Psalm 119:89-176 World English Bible

89  Yahweh, your word is settled in heaven forever. 90  Your faithfulness is to all generations.
You have established the earth, and it remains. 91  Your laws remain to this day,
for all things serve you.

92  Unless your law had been my delight,
I would have perished in my affliction.

93  I will never forget your precepts,
for with them, you have revived me.

94  I am yours.
Save me, for I have sought your precepts.

95  The wicked have waited for me, to destroy me.
I will consider your statutes.

96  I have seen a limit to all perfection,
but your commands are boundless.

MEM

97  How I love your law!
It is my meditation all day.

98  Your commandments make me wiser than my enemies,
for your commandments are always with me. 99  I have more understanding than all my teachers,
for your testimonies are my meditation. 100  I understand more than the aged,
because I have kept your precepts.

101  I have kept my feet from every evil way,
that I might observe your word.

102  I have not turned aside from your ordinances,
for you have taught me.

103  How sweet are your promises to my taste,
more than honey to my mouth! 104  Through your precepts, I get understanding;
therefore I hate every false way.

NUN

105  Your word is a lamp to my feet,
and a light for my path.

106  I have sworn, and have confirmed it,
that I will obey your righteous ordinances.

107  I am afflicted very much.
Revive me, Yahweh, according to your word.

108  Accept, I beg you, the willing offerings of my mouth.
Yahweh, teach me your ordinances.

109  My soul is continually in my hand,
yet I won’t forget your law. 110  The wicked have laid a snare for me,
yet I haven’t gone astray from your precepts.

111  I have taken your testimonies as a heritage forever,
for they are the joy of my heart. 112  I have set my heart to perform your statutes forever,
even to the end.

SAMEKH

113  I hate double-minded men,
but I love your law.

114  You are my hiding place and my shield.
I hope in your word.

115  Depart from me, you evildoers,
that I may keep the commandments of my God.

116  Uphold me according to your word, that I may live.
Let me not be ashamed of my hope. 117  Hold me up, and I will be safe,
and will have respect for your statutes continually.

118  You reject all those who stray from your statutes,
for their deceit is in vain. 119  You put away all the wicked of the earth like dross.
Therefore I love your testimonies. 120  My flesh trembles for fear of you.
I am afraid of your judgments.

AYIN

121  I have done what is just and righteous.
Don’t leave me to my oppressors. 122  Ensure your servant’s well-being.
Don’t let the proud oppress me.

123  My eyes fail looking for your salvation,
for your righteous word.

124  Deal with your servant according to your loving kindness.
Teach me your statutes. 125  I am your servant. Give me understanding,
that I may know your testimonies.

126  It is time to act, Yahweh,
for they break your law.

127  Therefore I love your commandments more than gold,
yes, more than pure gold. 128  Therefore I consider all of your precepts to be right.
I hate every false way.

PEY

129  Your testimonies are wonderful,
therefore my soul keeps them.

130  The entrance of your words gives light.
It gives understanding to the simple.

131  I opened my mouth wide and panted,
for I longed for your commandments.

132  Turn to me, and have mercy on me,
as you always do to those who love your name.

133  Establish my footsteps in your word.
Don’t let any iniquity have dominion over me.

134  Redeem me from the oppression of man,
so I will observe your precepts.

135  Make your face shine on your servant.
Teach me your statutes.

136  Streams of tears run down my eyes,
because they don’t observe your law.

TZADI

137  You are righteous, Yahweh.
Your judgments are upright. 138  You have commanded your statutes in righteousness.
They are fully trustworthy.

139  My zeal wears me out,
because my enemies ignore your words.

140  Your promises have been thoroughly tested,
and your servant loves them.

141  I am small and despised.
I don’t forget your precepts.

142  Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness.
Your law is truth.

143  Trouble and anguish have taken hold of me.
Your commandments are my delight. 144  Your testimonies are righteous forever.
Give me understanding, that I may live.

KUF

145  I have called with my whole heart.
Answer me, Yahweh!
I will keep your statutes. 146  I have called to you. Save me!
I will obey your statutes.

147  I rise before dawn and cry for help.
I put my hope in your words. 148  My eyes stay open through the night watches,
that I might meditate on your word.

149  Hear my voice according to your loving kindness.
Revive me, Yahweh, according to your ordinances.

150  They draw near who follow after wickedness.
They are far from your law. 151  You are near, Yahweh.
All your commandments are truth.

152  Of old I have known from your testimonies,
that you have founded them forever.

RESH

153  Consider my affliction, and deliver me,
for I don’t forget your law. 154  Plead my cause, and redeem me!
Revive me according to your promise.

155  Salvation is far from the wicked,
for they don’t seek your statutes.

156  Great are your tender mercies, Yahweh.
Revive me according to your ordinances.

157  Many are my persecutors and my adversaries.
I haven’t swerved from your testimonies.

158  I look at the faithless with loathing,
because they don’t observe your word.

159  Consider how I love your precepts.
Revive me, Yahweh, according to your loving kindness.

160  All of your words are truth.
Every one of your righteous ordinances endures forever.

SIN AND SHIN

161  Princes have persecuted me without a cause,
but my heart stands in awe of your words.

162  I rejoice at your word,
as one who finds great spoil.

163  I hate and abhor falsehood.
I love your law.

164  Seven times a day, I praise you,
because of your righteous ordinances.

165  Those who love your law have great peace.
Nothing causes them to stumble.

166  I have hoped for your salvation, Yahweh.
I have done your commandments.

167  My soul has observed your testimonies.
I love them exceedingly. 168  I have obeyed your precepts and your testimonies,
for all my ways are before you.

TAV

169  Let my cry come before you, Yahweh.
Give me understanding according to your word. 170  Let my supplication come before you.
Deliver me according to your word.

171  Let my lips utter praise,
for you teach me your statutes.

172  Let my tongue sing of your word,
for all your commandments are righteousness.

173  Let your hand be ready to help me,
for I have chosen your precepts. 174  I have longed for your salvation, Yahweh.
Your law is my delight.

175  Let my soul live, that I may praise you.
Let your ordinances help me.

176  I have gone astray like a lost sheep.
Seek your servant, for I don’t forget your commandments.
