Psalm 119/8

  Psalm 119 is a 22-stanza poem of 8 lines each wherein each line begins with the same Hebrew letter. For this week, I've re-compiled it into 8 different acrostic poems.

 

Psalm 119/8

I will keep your statutes; Oh, do not forsake me utterly!
I will delight myself in Your statutes; I will not forget Your word.
Your testimonies also are my delight and my counselors.
I will run the course of Your commandments, for You shall enlarge my heart.
Behold, I long for Your precepts; revive me in Your righteousness.
My hands also will lift up to Your commandments, which I love, and I will meditate on Your statutes.
This has become mine, because I kept your precepts.
The earth, O LORD, is full of Your mercy; teach me Your statutes.
The law of Your mouth is better to me than thousands of coins of gold and silver.
Let my heart be blameless regarding Your statutes, that I may not be ashamed.
Revive me according to Your lovingkindness, so that I may keep the testimony of Your mouth.
I have seen the consummation of all perfection, but Your commandment is exceedingly broad.
Through Your precepts I get understanding; therefore I hate very false way.
I have inclined my heart to perform Your statutes forever, to the very end.
My flesh trembles for fear of You, and I am afraid of Your judgments.
Therefore all Your precepts concerning all things I consider to be right; I hate every false way.
Rivers of water run down from my eyes, because men do not keep Your law.
The righteousness of Your testimonies is everlasting; give me understanding and I shall live.
Concerning Your testimonies, I have known of old that You have founded them forever.
The entirety of Your word is truth, and every one of Your righteous judgments endures forever.
I keep Your precepts and Your testimonies, for all my ways are before You.
I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek Your servant, for I do not forget Your commandments.

 Psalm 119/6

Then I would not be ashamed, when I look into all Your commandments.
I have rejoiced in the way of Your testimonies, as much as in all riches.
Remove from me reproach and contempt, for I have kept Your testimonies.
I have chosen the way of truth; Your judgments I have laid before me.
Establish Your word to Your servant, who is devoted to fearing you.

Your statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimage.
At midnight, I will rise to give thanks to You, because of Your righteous judgments.
Their heart is as fat as grease, but I delight in Your law.
Let the proud be ashamed, for they treated me wrongfully with falsehood; but I will meditate on Your precepts.
All Your commandments are faithful; they persecute me wrongfully. Help me!
I am Yours, save me; for I have sought Your precepts.
I have not departed from Your judgments, for You Yourself have taught me.
The wicked have laid a snare for me, Yet I have not strayed from Your precepts.
You reject all those who stray from Your statutes, for their deceit is falsehood.
It is time for You to act, O LORD, for they have regarded Your law as void.
Redeem me from the oppression of man, that I may keep Your precepts.
Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and Your law is truth.
They draw near who follow after wickedness; they are far from Your law.
I see the treacherous and am disgusted, because they do not keep Your word.
LORD, I hope for Your salvation, and I do Your commandments.
I long for Your salvation, O LORD, and Your law is my delight.

 Psalm 119/5

Oh, that my ways were directed to keep Your statutes!
With my lips I have declared all the judgments of Your mouth.

Indignation has taken hold of me because of the wicked, who forsake Your law.
The cords of the wicked bound me, but I have not forgotten Your law.

Let Your tender mercies come to me, that I may live; for Your law is my delight.
The proud have dug pits for me, which is not according to Your law.
I will never forget Your precepts, for by them You have given me life.
I have restrained my feet from every evil way, that I may keep Your word.
My life is continually in Your hand, yet I do not forget Your law.
Hold me up and I shall be safe, and I shall observe Your statutes continually.
I am Your servant; give me understanding, that I may know Your testimonies.
Direct my steps by Your word, and let no iniquity have dominion over me.
I am small and despised, yet I do not forget Your precepts.
Hear my voice according to Your lovingkindness; O LORD, revive me according to Your justice.
Many are my persecutors and my enemies, yet I do not turn from Your testimonies.
Great peace have those who love Your law, and nothing causes them to stumble.
Let Your hand become my help, for I have chosen Your precepts.

Psalm 119/4

You have commanded us to keep Your precepts diligently.
Blessed are You, O LORD! Teach me Your statutes.

I made haste and did not delay to keep Your commandments.
You are good and do good; teach me Your statutes.

How many are the days of Your servant?When will You execute judgment on those who persecute me?
Unless Your law had been my delight, I would then have perished in my affliction.
I understand more than the ancients, because I keep Your precepts.
Accept, I pray, the freewill offerings of my mouth, O LORD, and teach me Your judgments.
Uphold me according to Your word, thatI may live; and do not let me be ashamed of my hope.
Deal with Your servant according to Your mercy, and teach me Your statutes.
Look upon me an be merciful to me, as Your custom is toward those who love Your name.
Your word is very pure; therefore Your servant loves it.
My eyes are awake through the night watches that I may meditate on Your word.
Great are Your tender mercies, O LORD; revive me according to Your judgments.
Seven times a day I praise You, because of Your righteous judgments.
My tongue shall speak of Your word, for all Your commandments are righteousness.

PSALM 119/3

They also do no iniquity; they walk in His ways.
Your word I have hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against You.
I am a stranger in the earth; do not hide Your commandments from me.
Make me understand the way of Your precepts; so shall I meditate on Your wonderful works.
Make me walk in the path of Your commandments, for I delight in it.
And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth, for I have hoped in Your ordinances.
The proud have me in great derision, yet I do not turn aside from Your law.
I thought about my ways, and turned my feet to Your testimonies.
Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I keep Your word.
I know, O LORD, that Your judgments are right, and that in faithfulness You have afflicted me.
For I have become like a wineskin in smoke, yet i do not forget Your statutes.
They continue this day according to Your ordinances, for all are Your servants.
I have more understanding than all my teachers, for Your testimonies are my meditation.
I am afflicted very much; revive me, O LORD, according to Your word.
Depart from me, you evildoers, for I will keep the commandments of my God!
My eyes fail from seeking Your salvation and Your righteous word.
I opened my mouth and panted, for I longed for Your commandments.
My zeal has consumed me, because my enemies have forgotten Your words.
I rise before the dawning of the morning and cry for help; I hope in Your word.
Salvation is far from the wicked, for they do not seek Your statutes.
I hate and abhor lying, but I love Your law.
My lips shall utter praise, for You teach me Your statutes.
