Psalm 119:145-176 Common English Bible (CEB)

ק qof

145 I cry out with all my heart:
    Lord, answer me so I can guard your statutes!”
146 I cry out to you, “Save me
    so I can keep your laws!”
147 I meet the predawn light and cry for help.
    I wait for your promise.
148 My eyes encounter each hour of the night
    as I think about your word.
149 Listen to my voice, according to your faithful love.
    Lord, make me live again, according to your justice.
150 The people who love to plot wicked schemes are nearby,
    but they are so far from your Instruction!
151 But you, Lord, are nearby too,
    and all your commandments are true.
152 Long ago I learned from your laws
    that you had established them forever.

ר resh

153 Look at my suffering and deliver me
    because I haven’t forgotten your Instruction.
154 Argue my case and redeem me.
    Make me live again by your word.
155 Salvation is far from the wicked
    because they haven’t pursued your statutes.
156 You have so much compassion, Lord
    make me live again, according to your rules.
157 My oppressors and enemies are many,
    but I haven’t turned away from your laws.
158 I look on the faithless, and I am disgusted
    because they haven’t kept your word.
159 Look at how much I love your precepts.
    Make me live again, Lord, according to your faithful love!
160 The first thing to know about your word is that it is true
    and that all your righteous rules last forever.

שׂ sin and שׁ shin

161 Rulers oppress me without cause,
    but my heart honors what you’ve said.
162 I’m overjoyed at your word,
    like someone who finds great treasure.
163 I hate, I absolutely despise, what is false,
    but I’m in love with your Instruction.
164 I praise you seven times a day
    for your righteous rules.
165 The people who love your Instruction enjoy peace—and lots of it.
    There’s no stumbling for them!
166 Lord, I wait for your saving help.
    I do what you’ve commanded.
167 I keep your laws;
    I love them so much!
168 I keep your precepts and your laws
    because all my ways are seen by you.

ת tav

169 Let my cry reach you, Lord;
    help me understand according to what you’ve said.
170 Let my request for grace come before you;
    deliver me according to your promise!
171 Let my lips overflow with praise
    because you’ve taught me your statutes.
172 Let my tongue declare your word,
    because all your commandments are righteous.
173 Let your power help me
    because I have chosen your precepts.
174 Lord, I long for your saving help!
    Your Instruction is my joy!
175 Let me live again so I can praise you!
    Let your rules help me!
176 I’ve wandered off like a sheep, lost.
    Find your servant
        because I haven’t forgotten
        your commandments!
