122 Give your servant (A)a pledge of good;
let not (B)the insolent oppress me.

and (D)teach me your statutes.
125 I am your (E)servant; (F)give me understanding,
that I may know your testimonies!
126 It is time for the Lord to act,
for your law has been broken.
127 Therefore I (G)love your commandments
above gold, above fine gold.
128 Therefore I consider all your precepts to be right;
I hate every (H)false way.
129 Your testimonies are (I)wonderful;
therefore my soul (J)keeps them.
130 The unfolding of your words gives light;
it imparts (K)understanding to the simple.

because I (N)long for your commandments.
132 (O)Turn to me and be gracious to me,
as is your way with those who love your name.
133 (P)Keep steady my steps according to your promise,

134 (R)Redeem me from man's oppression,
that I may keep your precepts.
135 (S)Make your face shine upon your servant,
and (T)teach me your statutes.
136 My eyes (U)shed streams of tears,
because people (V)do not keep your law.
137 (W)Righteous are you, O Lord,
and right are your rules.
138 You have appointed your testimonies in (X)righteousness
and in all (Y)faithfulness.
139 My (Z)zeal consumes me,
because my foes forget your words.
140 Your promise is well (AA)tried,
and your servant (AB)loves it.
141 I am small and despised,
yet I do not (AC)forget your precepts.
142 Your righteousness is righteous forever,
and your law is (AD)true.
143 Trouble and anguish have found me out,
but your commandments are my (AE)delight.
144 Your testimonies are righteous forever;
(AF)give me understanding that I may (AG)live.
