Your Word Is a Lamp to My Feet

Psa 119:1  (א ALEPH) BLESSED are the undefiled in the Way, who walk in the Torah of YAHUAH.

Psa 119:2  Blessed are they that guard his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.

Psa 119:3  They also do no iniquity: they walk in his ways.

Psa 119:4  You have commanded us to guard your precepts diligently.

Psa 119:5  O that my ways were directed to guard your statutes!

Psa 119:6  Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all your commandments.

Psa 119:7  I will praise you with uprightness of heart, when I shall have learned your righteous judgments.

Psa 119:9  (בּ BEYT) Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse את eth-his way? by taking heed thereto according to your word.

Psa 119:10  With my whole heart have I sought you: O let me not wander from your commandments.

Psa 119:11  Your word have I hid in my heart, that I might not sin against you.

Psa 119:12  Blessed are you, O YAHUAH: teach me your statutes.

Psa 119:13  With my lips have I declared all the judgments of your mouth.

Psa 119:14  I have rejoiced in the way of your testimonies, as much as in all riches.

Psa 119:15  I will meditate in your precepts, and have respect unto your ways.

Psa 119:16  I will delight myself in your statutes: I will not forget your word.

Psa 119:17  (ג GIMMEL) Deal bountifully with your servant, that I may live, and guard your word.

Psa 119:18  Open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of your Torah.

Psa 119:19  I am a stranger in the earth: hide not your commandments from me.

Psa 119:20  My soul breaks for the longing that it has unto your judgments at all times.

Psa 119:21  You have rebuked the proud that are cursed, which do err from your commandments.

Psa 119:22  Remove from me reproach and contempt; for I have kept your testimonies.

Psa 119:23  Princes also did sit and speak against me: but your servant did meditate in your statutes.

Psa 119:24  Your testimonies also are my delight and my counselors.

Psa 119:25  (ד DALET) My soul cleaves unto the dust: quicken me according to your word.

Psa 119:26  I have declared my ways, and you heard me: teach me your statutes.

Psa 119:27  Make me to understand the way of your precepts: so shall I talk of your wondrous works.

Psa 119:28  My soul melts for heaviness: strengthen me according to your word.

Psa 119:29  Remove from me the way of lying: and grant me your Torah graciously.

Psa 119:30  I have chosen the Way of Truth: your judgments have I laid before me.

Psa 119:31  I have stuck unto your testimonies: O YAHUAH, put me not to shame.

Psa 119:32  I will run the way of your commandments, when you shall enlarge my heart.

Psa 119:33  (ה HEY) Teach me, O YAHUAH, the way of your statutes; and I shall guard it unto the end.

Psa 119:41  (ו VAV) Let your mercies come also unto me, O YAHUAH, even your yeshu`ah, according to your word.

Psa 119:42  So shall I have wherewith to answer him that reproaches me: for I trust in your word.

Psa 119:43  And take not the Word of Truth utterly out of my mouth; for I have hoped in your judgments.

Psa 119:44  So shall I guard your Torah continually forever and ever.

Psa 119:45  And I will walk at liberty: for I seek your precepts.

Psa 119:46  I will speak of your testimonies also before kings, and will not be ashamed.

Psa 119:47  And I will delight myself in your commandments, which I have loved.

Psa 119:49  (ז ZAYIN) Remember the word unto your servant, upon which you have caused me to hope.

Psa 119:50  This is my comfort in my affliction: for your word has quickened me.

Psa 119:51  The proud have had me greatly in derision: yet have I not declined from your Torah.

Psa 119:52  I remembered your judgments of old, O YAHUAH; and have comforted myself.

Psa 119:53  Horror has taken hold upon me because of the wicked that forsake your Torah.

Psa 119:54  Your statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimage.

Psa 119:55  I have remembered your name, O YAHUAH, in the night, and have guarded your Torah.

Psa 119:56  This I had, because I kept your precepts.

Psa 119:57  (ח CHET) You are my portion, O YAHUAH: I have said that I would guard your words.

Psa 119:58  I intreated your favour with my whole heart: be merciful unto me according to your word.

Psa 119:59  I thought on my ways, and turned my feet unto your testimonies.

Psa 119:60  I made haste, and delayed not to guard your commandments.

Psa 119:61  The bands of the wicked have robbed me: but I have not forgotten your Torah.

Psa 119:62  At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto you because of your righteous judgments.

Psa 119:63  I am a companion of all them that fear you, and of them that guard your precepts.

