1 Blessed are they that are perfect in the way, Who walk in the law of Jehovah.

2 Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, That seek him with the whole heart.

3 Yea, they do no unrighteousness; They walk in his ways.

4 Thou hast commanded us thy precepts, That we should observe them diligently.

5 Oh that my ways were established To observe thy statutes!

6 Then shall I not be put to shame, When I have respect unto all thy commandments.

7 I will give thanks unto thee with uprightness of heart, When I learn thy righteous judgments.

8 I will observe thy statutes: Oh forsake me not utterly.

9 Wherewith shall a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed thereto according to thy word.

10 With my whole heart have I sought thee: Oh let me not wander from thy commandments.

11 Thy word have I laid up in my heart, That I might not sin against thee.

12 Blessed art thou, O Jehovah: Teach me thy statutes.

13 With my lips have I declared All the ordinances of thy mouth.

14 I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies, As much as in all riches.

19 I am a sojourner in the earth: Hide not thy commandments from me.

20 My soul breaketh for the longing That it hath unto thine ordinances at all times.

21 Thou hast rebuked the proud that are cursed, That do wander from thy commandments.

22 Take away from me reproach and contempt; For I have kept thy testimonies.

24 Thy testimonies also are my delight And my counsellors.

25 My soul cleaveth unto the dust: Quicken thou me according to thy word.

26 I declared my ways, and thou answeredst me: Teach me thy statutes.

115 Depart from me, you evildoers, that I may keep the commandments of my God +[hearing, receiving, loving, and obeying them+].

116 Uphold me according to Your promise, that I may live; and let me not be put to shame in my hope!

117 Hold me up, that I may be safe and have regard for Your statutes continually!

118 You spurn {and} set at nought all those who stray from Your statutes, for their own lying deceives them {and} their tricks are in vain.

119 You put away {and} count as dross all the wicked of the earth +[for there is no true metal in them+]; therefore I love Your testimonies.

120 My flesh trembles {and} shudders for fear {and} reverential, worshipful awe of You, and I am afraid {and} in dread of Your judgments.

121 I have done justice and righteousness; leave me not to those who would oppress me.

122 Be surety for Your servant for good +[as Judah was surety for the safety of Benjamin+]; let not the proud oppress me.

123 My eyes fail, watching for Your salvation and for the fulfillment of Your righteous promise.

124 Deal with Your servant according to Your mercy {and} loving-kindness, and teach me Your statutes.

125 I am Your servant; give me understanding (discernment and comprehension), that I may know (discern and be familiar with the character of) Your testimonies.

126 It is time for the Lord to act; they have frustrated Your law.

127 Therefore I love Your commandments more than +[resplendent+] gold, yes, more than +[perfectly+] refined gold.

128 Therefore I esteem as right all, yes, all Your precepts; I hate every false way.

129 Your testimonies are wonderful +[far exceeding anything conceived by man+]; therefore my +[penitent+] self keeps them +[hearing, receiving, loving, and obeying them+].

130 The entrance {and} unfolding of Your words give light; their unfolding gives understanding (discernment and comprehension) to the simple.

131 I opened my mouth and panted +[with eager desire+], for I longed for Your commandments.

132 Look upon me, be merciful unto me, {and} show me favor, as is Your way to those who love Your name.

133 Establish my steps {and} direct them by +[means of+] Your word; let not any iniquity have dominion over me.

134 Deliver me from the oppression of man; so will I keep Your precepts +[hearing, receiving, loving, and obeying them+].

135 Make Your face shine +[with pleasure+] upon Your servant, and teach me Your statutes.

136 Streams of water run down my eyes, because men do not keep Your law +[they hear it not, nor receive it, love it, or obey it+].

137 +[Rigidly+] righteous are You, O Lord, and upright are Your judgments {and} all expressions of Your will.

138 You have commanded {and} appointed Your testimonies in righteousness and in great faithfulness.

139 My zeal has consumed me {and} cut me off, because my adversaries have forgotten Your words.

140 Your word is very pure (tried and well refined); therefore Your servant loves it.

141 I am small (insignificant) and despised, but I do not forget Your precepts.

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

143 Trouble and anguish have found {and} taken hold on me, yet Your commandments are my delight.

144 Your righteous testimonies are everlasting {and} Your decrees are binding to eternity; give me understanding and I shall live +[give me discernment and comprehension and I shall not die+].

145 I cried with my whole heart; hear me, O Lord; I will keep Your statutes +[I will hear, receive, love, and obey them+].

146 I cried to You; save me, that I may keep Your testimonies +[hearing, receiving, loving, and obeying them+].

147 I anticipated the dawning of the morning and cried +[in childlike prayer+]; I hoped in Your word.

148 My eyes anticipate the night watches {and} I am awake before the cry of the watchman, that I may meditate on Your word.

149 Hear my voice according to Your steadfast love; O Lord, quicken me {and} give me life according to Your +[righteous+] decrees.

150 They draw near who follow after wrong thinking {and} persecute me with wickedness; they are far from Your law.

151 You are near, O Lord +[nearer to me than my foes+], and all Your commandments are truth.

152 Of old have I known Your testimonies, {and} for a long time, +[therefore it is a thoroughly established conviction+] that You have founded them forever.

153 Consider my affliction and deliver me, for I do not forget Your law.

154 Plead my cause and redeem me; revive me {and} give me life according to Your word.

155 Salvation is far from the wicked, for they seek not {nor} hunger for Your statutes.

156 Great are Your tender mercy {and} loving-kindness, O Lord; give me life according to Your ordinances.

157 Many are my persecutors and my adversaries, yet I do not swerve from Your testimonies.

158 I behold the treacherous and am grieved {and} loathe them, because they do not respect Your law +[neither hearing, receiving, loving, nor obeying it+].

