MEM. Oh how I love thy law! it is my meditation all the day.
But his delight is in Jehovah's law, and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
How sweet are thy words unto my taste! more than honey to my mouth!
Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips; I have laid up the words of his mouth more than the purpose of my own heart.
Mine eyes fail for thy word, saying, When wilt thou comfort me?
SHIN. Princes have persecuted me without a cause; but my heart standeth in awe of thy word.
Even all these things hath my hand made, and all these things have been, saith Jehovah. But to this man will I look: to the afflicted and contrite in spirit, and who trembleth at my word.
I delight myself in thy statutes; I will not forget thy word.
I beheld them that deal treacherously, and was grieved; because they kept not thy word.
Thy word have I hid in my heart, that I might not sin against thee.
They that fear thee will see me, and rejoice; because I have hoped in thy word.
I have more understanding than all my teachers; for thy testimonies are my meditation.
I have joy in thy word, as one that findeth great spoil.
Thy words were found, and I did eat them, and thy words were unto me the joy and rejoicing of my heart; for I am called by thy name, O Jehovah, God of hosts.
So shall I have wherewith to answer him that reproacheth me; for I confide in thy word.
Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I keep thy word.
But he answering said to them, My mother and my brethren are those who hear the word of God and do it.
I have manifested thy name to the men whom thou gavest me out of the world. They were thine, and thou gavest them me, and they have kept thy word.
My tongue shall speak aloud of thy word; for all thy commandments are righteousness.
NUN. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
Blessed art thou, Jehovah! teach me thy statutes.
Establish my steps in thy word; and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.
DALETH. My soul cleaveth unto the dust: quicken me according to thy word.
