[89] Yahweh, your word is settled in heaven forever.

Psalm 119 (KJVS)

[1] ALEPH. Blessed H835 [are] the undefiled H8549 in the way H1870, who walk H1980 (8802) in the law H8451 of the LORD H3068.
[2] Blessed H835 [are] they that keep H5341 (8802) his testimonies H5713, [and that] seek H1875 (8799) him with the whole heart H3820.
[3] They also do H6466 (8804) no iniquity H5766: they walk H1980 (8804) in his ways H1870.
[4] Thou hast commanded H6680 (8765) [us] to keep H8104 (8800) thy precepts H6490 diligently H3966.
[5] O that H305 my ways H1870 were directed H3559 (8735) to keep H8104 (8800) thy statutes H2706!
[6] Then shall I not be ashamed H954 (8799), when I have respect H5027 (8687) unto all thy commandments H4687.
[7] I will praise H3034 (8686) thee with uprightness H3476 of heart H3824, when I shall have learned H3925 (8800) thy righteous H6664 judgments H4941.
[8] I will keep H8104 (8799) thy statutes H2706: O forsake H5800 (8799) me not utterly H3966.
[9] BETH. Wherewithal shall a young man H5288 cleanse H2135 (8762) his way H734? by taking heed H8104 (8800) [thereto] according to thy word H1697.
[10] With my whole heart H3820 have I sought H1875 (8804) thee: O let me not wander H7686 (8686) from thy commandments H4687.
[11] Thy word H565 have I hid H6845 (8804) in mine heart H3820, that I might not sin H2398 (8799) against thee.
[12] Blessed H1288 (8803) [art] thou, O LORD H3068: teach H3925 (8761) me thy statutes H2706.
[13] With my lips H8193 have I declared H5608 (8765) all the judgments H4941 of thy mouth H6310.
[14] I have rejoiced H7797 (8804) in the way H1870 of thy testimonies H5715, as [much as] in H5921 all riches H1952.
[15] I will meditate H7878 (8799) in thy precepts H6490, and have respect H5027 (8686) unto thy ways H734.
[16] I will delight H8173 (8698) myself in thy statutes H2708: I will not forget H7911 (8799) thy word H1697.
[17] GIMEL. Deal bountifully H1580 (8798) with thy servant H5650, [that] I may live H2421 (8799), and keep H8104 (8799) thy word H1697.
[18] Open H1540 (8761) thou mine eyes H5869, that I may behold H5027 (8686) wondrous things H6381 (8737) out of thy law H8451.
[19] I [am] a stranger H1616 in the earth H776: hide H5641 (8686) not thy commandments H4687 from me.
[20] My soul H5315 breaketh H1638 (8804) for the longing H8375 [that it hath] unto thy judgments H4941 at all times H6256.
[21] Thou hast rebuked H1605 (8804) the proud H2086 [that are] cursed H779 (8803), which do err H7686 (8802) from thy commandments H4687.
[22] Remove H1556 (8798) from me reproach H2781 and contempt H937; for I have kept H5341 (8804) thy testimonies H5713.
[23] Princes H8269 also did sit H3427 (8804) [and] speak H1696 (8738) against me: [but] thy servant H5650 did meditate H7878 (8799) in thy statutes H2706.
[24] Thy testimonies H5713 also [are] my delight H8191 [and] my counsellors H582 H6098.
[25] DALETH. My soul H5315 cleaveth H1692 (8804) unto the dust H6083: quicken H2421 (8761) thou me according to thy word H1697.
[26] I have declared H5608 (8765) my ways H1870, and thou heardest H6030 (8799) me: teach H3925 (8761) me thy statutes H2706.
[27] Make me to understand H995 (8685) the way H1870 of thy precepts H6490: so shall I talk H7878 (8799) of thy wondrous works H6381 (8737).
[28] My soul H5315 melteth H1811 (8804) for heaviness H8424: strengthen H6965 (8761) thou me according unto thy word H1697.
[29] Remove H5493 (8685) from me the way H1870 of lying H8267: and grant me thy law H8451 graciously H2603 (8798).