159 Consider how I love Your precepts; revive me {and} give life to me, O Lord, according to Your loving-kindness!

160 The sum of Your word is truth +[the total of the full meaning of all Your individual precepts+]; and every one of Your righteous decrees endures forever.

161 Princes pursue {and} persecute me without cause, but my heart stands in awe of Your words +[dreading violation of them far more than the force of prince or potentate+].

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

163 I hate and abhor falsehood, but Your law do I love.

164 Seven times a day {and} all day long do I praise You because of Your righteous decrees.

165 Great peace have they who love Your law; nothing shall offend them {or} make them stumble.

166 I am hoping {and} waiting +[eagerly+] for Your salvation, O Lord, and I do Your commandments.

167 Your testimonies have I kept +[hearing, receiving, loving, and obeying them+]; I love them exceedingly!

168 I have observed Your precepts {and} Your testimonies, for all my ways are +[fully known+] before You.

169 Let my mournful cry {and} supplication come +[near+] before You, O Lord; give me understanding (discernment and comprehension) according to Your word +[of assurance and promise+].

170 Let my supplication come before You; deliver me according to Your word!

171 My lips shall pour forth praise +[with thanksgiving and renewed trust+] when You teach me Your statutes.

172 My tongue shall sing +[praise for the fulfillment+] of Your word, for all Your commandments are righteous.

173 Let Your hand be ready to help me, for I have chosen Your precepts.

174 I have longed for Your salvation, O Lord, and Your law is my delight.

175 Let me live that I may praise You, and let Your decrees help me.

176 I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek, inquire for, {and} demand Your servant, for I do not forget Your commandments.

Basic Bible

Psalm 119

1 <'ALEPH> Happy are they who are without sin in their ways, walking in the law of the Lord.

