112 My heart is set(A) on keeping your decrees
    to the very end.[a](B)

ס Samekh

113 I hate double-minded people,(C)
    but I love your law.(D)
114 You are my refuge and my shield;(E)
    I have put my hope(F) in your word.
115 Away from me,(G) you evildoers,
    that I may keep the commands of my God!
116 Sustain me,(H) my God, according to your promise,(I) and I will live;
    do not let my hopes be dashed.(J)
117 Uphold me,(K) and I will be delivered;(L)
    I will always have regard for your decrees.(M)
118 You reject all who stray(N) from your decrees,
    for their delusions come to nothing.
119 All the wicked of the earth you discard like dross;(O)
    therefore I love your statutes.(P)
120 My flesh trembles(Q) in fear of you;(R)
    I stand in awe(S) of your laws.

121 I have done what is righteous and just;(T)
    do not leave me to my oppressors.
122 Ensure your servant’s well-being;(U)
    do not let the arrogant oppress me.(V)
123 My eyes fail,(W) looking for your salvation,(X)
    looking for your righteous promise.(Y)
124 Deal with your servant according to your love(Z)
    and teach me your decrees.(AA)
125 I am your servant;(AB) give me discernment
    that I may understand your statutes.(AC)
126 It is time for you to act, Lord;
    your law is being broken.(AD)
127 Because I love your commands(AE)
    more than gold,(AF) more than pure gold,(AG)
128 and because I consider all your precepts right,(AH)
    I hate every wrong path.(AI)