[30] I have chosen H977 (8804) the way H1870 of truth H530: thy judgments H4941 have I laid H7737 (8765) [before me].
[31] I have stuck H1692 (8804) unto thy testimonies H5715: O LORD H3068, put me not to shame H954 (8686).
[32] I will run H7323 (8799) the way H1870 of thy commandments H4687, when thou shalt enlarge H7337 (8686) my heart H3820.
[33] HE. Teach H3384 (8685) me, O LORD H3068, the way H1870 of thy statutes H2706; and I shall keep H5341 (8799) it [unto] the end H6118.
[34] Give me understanding H995 (8685), and I shall keep H5341 (8799) thy law H8451; yea, I shall observe H8104 (8799) it with [my] whole heart H3820.
[35] Make me to go H1869 (8685) in the path H5410 of thy commandments H4687; for therein do I delight H2654 (8804).
[36] Incline H5186 (8685) my heart H3820 unto thy testimonies H5715, and not to covetousness H1215.
[37] Turn away H5674 (8685) mine eyes H5869 from beholding H7200 (8800) vanity H7723; [and] quicken H2421 (8761) thou me in thy way H1870.
[38] Stablish H6965 (8685) thy word H565 unto thy servant H5650, who [is devoted] to thy fear H3374.
[39] Turn away H5674 (8685) my reproach H2781 which I fear H3025 (8804): for thy judgments H4941 [are] good H2896.
[40] Behold, I have longed H8373 (8804) after thy precepts H6490: quicken H2421 (8761) me in thy righteousness H6666.
[41] VAU. Let thy mercies H2617 come H935 (8799) also unto me, O LORD H3068, [even] thy salvation H8668, according to thy word H565.
[42] So shall I have wherewith H1697 to answer H6030 (8799) him that reproacheth H2778 (8802) me: for I trust H982 (8804) in thy word H1697.
[43] And take H5337 (8686) not the word H1697 of truth H571 utterly H3966 out of my mouth H6310; for I have hoped H3176 (8765) in thy judgments H4941.
[44] So shall I keep H8104 (8799) thy law H8451 continually H8548 for ever H5769 and ever H5703.
[45] And I will walk H1980 (8691) at liberty H7342: for I seek H1875 (8804) thy precepts H6490.
[46] I will speak H1696 (8762) of thy testimonies H5713 also before kings H4428, and will not be ashamed H954 (8799).
[47] And I will delight H8173 (8698) myself in thy commandments H4687, which I have loved H157 (8804).
[48] My hands H3709 also will I lift up H5375 (8799) unto thy commandments H4687, which I have loved H157 (8804); and I will meditate H7878 (8799) in thy statutes H2706.
[49] ZAIN. Remember H2142 (8798) the word H1697 unto thy servant H5650, upon which thou hast caused me to hope H3176 (8765).
[50] This [is] my comfort H5165 in my affliction H6040: for thy word H565 hath quickened H2421 (8765) me.
[51] The proud H2086 have had me greatly H3966 in derision H3887 (8689): [yet] have I not declined H5186 (8804) from thy law H8451.
[52] I remembered H2142 (8804) thy judgments H4941 of old H5769, O LORD H3068; and have comforted H5162 (8691) myself.
[53] Horror H2152 hath taken hold H270 (8804) upon me because of the wicked H7563 that forsake H5800 (8802) thy law H8451.
[54] Thy statutes H2706 have been my songs H2158 in the house H1004 of my pilgrimage H4033.
[55] I have remembered H2142 (8804) thy name H8034, O LORD H3068, in the night H3915, and have kept H8104 (8799) thy law H8451.
[56] This I had, because I kept H5341 (8804) thy precepts H6490.
[57] CHETH. [Thou art] my portion H2506, O LORD H3068: I have said H559 (8804) that I would keep H8104 (8800) thy words H1697.
[58] I intreated H2470 (8765) thy favour H6440 with [my] whole heart H3820: be merciful H2603 (8798) unto me according to thy word H565.
[59] I thought H2803 (8765) on my ways H1870, and turned H7725 (8686) my feet H7272 unto thy testimonies H5713.
[60] I made haste H2363 (8804), and delayed H4102 (8701) not to keep H8104 (8800) thy commandments H4687.