2 Happy are they who keep his unchanging word, searching after him with all their heart.

3 They do no evil; they go in his ways.

4 You have put your orders into our hearts, so that we might keep them with care.

5 If only my ways were ordered so that I might keep your rules!

6 Then I would not be put to shame, as long as I have respect for all your teaching.

7 I will give you praise with an upright heart in learning your right decisions.

8 I will keep your rules: O give me not up completely.

9 How may a young man make his way clean? by guiding it after your word.

10 I have made search for you with all my heart: O let me not go wandering far from your teaching.

11 I have kept your sayings secretly in my heart, so that I might do no sin against you.

12 Praise be to you, O Lord: give me knowledge of your rules.

13 With my lips have I made clear all the decisions of your mouth.

14 I have taken as much delight in the way of your unchanging word, as in all wealth.

15 I will give thought to your orders, and have respect for your ways.

16 I will have delight in your rules; I will not let your word go out of my mind.

17 Give me, your servant, the reward of life, so that I may keep your word;

18 Let my eyes be open to see the wonders of your law.

19 I am living in a strange land: do not let your teachings be kept secret from me.

20 My soul is broken with desire for your decisions at all times.

21 Your hand has been against the men of pride, a curse is on those who go wandering out of your way.

22 Take away from me shame and bitter words; for I have kept your unchanging word in my heart.

23 Rulers make evil designs against me; but your servant gives thought to your rules.

24 Your unchanging word is my delight, and the guide of my footsteps.

25 My soul is joined to the dust: O give me life, in keeping with your word.

26 I put the record of my ways before you, and you gave me an answer: O give me knowledge of your rules.

27 Make the way of your orders clear to me; then my thoughts will be ever on your wonders.

28 My soul is wasted with sorrow; give me strength again in keeping with your word

29 Take from me every false way; and in mercy give me your law.

30 I have taken the way of faith: I have kept your decisions before me.

31 I have been true to your unchanging word; O Lord, do not put me to shame.

33 O Lord, let me see the way of your rules, and I will keep it to the end.

34 Give me wisdom, so that I may keep your law; going after it with all my heart.

38 Give effect to your word to your servant, in whose heart is the fear of you.

39 Take away the shame which is my fear; for your decisions are good.

40 See how great is my desire for your orders: give me life in your righteousness.

41 Let your mercies come to me, O Lord, even your salvation, as you have said.

42 So that I may have an answer for the man who would put me to shame; for I have faith in your word.

43 Take not your true word quite out of my mouth; for I have put my hope in your decisions.

44 So that I may keep your law for ever and ever;

45 So that my way may be in a wide place: because my search has been for your orders.

46 So that I may give knowledge of your unchanging word before kings, and not be put to shame.

47 And so that I may take delight in your teachings, to which I have given my love.

48 And so that my hands may be stretched out to you; and I will give thought to your rules.

49 Keep in mind your word to your servant, for on it has my hope been fixed.

50 This is my comfort in my trouble; that your sayings have given me life.

51 The men of pride have made great sport of me; but I have not been turned from your law.

52 I have kept the memory of your decisions from times past, O Lord; and they have been my comfort.

53 I am burning with wrath, because of the sinners who have given up your law.

54 Your rules have been melodies to me, while I have been living in strange lands.

55 I have given thought to your name in the night, O Lord, and have kept your law.

56 This has been true of me, that I have kept your orders in my heart.

57 The Lord is my heritage: I have said that I would be ruled by your words.

58 I have given my mind to do your pleasure with all my heart; have mercy on me, as you have said.

59 I gave thought to my steps, and my feet were turned into the way of your unchanging word.

60 I was quick to do your orders, and let no time be wasted.

61 The cords of evil-doers are round me; but I have kept in mind your law.

62 In the middle of the night I will get up to give you praise, because of all your right decisions.

63 I keep company with all your worshippers, and those who have your orders in their memory.

64 The earth, O Lord, is full of your mercy: give me knowledge of your rules.

65 You have done good to your servant, O Lord, in keeping with your word.

66 Give me knowledge and good sense; for I have put my faith in your teachings.

67 Before I was in trouble I went out of the way; but now I keep your word.

68 You are good, and your works are good; give me knowledge of your rules.

69 The men of pride have said false things about me; but I will keep your orders in my heart.

70 Their hearts are shut up with fat; but my delight is in your law.

71 It is good for me to have been through trouble; so that I might come to the knowledge of your rules.

72 The law of your mouth is better to me than thousands of gold and silver.

73 Your hands have made me, and given me form: give me wisdom, so that I may have knowledge of your teaching.

74 Your worshippers will see me and be glad; because my hope has been in your word.

75 I have seen, O Lord, that your decisions are right, and that in unchanging faith you have sent trouble on me.

76 Let your mercy now be my comfort, as you have said to your servant.

77 Let your gentle mercies come to me, so that I may have life; for your law is my delight.

78 Let the men of pride be shamed; because they have falsely given decision against me; but I will give thought to your orders.

79 Let your worshippers be turned to me, and those who have knowledge of your words.

80 Let all my heart be given to your orders, so that I may not be put to shame.

81 My soul is wasted with desire for your salvation: but I have hope in your word.

82 My eyes are full of weariness with searching for your word, saying, When will you give me comfort?

83 For I have become like a wine-skin black with smoke; but I still keep the memory of your rules.

84 How short is the life of your servant! when will you give your decision against those who are attacking me?

85 The men of pride, who are turned away from your law, have put nets for me.

86 All your teachings are certain; they go after me with evil design; give me your help.

87 They had almost put an end to me on earth; but I did not give up your orders.

88 Give me life in your mercy; so that I may be ruled by the unchanging word of your mouth.

89 For ever, O Lord, your word is fixed in heaven.

90 Your faith is unchanging from generation to generation: you have put the earth in its place, and it is not moved.

91 They are ruled this day by your decisions; for all things are your servants.

92 If your law had not been my delight, my troubles would have put an end to me.

93 I will ever keep your orders in mind; for in them I have life.

94 I am yours, O be my saviour; for my desire has been for your rules.

95 The sinners have been waiting for me to give me up to destruction; but I will give all my mind to your unchanging ward.

96 I have seen that nothing on earth is complete; but your teaching is very wide.

97 O what love I have for your law! I give thought to it all the day.

98 Your teaching has made me wiser than my haters: for it is mine for ever.

99 I have more knowledge than all my teachers, because I give thought to your unchanging word.

100 I have more wisdom than the old, because I have kept your orders.

101 I have kept back my feet from all evil ways, so that I might be true to your word.

102 My heart has not been turned away from your decisions; for you have been my teacher.

103 How sweet are your sayings to my taste! truly, they are sweeter than honey in my mouth!

104 Through your orders I get wisdom; for this reason I am a hater of every false way.

105 Your word is a light for my feet, ever shining on my way.

106 I have made an oath and kept it, to be guided by your upright decisions.

107 I am greatly troubled, O Lord, give me life in keeping with your word.

108 Take, O Lord, the free offerings of my mouth, and give me knowledge of your decisions.

109 My soul is ever in danger; but I still keep the memory of your law.

110 Sinners have put a net to take me; but I was true to your orders.

111 I have taken your unchanging word as an eternal heritage; for it is the joy of my heart.

112 My heart is ever ready to keep your rules, even to the end.

113 I am a hater of men of doubting mind; but I am a lover of your law.

114 You are my secret place and my breastplate against danger; my hope is in your word.

115 Go far from me, you evil-doers; so that I may keep the teachings of my God.

116 Be my support as you have said, and give me life; let not my hope be turned to shame.

117 Let me not be moved, and I will be safe, and ever take delight in your rules.

118 You have overcome all those who are wandering from your rules; for all their thoughts are false.

119 All the sinners of the earth are like waste metal in your eyes; and for this cause I give my love to your unchanging word.

120 My flesh is moved for fear of you; I give honour to your decisions.

121 <`AYIN> I have done what is good and right: you will not give me into the hands of those who are working against me.

122 Take your servant's interests into your keeping; let me not be crushed by the men of pride.

123 My eyes are wasted with desire for your salvation, and for the word of your righteousness.

124 Be good to your servant in your mercy, and give me teaching in your rules.

125 I am your servant; give me wisdom, so that I may have knowledge of your unchanging word.

126 It is time, O Lord, for you to let your work be seen; for they have made your law without effect.

127 For this reason I have greater love far your teachings than for gold, even for shining gold.

128 Because of it I keep straight in all things by your orders; and I am a hater of every false way.

129 Your unchanging word is full of wonder; for this reason my soul keeps it.

130 The opening of your words gives light; it gives good sense to the simple.

131 My mouth was open wide, waiting with great desire for your teachings.

132 Let your eyes be turned to me, and have mercy on me, as it is right for you to do to those who are lovers of your name.