Psa 119:64  The earth, O YAHUAH, is full of your mercy: teach me your statutes.

Psa 119:66  Teach me good judgment and knowledge: for I have believed your commandments.

Psa 119:67  Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I guarded your word.

Psa 119:68  You are good, and do good; teach me your statutes.

Psa 119:69  The proud have forged a lie against me: but I will guard your precepts with my whole heart.

Psa 119:70  Their heart is as fat as grease; but I delight in your Torah.

Psa 119:71  It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn your statutes.

Psa 119:72  The Torah of your mouth is better unto me than thousands of gold and silver.

Psa 119:73  (י YOD) Your hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding, that I may learn your commandments.

Psa 119:74  They that fear you will be glad when they see me; because I have hoped in your word.

Psa 119:75  I know, O YAHUAH, that your judgments are right, and that you in faithfulness have afflicted me.

Psa 119:81  (כּ KAPH) My soul faints for your yeshu`ah (salvation): but I hope in your word.

Psa 119:82  My eyes fail for your word, saying, When will you comfort me?

Psa 119:83  For I am become like a bottle in the smoke; yet do I not forget your statutes.

Psa 119:84  How many are the days of your servant? when will you execute judgment on them that persecute me?

Psa 119:85  The proud have dug pits for me, which are not after your Torah.

Psa 119:86  All your commandments are faithful: they persecute me wrongfully; help me.

Psa 119:87  They had almost consumed me upon earth; but I forsook not your precepts.

Psa 119:88  Quicken me after your lovingkind ness; so shall I guard the testimony of your mouth.

Psa 119:89  (ל LAMED) Forever, O YAHUAH, your word is settled in heaven.

Psa 119:90  Your faithfulness is unto all generations: you have established the earth, and it abides.

Psa 119:91  They continue this day according to your ordinances: for all are your servants.

Psa 119:93  I will never forget your precepts: for with them you have quickened me.

Psa 119:94  I am yours, save me; for I have sought your precepts.

Psa 119:95  The wicked have waited for me to destroy me: but I will consider your testimonies.

Psa 119:96  I have seen an end of all perfection: but your commandment is exceeding broad.

Psa 119:100  I understand more than the ancients, because I guard your precepts.

Psa 119:101  I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might guard your word.

Psa 119:102  I have not departed from your judgments: for you have taught me.

Psa 119:103  How sweet are your words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!

Psa 119:104  Through your precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.

Psa 119:105  (נ NUN) Your word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

Psa 119:106  I have sworn, and I will perform it, that I will guard your righteous judgments.

Psa 119:107  I am afflicted very much: quicken me, O YAHUAH, according to your word.

Psa 119:108  Accept, I beseech you, the freewill offerings of my mouth, O YAHUAH, and teach me your judgments.

Psa 119:109  My soul is continually in my hand: yet do I not forget your Torah.

Psa 119:115  Depart from me, ye evildoers: for I will guard the commandments of my ELOHIYM.

Psa 119:116  Uphold me according to your word, that I may live: and let me not be ashamed of my hope.

Psa 119:117  Hold me up, and I shall be safe: and I will have respect unto your statutes continually.

Psa 119:118  You have trodden down all them that err from your statutes: for their deceit is falsehood.

Psa 119:119  You put away all the wicked of the earth like dross: therefore I love your testimonies.

Psa 119:120  My flesh trembles for fear of you; and I am afraid of your judgments.

Psa 119:121  (ע AYIN) I have done judgment and justice: leave me not to my oppressors.

Psa 119:122  Be surety for your servant for good: let not the proud oppress me.

Psa 119:123  My eyes fail for your yeshu`ah (salvation), and for the word of your righteousness.

Psa 119:124  Deal with your servant according unto your mercy, and teach me your statutes.

Psa 119:125  I am your servant; give me understanding, that I may know your testimonies.

Psa 119:126  It is time for you, YAHUAH, to work: for they have made void your Torah.

Psa 119:127  Therefore I love your commandments above gold; yea, above fine gold.

Psa 119:128  Therefore I esteem all your precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way.

Psa 119:129  (פּ PEY) Your testimonies are wonderful: therefore does my soul guard them.

Psa 119:130  The entrance of your words gives light; it gives under standing unto the simple.

Psa 119:131  I opened my mouth, and panted: for I longed for your commandments.

Psa 119:132  Look upon me, and be merciful unto me, as you use to do unto those that love your name.

Psa 119:133  Order my steps in your word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.
