129 Your testimonies are (A)wonderful;
Therefore my soul (B)complies with them.
130 The (C)unfolding of Your words gives light;
It gives (D)understanding to the simple.
131 I (E)opened my mouth wide and (F)panted,
For I (G)longed for Your commandments.
132 (H)Turn to me and be gracious to me,
As is right for those who love Your name.
133 Establish my (I)footsteps in Your [a]word,
And do not let any [b]wrongdoing (J)have power over me.
134 (K)Redeem me from oppression by man,
So that I may keep Your precepts.
135 (L)Make Your face shine upon Your servant,
And (M)teach me Your statutes.
136 My eyes [c]shed (N)streams of water,
Because they (O)do not keep Your Law.


137 (P)You are righteous, Lord,
And Your judgments are right.
138 You have commanded Your testimonies in (Q)righteousness
And great (R)faithfulness.
139 My (S)zeal has [d]consumed me,
Because my enemies have forgotten Your words.
140 Your (T)word is very [e]pure,
Therefore Your servant (U)loves it.
141 I am small and (V)despised,
Yet I do not (W)forget Your precepts.
142 Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness,
And (X)Your Law is truth.
143 Trouble and anguish have [f]come upon me,
Yet Your commandments are my (Y)delight.
144 Your (Z)testimonies are righteous forever;
(AA)Give me understanding that I may live.


145 I cried out (AB)with all my heart; answer me, Lord!
I will (AC)comply with Your statutes.
146 I cried to You; (AD)save me
And I shall keep Your testimonies.
147 I [g](AE)rise before dawn and cry for help;
I [h]wait for Your words.
148 My eyes anticipate the (AF)night watches,
So that I may (AG)meditate on Your [i]word.
149 Hear my voice (AH)according to Your faithfulness;
(AI)Revive me, Lord, according to Your judgments.
150 Those who follow after wickedness approach;
They are far from Your Law.
151 You are (AJ)near, Lord,
And all Your commandments are (AK)truth.
152 From long ago I have (AL)known from Your testimonies
That You have founded them (AM)forever.


153 (AN)Look at my (AO)affliction and rescue me,
For I have not (AP)forgotten Your Law.
154 (AQ)Plead my cause and (AR)redeem me;
Revive me according to Your [j]word.
155 Salvation is (AS)far from the wicked,
For they (AT)do not seek Your statutes.
156 [k](AU)Great are Your mercies, Lord;
Revive me according to Your judgments.
157 Many are my (AV)persecutors and my enemies,
Yet I do not (AW)turn aside from Your testimonies.
158 I see the (AX)treacherous and (AY)loathe them,
Because they do not keep Your word.
159 Consider how I (AZ)love Your precepts;
(BA)Revive me, Lord, according to Your faithfulness.
160 The (BB)sum of Your word is (BC)truth,
And every one of Your righteous judgments (BD)is everlasting.