133 Let my steps be guided by your word; and let not sin have control over me.

134 Make me free from the cruel rule of man; then I will keep your orders.

135 Let your servant see the shining of your face; give me knowledge of your rules.

136 Rivers of water are flowing from my eyes, because men do not keep your law.

137 O Lord, great is your righteousness, and upright are your decisions.

138 You have given your unchanging word in righteousness, and it is for ever.

139 My passion has overcome me; because my haters are turned away from your words.

140 Your word is of tested value; and it is dear to your servant.

141 I am small and of no account; but I keep your orders in mind.

142 Your righteousness is an unchanging righteousness, and your law is certain.

143 Pain and trouble have overcome me: but your teachings are my delight.

144 The righteousness of your unchanging word is eternal; give me wisdom so that I may have life.

145 I have made my prayer with all my heart; give answer to me, O Lord: I will keep your rules.

146 My cry has gone up to you; take me out of trouble, and I will be guided by your unchanging word.

147 Before the sun is up, my cry for help comes to your ear; my hope is in your words.

148 In the night watches I am awake, so that I may give thought to your saying.

149 Let my voice come to you, in your mercy; O Lord, by your decisions give me life.

150 Those who have evil designs against me come near; they are far from your law.

151 You are near, O Lord; and all your teachings are true.

152 I have long had knowledge that your unchanging word is for ever.

153 O see my trouble, and be my saviour; for I keep your law in my mind,

154 Undertake my cause, and come to my help, give me life, as you have said.

155 Salvation is far from evil-doers; for they have made no search for your rules.

156 Great is the number of your mercies, O Lord; give me life in keeping with your decisions.

157 I saw with hate those who were untrue to you; for they did not keep your saying.

159 See how great is my love for your orders: give me life, O Lord, in keeping with your mercy.

160 Your word is true from the first; and your upright decision is unchanging for ever.

161 Rulers have been cruel to me without cause; but I have the fear of your word in my heart.

162 I am delighted by your saying, like a man who makes discovery of great wealth.

163 I am full of hate and disgust for false words; but I am a lover of your law.

164 Seven times a day do I give you praise, because of your upright decisions.

165 Great peace have lovers of your law; they have no cause for falling.

166 Lord, my hope has been in your salvation; and I have kept your teachings.

167 My soul has kept your unchanging word; great is my love for it.

168 I have been ruled by your orders; for all my ways are before you.

169 Let my cry come before you, O Lord; give me wisdom in keeping with your word.

170 Let my prayer come before you; take me out of trouble, as you have said.

171 Let my lips be flowing with praise, because you have given me knowledge of your rules.

172 Let my tongue make songs in praise of your word; for all your teachings are righteousness.

173 Let your hand be near for my help; for I have given my heart to your orders.

174 All my desire has been for your salvation, O Lord; and your law is my delight.

175 Give life to my soul so that it may give you praise; and let your decisions be my support.

176 I have gone out of the way like a wandering sheep; make search for your servant; for I keep your teachings ever in mind.

1 ALEPH. Blessed are the perfect in the way, who walk in the law of Jehovah.

2 Blessed are they that observe his testimonies, that seek him with the whole heart;

3 Who also do no unrighteousness: they walk in his ways.

4 Thou hast enjoined thy precepts, to be kept diligently.

5 Oh that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!

6 Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy commandments.

7 I will give thee thanks with uprightness of heart, when I shall have learned thy righteous judgments.

8 I will keep thy statutes: forsake me not utterly.

9 BETH. Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his path? by taking heed according to thy word.

10 With my whole heart have I sought thee: let me not wander from thy commandments.

11 Thy �word have I hid in my heart, that I might not sin against thee.

12 Blessed art thou, Jehovah! teach me thy statutes.

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

14 I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies, as [much as] in all wealth.

15 I will meditate upon thy precepts, and have respect unto thy paths.

16 I delight myself in thy statutes; I will not forget thy word.

17 GIMEL. Deal bountifully with thy servant [and] I shall live; and I will keep thy word.

18 Open mine eyes, and I shall behold wondrous things out of thy law.

19 I am a stranger in the land; hide not thy commandments from me.

20 My soul breaketh for longing after thy judgments at all times.

21 Thou hast rebuked the proud [that are] cursed, who wander from thy commandments.

22 Roll off from me reproach and contempt; for I observe thy testimonies.

23 Princes also did sit [and] talk together against me: thy servant doth meditate in thy statutes.

24 Thy testimonies also are my delight [and] my counsellors.

25 DALETH. My soul cleaveth unto the dust: quicken me according to thy word.

26 I have declared my ways, and thou hast answered me: teach me thy statutes.

27 Make me to understand the way of thy precepts, and I will meditate upon thy wondrous works.

28 My soul melteth for sadness: strengthen me according to thy word.

29 Remove from me the way of falsehood, and graciously grant me thy law.

30 I have chosen the way of faithfulness; thy judgments have I set [before me].

31 I cleave unto thy testimonies; Jehovah, let me not be ashamed.

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

33 HE. Teach me, O Jehovah, the way of thy statutes, and I will observe it [unto] the end.

34 Give me understanding, and I will observe thy law; and I will keep it with [my] whole heart.

35 Make me to walk in the path of thy commandments; for therein do I delight.

36 Incline my heart unto thy testimonies, and not to gain.

37 Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity; quicken me in thy way.