[61] The bands H2256 of the wicked H7563 have robbed H5749 (8765) me: [but] I have not forgotten H7911 (8804) thy law H8451.
[62] At midnight H2676 H3915 I will rise H6965 (8799) to give thanks H3034 (8687) unto thee because of thy righteous H6664 judgments H4941.
[63] I [am] a companion H2270 of all [them] that fear H3372 (8804) thee, and of them that keep H8104 (8802) thy precepts H6490.
[64] The earth H776, O LORD H3068, is full H4390 (8804) of thy mercy H2617: teach H3925 (8761) me thy statutes H2706.
[65] TETH. Thou hast dealt H6213 (8804) well H2896 with thy servant H5650, O LORD H3068, according unto thy word H1697.
[66] Teach H3925 (8761) me good H2898 judgment H2940 and knowledge H1847: for I have believed H539 (8689) thy commandments H4687.
[67] Before I was afflicted H6031 (8799) I went astray H7683 (8802): but now have I kept H8104 (8804) thy word H565.
[68] Thou [art] good H2896, and doest good H2895 (8688); teach H3925 (8761) me thy statutes H2706.
[69] The proud H2086 have forged H2950 (8804) a lie H8267 against me: [but] I will keep H5341 (8799) thy precepts H6490 with [my] whole heart H3820.
[70] Their heart H3820 is as fat H2954 (8804) as grease H2459; [but] I delight H8173 (8773) in thy law H8451.
[71] [It is] good H2896 for me that I have been afflicted H6031 (8795); that I might learn H3925 (8799) thy statutes H2706.
[72] The law H8451 of thy mouth H6310 [is] better H2896 unto me than thousands H505 of gold H2091 and silver H3701.
[73] JOD. Thy hands H3027 have made H6213 (8804) me and fashioned H3559 (8787) me: give me understanding H995 (8685), that I may learn H3925 (8799) thy commandments H4687.
[74] They that fear H3373 thee will be glad H8055 (8799) when they see H7200 (8799) me; because I have hoped H3176 (8765) in thy word H1697.
[75] I know H3045 (8804), O LORD H3068, that thy judgments H4941 [are] right H6664, and [that] thou in faithfulness H530 hast afflicted H6031 (8765) me.
[76] Let, I pray thee, thy merciful kindness H2617 be for my comfort H5162 (8763), according to thy word H565 unto thy servant H5650.
[77] Let thy tender mercies H7356 come H935 (8799) unto me, that I may live H2421 (8799): for thy law H8451 [is] my delight H8191.
[78] Let the proud H2086 be ashamed H954 (8799); for they dealt perversely H5791 (8765) with me without a cause H8267: [but] I will meditate H7878 (8799) in thy precepts H6490.
[79] Let those that fear H3373 thee turn H7725 (8799) unto me, and those that have known H3045 (8802) (8675) H3045 (8804) thy testimonies H5713.
[80] Let my heart H3820 be sound H8549 in thy statutes H2706; that I be not ashamed H954 (8799).
[81] CAPH. My soul H5315 fainteth H3615 (8804) for thy salvation H8668: [but] I hope H3176 (8765) in thy word H1697.
[82] Mine eyes H5869 fail H3615 (8804) for thy word H565, saying H559 (8800), When wilt thou comfort H5162 (8762) me?
[83] For I am become like a bottle H4997 in the smoke H7008; [yet] do I not forget H7911 (8804) thy statutes H2706.
[84] How many [are] the days H3117 of thy servant H5650? when wilt thou execute H6213 (8799) judgment H4941 on them that persecute H7291 (8802) me?
[85] The proud H2086 have digged H3738 (8804) pits H7882 for me, which [are] not after thy law H8451.
[86] All thy commandments H4687 [are] faithful H530: they persecute H7291 (8804) me wrongfully H8267; help H5826 (8798) thou me.
[87] They had almost H4592 consumed H3615 (8765) me upon earth H776; but I forsook H5800 (8804) not thy precepts H6490.
[88] Quicken H2421 (8761) me after thy lovingkindness H2617; so shall I keep H8104 (8799) the testimony H5715 of thy mouth H6310.
