Psalm 119:97-120
Mem
Oh how I love your law! *
It is my meditation all the day.
You make me wiser than my enemies through your commandments, *
for they are ever with me.
I have more understanding than all my teachers, *
for your testimonies are my meditation.
I understand more than the aged, *
because I keep your precepts.
I restrain my feet from every evil way, *
that I may keep your word.
I do not depart from your ordinances, *
for you yourself have taught me.
How sweet are your words to my taste, *
sweeter than honey to my mouth!
Through your precepts I get understanding; *
therefore I hate every false way.
Nun
Your word is a lamp to my feet *
and a light to my path.
I have sworn an oath and I confirm it, *
that I will keep your righteous rules.
I am exceedingly afflicted; *
revive me, O LORD, according to your word!
Accept, O LORD, my freewill offerings of praise, *
and teach me your ordinances.
My life I hold in my hand continually, *
yet I do not forget your law.
The wicked have laid a snare for me, *
yet I do not stray from your precepts.
Your testimonies are my heritage forever; *
they are the rejoicing of my heart.
I incline my heart to obey your statutes; *
their reward is eternal.
Samekh
I hate the double-minded, *
but I love your law.
You are my hiding place and my shield; *
I have my hope in your word.
Depart from me, you evildoers, *
for I will keep the commands of my God.
Uphold me according to your word and I shall live: *
and make me not ashamed of my hope!
Hold me up, and I shall be safe *
and continually have regard for your statutes!
You spurn all those who stray from your statutes, *
for their deceitfulness is falsehood.
All the wicked of the earth you discard like dross, *
therefore I love your testimonies.
My flesh trembles for fear of you, *
for I am afraid of your judgments.