38 Establish thy �word unto thy servant, who is [devoted] to thy fear.

39 Turn away my reproach which I fear; for thy judgments are good.

40 Behold, I have longed after thy precepts: quicken me in thy righteousness.

41 VAU. And let thy loving-kindness come unto me, O Jehovah, -- thy salvation according to thy �word.

42 So shall I have wherewith to answer him that reproacheth me; for I confide in thy word.

43 And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth; because I have hoped in thy judgments.

44 Then will I keep thy law continually, for ever and ever;

45 And I will walk at liberty, for I have sought thy precepts;

46 And I will speak of thy testimonies before kings, and will not be ashamed;

47 And I will delight myself in thy commandments, which I have loved;

48 And I will lift up my hands unto thy commandments, which I have loved, and I will meditate in thy statutes.

49 ZAIN. Remember the word for thy servant, upon which thou hast caused me to hope.

50 This is my comfort in mine affliction; for thy �word hath quickened me.

51 The proud have derided me beyond measure: I have not declined from thy law.

52 I remembered thy judgments of old, O Jehovah, and have comforted myself.

53 Burning indignation hath taken hold upon me because of the wicked who forsake thy law.

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

55 I have remembered thy name, O Jehovah, in the night, and have kept thy law.

56 This I have had, because I have observed thy precepts.

57 CHETH. My portion, O Jehovah, I have said, is to keep thy words.

58 I have sought thy favour with [my] whole heart: be gracious unto me according to thy �word.

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

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

61 The bands of the wicked have wrapped me round: I have not forgotten thy law.

62 At midnight I rise up to give thanks unto thee, because of thy righteous judgments.

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

64 The earth, O Jehovah, is full of thy loving-kindness: teach me thy statutes.

65 TETH. Thou hast dealt well with thy servant, O Jehovah, according to thy word.

66 Teach me good discernment and knowledge; for I have believed in thy commandments.

67 Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I keep thy �word.

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

69 The proud have forged falsehood against me: I will observe thy precepts with [my] whole heart.

70 Their heart is as fat as grease: as for me, I delight in thy law.

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

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

73 YOD. Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding, and I will learn thy commandments.

74 They that fear thee will see me, and rejoice; because I have hoped in thy word.

75 I know, Jehovah, that thy Judgments are righteousness, and that in faithfulness thou hast afflicted me.

76 Oh let thy loving-kindness be for my comfort, according to thy �word unto thy servant.

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

78 Let the proud be ashamed; for they have acted perversely towards me with falsehood: as for me, I meditate in thy precepts.

79 Let those that fear thee turn unto me, and those that know thy testimonies.

80 Let my heart be perfect in thy statutes, that I be not ashamed.

81 CAPH. My soul fainteth for thy salvation; I hope in thy word.

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

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

84 How many shall be the days of thy servant? when wilt thou execute judgment on them that persecute me?

85 The proud have digged pits for me, which is not according to thy law.

86 All thy commandments are faithfulness. They persecute me wrongfully: help thou me.

87 They had almost consumed me upon the earth; but as for me, I forsook not thy precepts.

88 Quicken me according to thy loving-kindness, and I will keep the testimony of thy mouth.

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.

Revised Standard Version

Psalm 119

1 Blessed are those whose way is blameless, who walk in the law of the LORD!

2 Blessed are those who keep his testimonies, who seek him with their whole heart,

3 who also do no wrong, but walk in his ways!

4 Thou hast commanded thy precepts to be kept diligently.

5 O that my ways may be steadfast in keeping thy statutes!

6 Then I shall not be put to shame, having my eyes fixed on all thy commandments.

7 I will praise thee with an upright heart, when I learn thy righteous ordinances.

8 I will observe thy statutes; O forsake me not utterly!

9 How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to thy word.

10 With my whole heart I seek thee; let me not wander from thy commandments!

11 I have laid up thy word in my heart, that I might not sin against thee.

12 Blessed be thou, O LORD; teach me thy statutes!

13 With my lips I declare all the ordinances of thy mouth.

14 In the way of thy testimonies I delight as much as in all riches.

15 I will meditate on thy precepts, and fix my eyes on thy ways.

16 I will delight in thy statutes; I will not forget thy word.

17 Deal bountifully with thy servant, that I may live and observe thy word.

18 Open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.

19 I am a sojourner on earth; hide not thy commandments from me!

20 My soul is consumed with longing for thy ordinances at all times.

21 Thou dost rebuke the insolent, accursed ones, who wander from thy commandments;

22 take away from me their scorn and contempt, for I have kept thy testimonies.

23 Even though princes sit plotting against me, thy servant will meditate on thy statutes.

24 Thy testimonies are my delight, they are my counselors.

25 My soul cleaves to the dust; revive me according to thy word!

26 When I told of my ways, thou didst answer me; teach me thy statutes!

27 Make me understand the way of thy precepts, and I will meditate on thy wondrous works.

28 My soul melts away for sorrow; strengthen me according to thy word!

29 Put false ways far from me; and graciously teach me thy law!

30 I have chosen the way of faithfulness, I set thy ordinances before me.

31 I cleave to thy testimonies, O LORD; let me not be put to shame!

32 I will run in the way of thy commandments when thou enlargest my understanding!

33 Teach me, O LORD, the way of thy statutes; and I will keep it to the end.

34 Give me understanding, that I may keep thy law and observe it with my whole heart.

35 Lead me in the path of thy commandments, for I delight in it.

36 Incline my heart to thy testimonies, and not to gain!

37 Turn my eyes from looking at vanities; and give me life in thy ways.

38 Confirm to thy servant thy promise, which is for those who fear thee.

39 Turn away the reproach which I dread; for thy ordinances are good.

40 Behold, I long for thy precepts; in thy righteousness give me life!

41 Let thy steadfast love come to me, O LORD, thy salvation according to thy promise;

42 then shall I have an answer for those who taunt me, for I trust in thy word.

43 And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth, for my hope is in thy ordinances.

44 I will keep thy law continually, for ever and ever;

45 and I shall walk at liberty, for I have sought thy precepts.

46 I will also speak of thy testimonies before kings, and shall not be put to shame;

47 for I find my delight in thy commandments, which I love.

