View Full Chapter

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

114You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in your word.

115Away from me, you evildoers, that I may keep the commands of my God!

116Sustain me, my God, according to your promise, and I will live; do not let my hopes be dashed.

117Uphold me, and I will be delivered; I will always have regard for your decrees.

118You reject all who stray from your decrees, for their delusions come to nothing.

119All the wicked of the earth you discard like dross; therefore I love your statutes.

120My flesh trembles in fear of you; I stand in awe of your laws. ע Ayin

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

122Ensure your servant’s well-being; do not let the arrogant oppress me.

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

124Deal with your servant according to your love and teach me your decrees.

125I am your servant; give me discernment that I may understand your statutes.

126It is time for you to act, LORD ; your law is being broken.

127Because I love your commands more than gold, more than pure gold,

128and because I consider all your precepts right, I hate every wrong path. פ Pe

129Your statutes are wonderful; therefore I obey them.

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

131I open my mouth and pant, longing for your commands.

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

133Direct my footsteps according to your word; let no sin rule over me.

134Redeem me from human oppression, that I may obey your precepts.

135Make your face shine on your servant and teach me your decrees.

136Streams of tears flow from my eyes, for your law is not obeyed. צ Tsadhe
