Teach me your ordinances! 13 With my lips I will declare all the judgments of your mouth. 14 [2in 3the 4way 5of your testimonies 1I delighted] as above all riches. 15 In your commandments I shall meditate; and I shall contemplate your ways. 16 [2in 3your ordinances 1I shall meditate]; I shall not forget your words. 17 Recompense to your servant!

Show mercy on me according to your oracle! 59 I argued your ways, and I turned my feet to your testimonies. 60 I prepared myself, and was not disturbed to keep your commandments. 61 The rough cords of sinners twist me, but your law I did not forget. 62 At midnight I awoke to confess to you over the judgments of your righteousness. 63 [3a partner 1I 2am] of all of the ones fearing you, and of the ones keeping your commandments. 64 Of your mercy, O lord, [3is full 1the 2earth]; [3your ordinances 1teach 2me]! 65 That which is good you did with your servant, O lord, according to your word. 66 That which is good, and instruction, and knowledge, teach me! for [2your commandments 1I trusted]! 67 Before my being humbled, I committed trespasses; on account of this [2your oracle 1I guarded]. 68 [2gracious 1You are], O lord; and in your graciousness teach me your ordinances! 69 [3was multiplied 4against 5me 1The injustice 2of the proud]; but I [3with 5whole 6heart 4my 1shall search out 2your commandments]. 70 [2was curdled 3as 4milk 1Their heart]; but I [2your law 1meditated upon]. 71 It is good for me that you humbled me, so that I should learn your ordinances. 72 [4is good 5to me 1The 2law 3of your mouth], above a thousand pieces of gold and silver. 73 Your hands made me, and shaped me. Bring understanding to me! and I shall learn your commandments. 74 The ones fearing you shall see me and shall be glad; for in your words I raised hope. 75 I knew, O lord, that [2are righteousness 1your judgments], and in truth you humbled me. 76 Let [3be 2indeed 1your mercy] to comfort me according to your oracle to your servant! 77 Let [2come 3to me 1your compassions]! and I shall live; for your law [2meditation 1is my]. 78 Let [2be shamed 1the proud]! for unjustly they acted lawlessly against me.

In your words I raised hope. 82 [2failed 1My eyes] for your oracle, saying, When will you comfort me? 83 For I became as a leather bag in frost; your ordinances I forgot not. 84 How many are the days of your servant? When will you execute for me [2against 3the ones 4pursuing 5me 1a judgment]? 85 [2described 4against me 1Lawbreakers 3a meditation], but not according to your law, O lord. 86 All your commandments are truth. [3unjustly 1They pursued 2me]; help me! 87 In a short time they would have finished me off entirely in the earth, but I did not abandon your commandments. 88 According to your mercy enliven me! and I shall guard the testimonies of your mouth. 89 Into the eon, O lord, your word abides in the heaven. 90 Unto generation and generation is your truth. You laid [3foundation 1the 2earth's], and it abides. 91 [3by 4your disposition 2abides 1The day]; for all things [2subservient 1are your]. 92 Were it not that your law [2my meditation 1is], then would I have been destroyed in my humiliation. 93 [4into 5the 6eon 1In no way 2should I forget 3your ordinances]; for by them you enlivened me. 94 [2yours 1I am], deliver me! for [2your ordinances 1I sought after]. 95 [3for me 2remained behind 1Sinners], to destroy me; [2your testimonies 1I perceived]. 96 [3of every 4completion 1I beheld 2the end]; [3spacious 1your commandment 2is exceedingly]. 97 How I loved your law, O lord; the entire day [2meditation 1it is my]. 98 Above my enemies you made me wiser by your commandment; for into the eon it is to me. 99 Above all the ones teaching me I perceived; for your testimonies [2my meditation 1are]. 100 Above the elders I perceived; for [2your commandments 1I sought after]. 101 From out of every [2way 1evil] I restrained my feet, so that I shall guard your words. 102 From your judgments I did not turn aside; for you established law for me. 103 How sweet to my throat are your oracles; more than honey in my mouth. 104 By your commandments I perceived; on account of this I detested every way of injustice. 105 [2is a lamp 3unto 4my feet 1Your law] and a light to my paths. 106 I swore by an oath, and stood to guard the judgments of your righteousness. 107 I was humbled unto exceedingly, O lord; enliven me according to your word! 108 [3the 4voluntary offerings 5of my mouth 1Take pleasure 2indeed in], O lord, and [3your judgments 1teach 2me]! 109 My soul is in your hands always; and your law I forgot not. 110 [2put 1Sinners] a snare for me; but from your commandments I wandered not. 111 I inherited your testimonies into the eon; for [2a leap for joy 3to 4my heart 1they are]. 112 I leaned my heart to observe your ordinances into the eon in remuneration. 113 Lawbreakers I detested, but your law I loved. 114 [2my helper 3and 4my shielder 1You are]; by your words I raised hope. 115 Turn aside from me O ones acting wicked! for I shall search out the commandments of my God. 116 Take hold of me according to your oracle; and enliven me! for you should not put me to shame of my expectation. 117 Help me, and I shall be delivered! and I will meditate in your ordinances always. 118 [6treated me with contempt 1All 2the ones 3defecting 4from 5your ordinances]; for [2is unjust 1their thought]. 119 [7as ones violating the law 6I considered 1All 2the 3sinners 4of the 5earth]; on account of this I loved your testimonies. 120 Nail up [2because of 3the 4fear 5of you 1my flesh]! for because of your judgments I feared. 121 I executed judgment and righteousness; you should not deliver me to the ones wronging me. 122 Look out for your servant for good; let not [2extort 3me 1the proud]! 123 My eyes are wanting for your deliverance, and for the oracle of your righteousness. 124 Do with your servant according to your mercy, and [3your ordinances 1teach 2me]! 125 [2your servant 1I am]; bring understanding to me! and I will make known your testimonies. 126 It is time [3to act 1for the 2 lord]; they effaced your law. 127 On account of this I loved your commandments above gold and topaz. 128 On account of this [2to 3all 4of your commandments 1I kept straight]; every way of the unjust I detested. 129 [2are wonderful 1Your testimonies]; on account of this [2searches them out 1my soul]. 130 The manifestation of your words shall give light, and bring understanding to simple ones. 131 [2my mouth 1I opened] and drew breath; for your commandments I longed after. 132 Look upon me, and show mercy on me! according to the practice of the ones loving your name. 133 [2my footsteps 1Straighten out] according to your oracle! and let there not dominate me any lawlessness! 134 Ransom me from the extortion of men! and I will keep your commandments. 135 [2your face 1Let] appear unto your servant, and teach me your ordinances! 136 Streams of waters flowed down my eyes when I kept not your law. 137 You are just, O lord, and [2are straight 1your judgments]. 138 You gave charge for righteousness of your testimonies and truth -- exceedingly. 139 [3wasted me away 1The zeal 2of you], for [2forgot 3your words 1my enemies]. 140 [3setting on fire 1Your oracle 2is an exceeding]; and your servant loves it. 141 [3younger 1I 2am], and being treated with contempt; [3your ordinances 1I did not 2forget]. 142 Your righteousness is righteousness into the eon, and your law is truth. 143 Afflictions and distresses found me; your commandments are my meditation. 144 [2are righteousness 1Your testimonies] into the eon.
