Psalm 119:89-176 Darby’s Translation

89  LAMED. For ever, O Jehovah, thy word is settled in the heavens. 90  Thy faithfulness is from generation to generation: thou hast established the earth, and it standeth. 91  By thine ordinances they stand this day; for all things are thy servants.

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

93  I will never forget thy precepts; for by them thou hast quickened me.

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

95  The wicked have awaited me to destroy me; [but] I attend unto thy testimonies.

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

97  MEM. Oh how I love thy law! it is my meditation all the day.

98  Thy commandments make me wiser than mine enemies; for they are ever with me. 99  I have more understanding than all my teachers; for thy testimonies are my meditation. 100  I understand more than the aged, because I have observed thy precepts.

101  I have refrained my feet from every evil path, that I might keep thy word.

102  I have not departed from thy judgments; for it is thou that hast taught me.

103  How sweet are thy ·words unto my taste! more than honey to my mouth! 104  From thy precepts I get understanding; therefore I hate every false path.

105  NUN. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

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

107  I am afflicted very much; O Jehovah, quicken me according to thy word.

108  Accept, I beseech thee, Jehovah, the voluntary-offerings of my mouth, and teach me thy judgments.

109  My life is continually in my hand; but I do not forget thy law. 110  The wicked have laid a snare for me; but I have not wandered from thy precepts.

111  Thy testimonies have I taken as a heritage for ever; for they are the rejoicing of my heart. 112  I have inclined my heart to perform thy statutes for ever, unto the end.

113  SAMECH. The double-minded have I hated; but thy law do I love.

114  Thou art my hiding-place and my shield: I hope in thy word.

115  Depart from me, ye evil-doers; and I will observe the commandments of my God.

116  Uphold me according to thy ·word, that I may live; and let me not be ashamed of my hope. 117  Hold thou me up, and I shall be safe; and I will have respect unto thy statutes continually.

118  Thou hast set at nought all them that wander from thy statutes; for their deceit is falsehood. 119  Thou puttest away all the wicked of the earth [like] dross; therefore I love thy testimonies. 120  My flesh shuddereth for fear of thee; and I am afraid of thy judgments.

121  AIN. I have done judgment and justice: leave me not to mine oppressors. 122  Be surety for thy servant for good; let not the proud oppress me.

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

124  Deal with thy servant according to thy loving-kindness, and teach me thy statutes. 125  I am thy servant; give me understanding that I may know thy testimonies.

126  It is time for Jehovah to work: they have made void thy law.

127  Therefore I love thy commandments above gold, yea, above fine gold. 128  Therefore I regard all [thy] precepts concerning all things to be right: I hate every false path.

129  PE. Thy testimonies are wonderful; therefore doth my soul observe them.

130  The entrance of thy words giveth light, giving understanding unto the simple.

131  I opened my mouth wide and panted; for I longed for thy commandments.

132  Turn unto me, and be gracious unto me, as thou art wont to do unto those that love thy name.

133  Establish my steps in thy ·word; and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.

134  Deliver me from the oppression of man; and I will keep thy precepts.

135  Make thy face to shine upon thy servant, and teach me thy statutes.

136  Mine eyes run down with streams of water, because they keep not thy law.

137  TZADE. Righteous art thou, Jehovah, and upright are thy judgments. 138  Thou hast commanded thy testimonies in righteousness and exceeding faithfulness.

139  My zeal destroyeth me, because mine oppressors have forgotten thy words.

140  Thy ·word is exceeding pure, and thy servant loveth it.

141  I am little and despised: thy precepts have I not forgotten.

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

143  Trouble and anguish have taken hold upon me: thy commandments are my delights. 144  The righteousness of thy testimonies is for ever: give me understanding, and I shall live.

145  KOPH. I have called with [my] whole heart; answer me, O Jehovah: I will observe thy statutes. 146  I call upon thee; save me, and I will keep thy testimonies.

147  I anticipate the morning-dawn and I cry: I hope in thy word. 148  Mine eyes anticipate the night-watches, that I may meditate in thy ·word.

149  Hear my voice according to thy loving-kindness: O Jehovah, quicken me according to thy judgment.

150  They have drawn nigh that follow after mischief: they are far from thy law. 151  Thou, Jehovah, art near, and all thy commandments are truth.

152  From thy testimonies, I have known of old that thou hast founded them for ever.

153  RESH. See mine affliction, and deliver me; for I have not forgotten thy law. 154  Plead my cause, and redeem me: quicken me according to thy ·word.

155  Salvation is far from the wicked; for they seek not thy statutes.

156  Many are thy tender mercies, O Jehovah; quicken me according to thy judgments.

157  Many are my persecutors and mine oppressors; I have not declined from thy testimonies.

158  I beheld them that deal treacherously, and was grieved; because they kept not thy ·word.

159  See how I have loved thy precepts: quicken me, O Jehovah, according to thy loving-kindness.

160  The sum of thy word is truth, and every righteous judgment of thine is for ever.

161  SHIN. Princes have persecuted me without a cause; but my heart standeth in awe of thy word.

162  I have joy in thy ·word, as one that findeth great spoil.

163  I hate and abhor falsehood; thy law do I love.

164  Seven times a day do I praise thee because of thy righteous judgments.

165  Great peace have they that love thy law, and nothing doth stumble them.

166  I have hoped for thy salvation, O Jehovah, and have done thy commandments.

167  My soul hath kept thy testimonies, and I love them exceedingly. 168  I have kept thy precepts and thy testimonies; for all my ways are before thee.

169  TAU. Let my cry come near before thee, Jehovah: give me understanding according to thy word. 170  Let my supplication come before thee: deliver me according to thy ·word.

171  My lips shall pour forth praise when thou hast taught me thy statutes.

172  My tongue shall speak aloud of thy ·word; for all thy commandments are righteousness.

173  Let thy hand be for my help; for I have chosen thy precepts. 174  I have longed for thy salvation, O Jehovah, and thy law is my delight.

175  Let my soul live, and it shall praise thee; and let thy judgments help me.

176  I have gone astray like a lost sheep: seek thy servant; for I have not forgotten thy commandments.
