law.
119:127 Therefore I love thy commandments above gold; yes, above
 fine gold.
119:128 Therefore I esteem all [thy] precepts [concerning] all
 [things to be] right; [and] I hate every false way.
119:129 PE. Thy testimonies [are] wonderful: therefore doth my
 soul keep them.
119:130 The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth
 understanding to the simple.
119:131 I opened my mouth, and panted: for I longed for thy
119:132 Look thou upon me, and be merciful to me, as thou usest
 to do to those that love thy name.
119:133 Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity
 have dominion over me.
119:134 Deliver me from the oppression of man: so will I keep
 thy precepts.
119:135 Make thy face to shine upon thy servant: and teach me
 thy statutes.
119:136 Rivers of waters run down my eyes, because they keep not
 thy law.
119:137 TSADDI. Righteous [art] thou, O LORD, and upright [are]
 thy judgments.
119:138 Thy testimonies [that] thou hast commanded [are]
 righteous and very faithful.
119:139 My zeal hath consumed me; because my enemies have
 forgotten thy words.
119:140 Thy word [is] very pure: therefore thy servant loveth
119:141 I [am] small and despised: [yet] I do not forget thy
119:142 Thy righteousness [is] an everlasting righteousness, and
 thy law [is] the truth.
119:143 Trouble and anguish have taken hold on me: [yet] thy
 commandments [are] my delights.
119:144 The righteousness of thy testimonies [is] everlasting:
 give me understanding, and I shall live.
119:145 KOPH. I cried with [my] whole heart; hear me, O LORD: I
 will keep thy statutes.
119:146 I cried to thee; save me, and I shall keep thy
119:147 I came before the dawning of the morning, and cried: I
 hoped in thy word.
119:148 My eyes anticipated the [night] watches, that I might
 meditate in thy word.
119:149 Hear my voice, according to thy loving-kindness: O LORD,
 revive me according to thy judgment.
119:150 They draw nigh that follow after mischief: they are far
 from thy law.
119:151 Thou [art] near, O LORD; and all thy commandments [are]
119:152 Concerning thy testimonies, I have known of old that
 thou hast founded them for ever.
119:153 RESH. Consider my affliction, and deliver me: for I do
 not forget thy law.
119:154 Plead my cause, and deliver me: revive me according to
 thy word.
119:155 Salvation [is] far from the wicked: for they seek not
 thy statutes.
119:156 Great [are] thy tender mercies, O LORD: revive me
 according to thy judgments.
119:157 Many [are] my persecutors and my enemies; [yet] I do not
 decline from thy testimonies.
119:158 I beheld the transgressors, and was grieved; because
 they kept not thy word.
119:159 Consider how I love thy precepts: revive me, O LORD,
 according to thy loving-kindness.
119:160 Thy word [is] true [from] the beginning: and every one
 of thy righteous judgments [endureth] for ever.
119:161 SCHIN. Princes have persecuted me without a cause; but
 my heart standeth in awe of thy word.
119:162 I rejoice at thy word, as one that findeth great spoil.
119:163 I hate and abhor lying: [but] thy law do I love.
119:164 Seven times a day do I praise thee, because of thy
 righteous judgments.
119:165 Great peace have they who love thy law: and nothing
 shall cause them to stumble.
119:166 LORD, I have hoped for thy salvation, and performed thy

 ways [are] before thee.

 understanding according to thy word.
119:170 Let my supplication come before thee: deliver me
 according to thy word.
119:171 My lips shall utter praise, when thou hast taught me thy
119:172 My tongue shall speak of thy word: for all thy
 commandments [are] righteousness.
119:173 Let thy hand help me; for I have chosen thy precepts.
119:174 I have longed for thy salvation, O LORD; and thy law
 [is] my delight.
119:175 Let my soul live, and it shall praise thee; and let thy
 judgments help me.
