Daleth

25 (A)My soul clings to the dust;
    (B)give me life (C)according to your word!
26 When (D)I told of my ways, you answered me;
    (E)teach me your statutes!
27 (F)Make me understand the way of your precepts,
    and I will (G)meditate on your wondrous works.
28 (H)My soul melts away for sorrow;
    strengthen me according to your word!
29 Put false ways far from me
    and graciously (I)teach me your law!
30 I have chosen the way of faithfulness;
    I (J)set your rules before me.
31 I cling to your testimonies, O Lord;
    (K)let me not be put to shame!
32 I will run in the way of your commandments
    when you (L)enlarge my heart![a]

He

33 (M)Teach me, O Lord, the way of your statutes;
    and I will keep it (N)to the end.[b]
34 (O)Give me understanding, that I may keep your law
    and observe it with my whole heart.
35 (P)Lead me in the path of your commandments,
    for I (Q)delight in it.
36 (R)Incline my heart to your testimonies,
    and not to (S)selfish gain!
37 (T)Turn my eyes from looking at worthless things;
    and (U)give me life in your ways.
38 (V)Confirm to your servant your promise,
    (W)that you may be feared.
39 Turn away the (X)reproach that I dread,
    for your rules are good.
40 Behold, I (Y)long for your precepts;
    (Z)in your righteousness give me life!

Waw

41 Let your (AA)steadfast love come to me, O Lord,
    your salvation (AB)according to your promise;
42 then (AC)shall I have an answer for him (AD)who taunts me,
    for I trust in your word.
43 And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth,
    for my (AE)hope is in your rules.
44 I will keep your law continually,
    forever and ever,
45 and I shall walk (AF)in a wide place,
    for I have (AG)sought your precepts.
46 I will also speak of your testimonies (AH)before kings
    and shall not be put to shame,
47 for I (AI)find my delight in your commandments,
    which I love.
48 I will (AJ)lift up my hands toward your commandments, which I love,
    and I will (AK)meditate on your statutes.