48 I revere thy commandments, which I love, and I will meditate on thy statutes.

49 Remember thy word to thy servant, in which thou hast made me hope.

50 This is my comfort in my affliction that thy promise gives me life.

51 Godless men utterly deride me, but I do not turn away from thy law.

52 When I think of thy ordinances from of old, I take comfort, O LORD.

53 Hot indignation seizes me because of the wicked, who forsake thy law.

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

55 I remember thy name in the night, O LORD, and keep thy law.

56 This blessing has fallen to me, that I have kept thy precepts.

57 The LORD is my portion; I promise to keep thy words.

58 I entreat thy favor with all my heart; be gracious to me according to thy promise.

59 When I think of thy ways, I turn my feet to thy testimonies;

60 I hasten and do not delay to keep thy commandments.

61 Though the cords of the wicked ensnare me, I do not forget thy law.

62 At midnight I rise to praise thee, because of thy righteous ordinances.

63 I am a companion of all who fear thee, of those who keep thy precepts.

64 The earth, O LORD, is full of thy steadfast love; teach me thy statutes!

65 Thou hast dealt well with thy servant, O LORD, according to thy word.

66 Teach me good judgment and knowledge, for I believe in thy commandments.

67 Before I was afflicted I went astray; but now I keep thy word.

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

69 The godless besmear me with lies, but with my whole heart I keep thy precepts;

70 their heart is gross like fat, but I delight in thy law.

71 It is good for me that I was afflicted, that I might learn thy statutes.

72 The law of thy mouth is better to me than thousands of gold and silver pieces.

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

74 Those who fear thee shall see me and rejoice, because I have hoped in thy word.

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

76 Let thy steadfast love be ready to comfort me according to thy promise to thy servant.

77 Let thy mercy come to me, that I may live; for thy law is my delight.

78 Let the godless be put to shame, because they have subverted me with guile; as for me, I will meditate on thy precepts.

79 Let those who fear thee turn to me, that they may know thy testimonies.

80 May my heart be blameless in thy statutes, that I may not be put to shame!

81 My soul languishes for thy salvation; I hope in thy word.

82 My eyes fail with watching for thy promise; I ask, "When wilt thou comfort me?"

83 For I have become like a wineskin in the smoke, yet I have not forgotten thy statutes.

84 How long must thy servant endure? When wilt thou judge those who persecute me?

85 Godless men have dug pitfalls for me, men who do not conform to thy law.

86 All thy commandments are sure; they persecute me with falsehood; help me!

87 They have almost made an end of me on earth; but I have not forsaken thy precepts.

88 In thy steadfast love spare my life, that I may keep the testimonies of thy mouth.

89 For ever, O LORD, thy word is firmly fixed in the heavens.

90 Thy faithfulness endures to all generations; thou hast established the earth, and it stands fast.

91 By thy appointment they stand this day; for all things are thy servants.

92 If thy law had not been my delight, I should have perished in my affliction.

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

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

95 The wicked lie in wait to destroy me; but I consider thy testimonies.

96 I have seen a limit to all perfection, but thy commandment is exceedingly broad.

97 Oh, how I love thy law! It is my meditation all the day.

98 Thy commandment makes me wiser than my enemies, for it is 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, for I keep thy precepts.

