    for ever and ever.
45 I will walk about in freedom,
    for I have sought out your precepts.(H)

49 Remember your word(N) to your servant,
    for you have given me hope.(O)
50 My comfort in my suffering is this:
    Your promise preserves my life.(P)
51 The arrogant mock me(Q) unmercifully,
    but I do not turn(R) from your law.
52 I remember,(S) Lord, your ancient laws,
    and I find comfort in them.
53 Indignation grips me(T) because of the wicked,
    who have forsaken your law.(U)
54 Your decrees are the theme of my song(V)
    wherever I lodge.
55 In the night, Lord, I remember(W) your name,
    that I may keep your law.(X)
56 This has been my practice:
    I obey your precepts.(Y)

ח Heth

57 You are my portion,(Z) Lord;
    I have promised to obey your words.(AA)
58 I have sought(AB) your face with all my heart;
    be gracious to me(AC) according to your promise.(AD)
59 I have considered my ways(AE)
    and have turned my steps to your statutes.
60 I will hasten and not delay
    to obey your commands.(AF)
61 Though the wicked bind me with ropes,
    I will not forget(AG) your law.
62 At midnight(AH) I rise to give you thanks
    for your righteous laws.(AI)
63 I am a friend to all who fear you,(AJ)
    to all who follow your precepts.(AK)
64 The earth is filled with your love,(AL) Lord;
    teach me your decrees.(AM)

ט Teth

65 Do good(AN) to your servant
    according to your word,(AO) Lord.

67 Before I was afflicted(AQ) I went astray,(AR)
    but now I obey your word.(AS)
68 You are good,(AT) and what you do is good;
    teach me your decrees.(AU)
69 Though the arrogant have smeared me with lies,(AV)
    I keep your precepts with all my heart.
70 Their hearts are callous(AW) and unfeeling,
    but I delight in your law.
71 It was good for me to be afflicted(AX)
    so that I might learn your decrees.
72 The law from your mouth is more precious to me
    than thousands of pieces of silver and gold.(AY)

י Yodh

73 Your hands made me(AZ) and formed me;