[89] LAMED. For ever H5769, O LORD H3068, thy word H1697 is settled H5324 (8737) in heaven H8064.
[90] Thy faithfulness H530 [is] unto all H1755 generations H1755: thou hast established H3559 (8790) the earth H776, and it abideth H5975 (8799).
[91] They continue H5975 (8804) this day H3117 according to thine ordinances H4941: for all [are] thy servants H5650.
[92] Unless H3884 thy law H8451 [had been] my delights H8191, I should then have perished H6 (8804) in mine affliction H6040.
[93] I will never H5769 forget H7911 (8799) thy precepts H6490: for with them thou hast quickened H2421 (8765) me.
[94] I [am] thine, save H3467 (8685) me; for I have sought H1875 (8804) thy precepts H6490.
[95] The wicked H7563 have waited H6960 (8765) for me to destroy H6 (8763) me: [but] I will consider H995 (8709) thy testimonies H5713.
[96] I have seen H7200 (8804) an end H7093 of all perfection H8502: [but] thy commandment H4687 [is] exceeding H3966 broad H7342.
[97] MEM. O how love I H157 (8804) thy law H8451! it [is] my meditation H7881 all the day H3117.
[98] Thou through thy commandments H4687 hast made me wiser H2449 (8762) than mine enemies H341 (8802): for they [are] ever H5769 with me.
[99] I have more understanding H7919 (8689) than all my teachers H3925 (8764): for thy testimonies H5715 [are] my meditation H7881.
[100] I understand H995 (8709) more than the ancients H2205, because I keep H5341 (8804) thy precepts H6490.
[101] I have refrained H3607 (8804) my feet H7272 from every evil H7451 way H734, that I might keep H8104 (8799) thy word H1697.
[102] I have not departed H5493 (8804) from thy judgments H4941: for thou hast taught H3384 (8689) me.
[103] How sweet H4452 (8738) are thy words H565 unto my taste H2441! [yea, sweeter] than honey H1706 to my mouth H6310!
[104] Through thy precepts H6490 I get understanding H995 (8709): therefore I hate H8130 (8804) every false H8267 way H734.
[105] NUN. Thy word H1697 [is] a lamp H5216 unto my feet H7272, and a light H216 unto my path H5410.
[106] I have sworn H7650 (8738), and I will perform H6965 (8762) [it], that I will keep H8104 (8800) thy righteous H6664 judgments H4941.
[107] I am afflicted H6031 (8738) very much H3966: quicken H2421 (8761) me, O LORD H3068, according unto thy word H1697.
[108] Accept H7521 (8798), I beseech thee, the freewill offerings H5071 of my mouth H6310, O LORD H3068, and teach H3925 (8761) me thy judgments H4941.
[109] My soul H5315 [is] continually H8548 in my hand H3709: yet do I not forget H7911 (8804) thy law H8451.
[110] The wicked H7563 have laid H5414 (8804) a snare H6341 for me: yet I erred H8582 (8804) not from thy precepts H6490.
[111] Thy testimonies H5715 have I taken as an heritage H5157 (8804) for ever H5769: for they [are] the rejoicing H8342 of my heart H3820.
[112] I have inclined H5186 (8804) mine heart H3820 to perform H6213 (8800) thy statutes H2706 alway H5769, [even unto] the end H6118.
[113] SAMECH. I hate H8130 (8804) [vain] thoughts H5588: but thy law H8451 do I love H157 (8804).
[114] Thou [art] my hiding place H5643 and my shield H4043: I hope H3176 (8765) in thy word H1697.
[115] Depart H5493 (8798) from me, ye evildoers H7489 (8688): for I will keep H5341 (8799) the commandments H4687 of my God H430.
[116] Uphold H5564 (8798) me according unto thy word H565, that I may live H2421 (8799): and let me not be ashamed H954 (8686) of my hope H7664.
[117] Hold thou me up H5582 (8798), and I shall be safe H3467 (8735): and I will have respect H8159 (8799) unto thy statutes H2706 continually H8548.
[118] Thou hast trodden down H5541 (8804) all them that err H7686 (8802) from thy statutes H2706: for their deceit H8649 [is] falsehood H8267.