101 I hold back my feet from every evil way, in order to keep thy word.

102 I do not turn aside from thy ordinances, for thou hast taught me.

103 How sweet are thy words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!

104 Through thy precepts I get understanding; therefore I hate every false way.

105 Thy word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.

106 I have sworn an oath and confirmed it, to observe thy righteous ordinances.

107 I am sorely afflicted; give me life, O LORD, according to thy word!

108 Accept my offerings of praise, O LORD, and teach me thy ordinances.

109 I hold my life in my hand continually, but I do not forget thy law.

110 The wicked have laid a snare for me, but I do not stray from thy precepts.

111 Thy testimonies are my heritage for ever; yea, they are the joy of my heart.

112 I incline my heart to perform thy statutes for ever, to the end.

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

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

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

116 Uphold me according to thy promise, that I may live, and let me not be put to shame in my hope!

117 Hold me up, that I may be safe and have regard for thy statutes continually!

118 Thou dost spurn all who go astray from thy statutes; yea, their cunning is in vain.

119 All the wicked of the earth thou dost count as dross; therefore I love thy testimonies.

120 My flesh trembles for fear of thee, and I am afraid of thy judgments.

121 I have done what is just and right; do not leave me to my oppressors.

122 Be surety for thy servant for good; let not the godless oppress me.

123 My eyes fail with watching for thy salvation, and for the fulfilment of thy righteous promise.

124 Deal with thy servant according to thy steadfast love, and teach me thy statutes.

125 I am thy servant; give me understanding, that I may know thy testimonies!

126 It is time for the LORD to act, for thy law has been broken.

127 Therefore I love thy commandments above gold, above fine gold.

129 Thy testimonies are wonderful; therefore my soul keeps them.

130 The unfolding of thy words gives light; it imparts understanding to the simple.

131 With open mouth I pant, because I long for thy commandments.

132 Turn to me and be gracious to me, as is thy wont toward those who love thy name.

134 Redeem me from man's oppression, that I may keep thy precepts.

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

137 Righteous art thou, O LORD, and right are thy judgments.

138 Thou hast appointed thy testimonies in righteousness and in all faithfulness.

139 My zeal consumes me, because my foes forget thy words.

140 Thy promise is well tried, and thy servant loves it.

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

142 Thy righteousness is righteous for ever, and thy law is true.

143 Trouble and anguish have come upon me, but thy commandments are my delight.

147 I rise before dawn and cry for help; I hope in thy words.

148 My eyes are awake before the watches of the night, that I may meditate upon thy promise.

149 Hear my voice in thy steadfast love; O LORD, in thy justice preserve my life.

150 They draw near who persecute me with evil purpose; they are far from thy law.

151 But thou art near, O LORD, and all thy commandments are true.

152 Long have I known from thy testimonies that thou hast founded them for ever.

153 Look on my affliction and deliver me, for I do not forget thy law.

154 Plead my cause and redeem me; give me life according to thy promise!

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

156 Great is thy mercy, O LORD; give me life according to thy justice.

157 Many are my persecutors and my adversaries, but I do not swerve from thy testimonies.

158 I look at the faithless with disgust, because they do not keep thy commands.

159 Consider how I love thy precepts! Preserve my life according to thy steadfast love.

160 The sum of thy word is truth; and every one of thy righteous ordinances endures for ever.

161 Princes persecute me without cause, but my heart stands in awe of thy words.

162 I rejoice at thy word like one who finds great spoil.

163 I hate and abhor falsehood, but I love thy law.

164 Seven times a day I praise thee for thy righteous ordinances.

165 Great peace have those who love thy law; nothing can make them stumble.

166 I hope for thy salvation, O LORD, and I do thy commandments.

167 My soul keeps thy testimonies; I love them exceedingly.

168 I keep thy precepts and testimonies, for all my ways are before thee.

169 Let my cry come before thee, O LORD; give me understanding according to thy word!

170 Let my supplication come before thee; deliver me according to thy word.

171 My lips will pour forth praise that thou dost teach me thy statutes.

172 My tongue will sing of thy word, for all thy commandments are right.

173 Let thy hand be ready to help me, for I have chosen thy precepts.

174 I long for thy salvation, O LORD, and thy law is my delight.

175 Let me live, that I may praise thee, and let thy ordinances help me.

50 Este es mi consuelo en la aflicción: que tu palabra me ha vivificado.

51 Los soberbios me insultaron en gran manera, sin embargo, no me he apartado de tu ley.

52 Me acuerdo de tus ordenanzas antiguas, oh SENOR, y me consuelo.

53 Profunda indignación se ha apoderado de mí por causa de los impíos que abandonan tu ley.

54 Cánticos para mí son tus estatutos en la casa de mi peregrinación.

55 Por la noche me acuerdo de tu nombre, oh SENOR, y guardo tu ley.

56 Esto se ha hecho parte de mí: guardar tus preceptos.

57 El SENOR es mi porción; he prometido guardar tus palabras.

58 Supliqué tu favor con todo mi corazón; ten piedad de mí conforme a tu promesa.

72 Mejor es para mí la ley de tu boca que millares de piezas de oro y de plata.

73 Tus manos me hicieron y me formaron; dame entendimiento para que aprenda tus mandamientos.

74 Que los que te temen, me vean y se alegren, porque espero en tu palabra.

75 Yo sé, SENOR, que tus juicios son justos, y que en tu fidelidad me has afligido.

76 Sea ahora tu misericordia para consuelo mío, conforme a tu promesa dada a tu siervo.

77 Venga a mí tu compasión, para que viva, porque tu ley es mi deleite.

78 Sean avergonzados los soberbios, porque me agravian con mentira; pero yo en tus preceptos meditaré.

79 Vuélvanse a mí los que te temen y conocen tus testimonios.

80 Sea íntegro mi corazón en tus estatutos, para que no sea yo avergonzado.

81 Mi alma desfallece por tu salvación; en tu palabra espero.

82 Mis ojos desfallecen esperando tu palabra, mientras digo: ¿Cuándo me consolarás?

83 Aunque he llegado a ser como odre al humo, no me olvido de tus estatutos.

84 ¿Cuántos son los días de tu siervo? ¿Cuándo harás juicio contra mis perseguidores?

85 Fosas me han cavado los soberbios, los que no están de acuerdo con tu ley.

86 Todos tus mandamientos son fieles; con mentira me han perseguido; ¡ay?dame!

87 Casi me destruyen en la tierra, mas yo no abandoné tus preceptos.

88 Vivifícame conforme a tu misericordia, para que guarde el testimonio de tu boca.

89 Para siempre, oh SENOR, tu palabra está firme en los cielos.

90 Tu fidelidad permanece por todas las generaciones; tú estableciste la tierra, y ella permanece.

91 Por tus ordenanzas permanecen hasta hoy, pues todas las cosas te sirven.

92 Si tu ley no hubiera sido mi deleite, entonces habría perecido en mi aflicción.

93 Jamás me olvidaré de tus preceptos, porque por ellos me has vivificado.

94 Tuyo soy, Senor, sálvame, pues tus preceptos he buscado.

95 Los impíos me esperan para destruirme; tus testimonios consideraré.

96 He visto un límite a toda perfección; tu mandamiento es sumamente amplio.

97 ¡Cuánto amo tu ley! Todo el día es ella mi meditación.

98 Tus mandamientos me hacen más sabio que mis enemigos, porque son míos para siempre.

99 Tengo más discernimiento que todos mis maestros, porque tus testimonios son mi meditación.

100 Entiendo más que los ancianos, porque tus preceptos he guardado.

101 De todo mal camino he refrenado mis pies, para guardar tu palabra.

102 No me he desviado de tus ordenanzas, porque tú me has ensenado.

103 ¡Cuán dulces son a mi paladar tus palabras!, más que la miel a mi boca.

