Psalm 119:33-35 New English Translation (NET Bible)

ה (He)

33 Teach me, O Lord, the lifestyle prescribed by your statutes,[a]
so that I might observe it continually.[b]
34 Give me understanding so that I might observe your law,
and keep it with all my heart.[c]
35 Guide me[d] in the path of your commands,
for I delight to walk in it.[e]


  1. Psalm 119:33 tn Heb “the way of your statutes.”
  2. Psalm 119:33 tn Heb “and I will keep it to the end.” The prefixed verbal form with vav (ו) conjunctive indicates purpose/result after the preceding imperative. The Hebrew term עֵקֶב (ʿeqev) is understood to mean “end” here. Another option is to take עֵקֶב as meaning “reward” here (see Ps 19:11) and to translate, “so that I might observe it and be rewarded.”
  3. Psalm 119:34 tn The two prefixed verbal forms with vav (ו) conjunctive indicate purpose/result after the introductory imperative.
  4. Psalm 119:35 tn Or “make me walk.”
  5. Psalm 119:35 tn Heb “for in it I delight.”
