Zayin

49 Remember (A)your word to your servant,
    in which you have made me (B)hope.
50 This is (C)my comfort in my affliction,
    that your promise (D)gives me life.
51 (E)The insolent utterly deride me,
    but I do not (F)turn away from your law.
52 When I think of your rules from of old,
    I take comfort, O Lord.
53 (G)Hot indignation seizes me because of the wicked,
    who forsake your law.
54 Your statutes have been my songs
    in the house of my (H)sojourning.
55 I (I)remember your name in the night, O Lord,
    and keep your law.
56 This blessing has fallen to me,
    that (J)I have kept your precepts.

Heth

57 (K)The Lord is my portion;
    I promise to keep your words.
58 I (L)entreat your favor with all my heart;
    be gracious to me (M)according to your promise.
59 When I (N)think on my ways,
    I turn my feet to your testimonies;
60 I hasten and do not delay
    to keep your commandments.
61 Though (O)the cords of the wicked ensnare me,
    I do not (P)forget your law.
62 At (Q)midnight I rise to praise you,
    because of your (R)righteous rules.
63 (S)I am a companion of all who fear you,
    of those who keep your precepts.
64 (T)The earth, O Lord, is full of your steadfast love;
    (U)teach me your statutes!

Teth

65 You have dealt well with your servant,
    O Lord, (V)according to your word.
66 Teach me (W)good judgment and knowledge,
    for I believe in your commandments.
67 (X)Before I was afflicted I went astray,
    but now I keep your word.
68 (Y)You are good and do good;
    (Z)teach me your statutes.
69 (AA)The insolent (AB)smear me with lies,
    but with my whole heart I (AC)keep your precepts;
70 their heart is unfeeling (AD)like fat,
    but I (AE)delight in your law.
71 It is (AF)good for me that I was afflicted,
    that I might learn your statutes.
72 (AG)The law of your mouth is better to me
    than thousands of gold and silver pieces.