104 De tus preceptos recibo entendimiento, por tanto aborrezco todo camino de mentira.

105 Lámpara es a mis pies tu palabra, y luz para mi camino.

106 He jurado, y lo confirmaré, que guardaré tus justas ordenanzas.

107 Estoy profundamente afligido; SENOR, vivifícame conforme a tu palabra.

108 Te ruego aceptes las ofrendas voluntarias de mi boca, oh SENOR, y enséname tus ordenanzas.

109 En peligro continuo está mi vida, con todo, no me olvido de tu ley.

110 Los impíos me han tendido lazo, pero no me he desviado de tus preceptos.

111 Tus testimonios he tomado como herencia para siempre, porque son el gozo de mi corazón.

112 He inclinado mi corazón para cumplir tus estatutos por siempre, y hasta el fin.

113 Aborrezco a los hipócritas, empero amo tu ley.

114 T? eres mi escondedero y mi escudo; en tu palabra espero.

115 Apartaos de mí, malhechores, para que guarde yo los mandamientos de mi Dios.

116 Sostenme conforme a tu promesa, para que viva, y no dejes que me averg¸ence de mi esperanza.

117 Sostenme, para estar seguro, y que continuamente preste atención a tus estatutos.

118 Has rechazado a todos los que se desvían de tus estatutos, porque su engano es en vano.

119 Como escoria has quitado de la tierra a todos los impíos, por tanto amo tus testimonios.

120 Mi carne se estremece por temor a ti, y de tus juicios tengo miedo.

121 He practicado el juicio y la justicia; no me abandones a mis opresores.

122 Sé fiador de tu siervo para bien; que no me opriman los soberbios.

123 Desfallecen mis ojos por tu salvación, y por la promesa de tu justicia.

124 Haz con tu siervo seg?n tu misericordia, y enséname tus estatutos.

125 Yo soy tu siervo, dame entendimiento para que conozca tus testimonios.

126 Es tiempo de que act?e el SENOR, porque han quebrantado tu ley.

127 Por tanto, amo tus mandamientos más que el oro, sí, más que el oro fino.

128 Por tanto, estimo rectos todos tus preceptos acerca de todas las cosas, y aborrezco todo camino de mentira.

129 Maravillosos son tus testimonios, por lo que los guarda mi alma.

130 La exposición de tus palabras imparte luz; da entendimiento a los sencillos.

131 Abrí mi boca y suspiré, porque anhelaba tus mandamientos.

132 Vuélvete a mí y tenme piedad, como acostumbras con los que aman tu nombre.

133 Afirma mis pasos en tu palabra, y que ninguna iniquidad me domine.

134 Rescátame de la opresión del hombre, para que yo guarde tus preceptos.

135 Haz resplandecer tu rostro sobre tu siervo, y enséname tus estatutos.

136 Ríos de lágrimas vierten mis ojos, porque ellos no guardan tu ley.

137 Justo eres t?, SENOR, y rectos tus juicios.

138 Has ordenado tus testimonios con justicia, y con suma fidelidad.

139 Mi celo me ha consumido, porque mis adversarios han olvidado tus palabras.

140 Es muy pura tu palabra, y tu siervo la ama.

141 Pequeno soy, y despreciado, mas no me olvido de tus preceptos.

142 Tu justicia es justicia eterna, y tu ley verdad.

143 Angustia y aflicción han venido sobre mí, mas tus mandamientos son mi deleite.

144 Tus testimonios son justos para siempre; dame entendimiento para que yo viva.

145 He clamado con todo mi corazón; ¡respóndeme, SENOR! Guardaré tus estatutos.

146 A ti clamé; sálvame, y guardaré tus testimonios.

147 Me anticipo al alba y clamo; en tus palabras espero.

148 Mis ojos se anticipan a las vigilias de la noche, para meditar en tu palabra.

149 Oye mi voz conforme a tu misericordia; vivifícame, oh SENOR, conforme a tus ordenanzas.

150 Se me acercan los que siguen la maldad; lejos están de tu ley.

151 T? estás cerca, SENOR, y todos tus mandamientos son verdad.

152 Desde hace tiempo he sabido de tus testimonios, que para siempre los has fundado.

153 Mira mi aflicción y líbrame, porque no me olvido de tu ley.

154 Defiende mi causa y redímeme; vivifícame conforme a tu palabra.

155 Lejos está de los impíos la salvación, porque no buscan tus estatutos.

156 Muchas son, oh SENOR, tus misericordias; vivifícame conforme a tus ordenanzas.

157 Muchos son mis perseguidores y mis adversarios, pero yo no me aparto de tus testimonios.

158 Veo a los pérfidos y me repugnan, porque no guardan tu palabra.

159 Mira cuánto amo tus preceptos; vivifícame, SENOR, conforme a tu misericordia.

160 La suma de tu palabra es verdad, y cada una de tus justas ordenanzas es eterna.

161 Príncipes me persiguen sin causa, pero mi corazón teme tus palabras.

162 Me regocijo en tu palabra, como quien halla un gran botín.

163 Aborrezco y desprecio la mentira, pero amo tu ley.

164 Siete veces al día te alabo, a causa de tus justas ordenanzas.

165 Mucha paz tienen los que aman tu ley, y nada los hace tropezar.

166 Espero tu salvación, SENOR, y cumplo tus mandamientos.

167 Mi alma guarda tus testimonios, y en gran manera los amo.

168 Guardo tus preceptos y tus testimonios, porque todos mis caminos están delante de ti.

169 Llegue mi clamor ante ti, SENOR; conforme a tu palabra dame entendimiento.

170 Llegue mi s?plica delante de ti; líbrame conforme a tu palabra.

171 Profieran mis labios alabanzas, pues tú me ensenas tus estatutos.

172 Que cante mi lengua de tu palabra, porque todos tus mandamientos son justicia.

173 Pronta esté tu mano a socorrerme, porque tus preceptos he escogido.

174 Anhelo tu salvación, SENOR, y tu ley es mi deleite.

175 Viva mi alma para alabarte, y que tus ordenanzas me ayuden.

176 Me he descarriado como oveja perdida; busca a tu siervo, porque no me olvido de tus mandamientos.
