Psalm 119:25-48

Daleth

25My soul clings to the dust;

give me life according to your word!

26When I told of my ways, you answered me;

teach me your statutes!

27Make me understand the way of your precepts,

and I will meditate on your wondrous works.

28My soul melts away for sorrow;

strengthen me according to your word!

29Put false ways far from me

and graciously teach me your law!

30I have chosen the way of faithfulness;

I set your rules before me.

31I cling to your testimonies, O Lord;

let me not be put to shame!

32I will run in the way of your commandments

when you enlarge my heart!5

He

33Teach me, O Lord, the way of your statutes;

and I will keep it to the end.6

34Give me understanding, that I may keep your law

and observe it with my whole heart.

35Lead me in the path of your commandments,

for I delight in it.

36Incline my heart to your testimonies,

and not to selfish gain!

37Turn my eyes from looking at worthless things;

and give me life in your ways.

38Confirm to your servant your promise,

that you may be feared.

39Turn away the reproach that I dread,

for your rules are good.

40Behold, I long for your precepts;

in your righteousness give me life!

Waw

41Let your steadfast love come to me, O Lord,

your salvation according to your promise;

42then shall I have an answer for him who taunts me,

for I trust in your word.

43And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth,

for my hope is in your rules.

44I will keep your law continually,

forever and ever,

45and I shall walk in a wide place,

for I have sought your precepts.

46I will also speak of your testimonies before kings

and shall not be put to shame,

47for I find my delight in your commandments,

which I love.

48I will lift up my hands toward your commandments, which I love,

and I will meditate on your statutes.