[119] Thou puttest away H7673 (8689) all the wicked H7563 of the earth H776 [like] dross H5509: therefore I love H157 (8804) thy testimonies H5713.
[120] My flesh H1320 trembleth H5568 (8804) for fear H6343 of thee; and I am afraid H3372 (8804) of thy judgments H4941.
[121] AIN. I have done H6213 (8804) judgment H4941 and justice H6664: leave H3240 (8686) me not to mine oppressors H6231 (8802).
[122] Be surety H6148 (8798) for thy servant H5650 for good H2896: let not the proud H2086 oppress H6231 (8799) me.
[123] Mine eyes H5869 fail H3615 (8804) for thy salvation H3444, and for the word H565 of thy righteousness H6664.
[124] Deal H6213 (8798) with thy servant H5650 according unto thy mercy H2617, and teach H3925 (8761) me thy statutes H2706.
[125] I [am] thy servant H5650; give me understanding H995 (8685), that I may know H3045 (8799) thy testimonies H5713.
[126] [It is] time H6256 for [thee], LORD H3068, to work H6213 (8800): [for] they have made void H6565 (8689) thy law H8451.
[127] Therefore I love H157 (8804) thy commandments H4687 above gold H2091; yea, above fine gold H6337.
[128] Therefore I esteem all [thy] precepts H6490 [concerning] all [things to be] right H3474 (8765); [and] I hate H8130 (8804) every false H8267 way H734.
[129] PE. Thy testimonies H5715 [are] wonderful H6382: therefore doth my soul H5315 keep H5341 (8804) them.
[130] The entrance H6608 of thy words H1697 giveth light H215 (8686); it giveth understanding H995 (8688) unto the simple H6612.
[131] I opened H6473 (8804) my mouth H6310, and panted H7602 (8799): for I longed H2968 (8804) for thy commandments H4687.
[132] Look H6437 (8798) thou upon me, and be merciful H2603 (8798) unto me, as thou usest H4941 to do unto those that love H157 (8802) thy name H8034.
[133] Order H3559 (8685) my steps H6471 in thy word H565: and let not any iniquity H205 have dominion H7980 (8686) over me.
[134] Deliver H6299 (8798) me from the oppression H6233 of man H120: so will I keep H8104 (8799) thy precepts H6490.
[135] Make thy face H6440 to shine H215 (8685) upon thy servant H5650; and teach H3925 (8761) me thy statutes H2706.
[136] Rivers H6388 of waters H4325 run down H3381 (8804) mine eyes H5869, because they keep H8104 (8804) not thy law H8451.
[137] TZADDI. Righteous H6662 [art] thou, O LORD H3068, and upright H3477 [are] thy judgments H4941.
[138] Thy testimonies H5713 [that] thou hast commanded H6680 (8765) [are] righteous H6664 and very H3966 faithful H530.
[139] My zeal H7068 hath consumed H6789 (8765) me, because mine enemies H6862 have forgotten H7911 (8804) thy words H1697.
[140] Thy word H565 [is] very H3966 pure H6884 (8803): therefore thy servant H5650 loveth H157 (8804) it.
[141] I [am] small H6810 and despised H959 (8737): [yet] do not I forget H7911 (8804) thy precepts H6490.
[142] Thy righteousness H6666 [is] an everlasting H5769 righteousness H6664, and thy law H8451 [is] the truth H571.
[143] Trouble H6862 and anguish H4689 have taken hold H4672 (8804) on me: [yet] thy commandments H4687 [are] my delights H8191.
[144] The righteousness H6664 of thy testimonies H5715 [is] everlasting H5769: give me understanding H995 (8685), and I shall live H2421 (8799).
[145] KOPH. I cried H7121 (8804) with [my] whole heart H3820; hear H6030 (8798) me, O LORD H3068: I will keep H5341 (8799) thy statutes H2706.
[146] I cried H7121 (8804) unto thee; save H3467 (8685) me, and I shall keep H8104 (8799) thy testimonies H5713.
[147] I prevented H6923 (8765) the dawning of the morning H5399, and cried H7768 (8762): I hoped H3176 (8765) in thy word H1697.
[148] Mine eyes H5869 prevent H6923 (8765) the [night] watches H821, that I might meditate H7878 (8800) in thy word H565.
[149] Hear H8085 (8798) my voice H6963 according unto thy lovingkindness H2617: O LORD H3068, quicken H2421 (8761) me according to thy judgment H4941.
[150] They draw nigh H7126 (8804) that follow H7291 (8802) after mischief H2154: they are far H7368 (8804) from thy law H8451.
[151] Thou [art] near H7138, O LORD H3068; and all thy commandments H4687 [are] truth H571.
[152] Concerning thy testimonies H5713, I have known H3045 (8804) of old H6924 that thou hast founded H3245 (8804) them for ever H5769.
[153] RESH. Consider H7200 (8798) mine affliction H6040, and deliver H2502 (8761) me: for I do not forget H7911 (8804) thy law H8451.
[154] Plead H7378 (8798) my cause H7379, and deliver H1350 (8798) me: quicken H2421 (8761) me according to thy word H565.
[155] Salvation H3444 [is] far H7350 from the wicked H7563: for they seek H1875 (8804) not thy statutes H2706.
[156] Great H7227 [are] thy tender mercies H7356, O LORD H3068: quicken H2421 (8761) me according to thy judgments H4941.
[157] Many H7227 [are] my persecutors H7291 (8802) and mine enemies H6862; [yet] do I not decline H5186 (8804) from thy testimonies H5715.
[158] I beheld H7200 (8804) the transgressors H898 (8802), and was grieved H6962 (8709); because they kept H8104 (8804) not thy word H565.
[159] Consider H7200 (8798) how I love H157 (8804) thy precepts H6490: quicken H2421 (8761) me, O LORD H3068, according to thy lovingkindness H2617.
[160] Thy word H1697 [is] true H571 [from] the beginning H7218: and every one of thy righteous H6664 judgments H4941 [endureth] for ever H5769.
[161] SCHIN. Princes H8269 have persecuted H7291 (8804) me without a cause H2600: but my heart H3820 standeth in awe H6342 (8804) of thy word H1697.
[162] I rejoice H7797 (8801) at thy word H565, as one that findeth H4672 (8802) great H7227 spoil H7998.
[163] I hate H8130 (8804) and abhor H8581 (8762) lying H8267: [but] thy law H8451 do I love H157 (8804).
[164] Seven times H7651 a day H3117 do I praise H1984 (8765) thee because of thy righteous H6664 judgments H4941.
[165] Great H7227 peace H7965 have they which love H157 (8802) thy law H8451: and nothing shall offend H4383 them.
[166] LORD H3068, I have hoped H7663 (8765) for thy salvation H3444, and done H6213 (8804) thy commandments H4687.
[167] My soul H5315 hath kept H8104 (8804) thy testimonies H5713; and I love H157 (8799) them exceedingly H3966.
[168] I have kept H8104 (8804) thy precepts H6490 and thy testimonies H5713: for all my ways H1870 [are] before thee.
[169] TAU. Let my cry H7440 come near H7126 (8799) before H6440 thee, O LORD H3068: give me understanding H995 (8685) according to thy word H1697.
[170] Let my supplication H8467 come H935 (8799) before H6440 thee: deliver H5337 (8685) me according to thy word H565.
[171] My lips H8193 shall utter H5042 (8686) praise H8416, when thou hast taught H3925 (8762) me thy statutes H2706.
[172] My tongue H3956 shall speak H6030 (8799) of thy word H565: for all thy commandments H4687 [are] righteousness H6664.
[173] Let thine hand H3027 help H5826 (8800) me; for I have chosen H977 (8804) thy precepts H6490.
[174] I have longed H8373 (8804) for thy salvation H3444, O LORD H3068; and thy law H8451 [is] my delight H8191.
[175] Let my soul H5315 live H2421 (8799), and it shall praise H1984 (8762) thee; and let thy judgments H4941 help H5826 (8799) me.
[176] I have gone astray H8582 (8804) like a lost H6 (8802) sheep H7716; seek H1245 (8761) thy servant H5650; for I do not forget H7911 (8804) thy commandments H4687.
