103:1 By David. Praise the Lord, O my soul. With all that is within me, praise his holy name. 2Praise the Lord, O my soul. Do not forget all his kind deeds. 3He is the one who forgives all your sins, who heals all your diseases, 4who delivers your life from the Pit, who crowns you with his loyal love and compassion, 5who satisfies your life with good things, so your youth is renewed like an eagle’s. 6The Lord does what is fair, and executes justice for all the oppressed. 7The Lord revealed his faithful acts to Moses, his deeds to the Israelites. 8The Lord is compassionate and merciful; he is patient and demonstrates great loyal love. 9He does not always accuse and does not stay angry. 10He does not deal with us as our sins deserve; he does not repay us as our misdeeds deserve. 11For as the skies are high above the earth, so his loyal love towers over his faithful followers. 12As far as the eastern horizon is from the west, so he removes the guilt of our rebellious actions from us. 13As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on his faithful followers. 14For he knows what we are made of; he realizes we are made of clay. 15A person’s life is like grass. Like a flower in the field it flourishes, 16but when the hot wind blows, it disappears, and one can no longer even spot the place where it once grew. 17But the Lord continually shows loyal love to his faithful followers and is faithful to their descendants, 18to those who keep his covenant, who are careful to obey his commands. 19The Lord has established his throne in heaven; his kingdom extends over everything. 20Praise the Lord, you angels of his, you powerful warriors who carry out his decrees and obey his orders. 21Praise the Lord, all you warriors of his, you servants of his who carry out his desires. 22Praise the Lord, all that he has made, in all the regions of his kingdom. Praise the Lord, O my soul. (NET Bible)
119:1 א (Alef) How blessed are those whose actions are blameless, who obey the law of the Lord. 2How blessed are those who observe his rules and seek him with all their heart, 3who, moreover, do no wrong, but follow in his footsteps. 4You demand that your precepts be carefully kept. 5If only I were predisposed to keep your statutes. 6Then I would not be ashamed, if I were focused on all your commands. 7I will give you sincere thanks when I learn your just regulations. 8I will keep your statutes. Do not completely abandon me. 9ב (Bet) How can a young person maintain a pure life? By guarding it according to your instructions. 10With all my heart I seek you. Do not allow me to stray from your commands. 11In my heart I store up your words, so I might not sin against you. 12You deserve praise, O Lord. Teach me your statutes. 13With my lips I proclaim all the regulations you have revealed. 14I rejoice in the lifestyle prescribed by your rules as if they were riches of all kinds. 15I will meditate on your precepts and focus on your behavior. 16I find delight in your statutes; I do not forget your instructions. 17ג (Gimel) Be kind to your servant. Then I will live and keep your instructions. 18Open my eyes so I can truly see the marvelous things in your law. 19I am a resident foreigner in this land. Do not hide your commands from me. 20I desperately long to know your regulations at all times. 21You reprimand arrogant people. Those who stray from your commands are doomed. 22Spare me shame and humiliation, for I observe your rules. 23Though rulers plot and slander me, your servant meditates on your statutes. 24Yes, I find delight in your rules; they give me guidance. 25ד (Dalet) I collapse in the dirt. Revive me with your word. 26I told you about my ways and you answered me. Teach me your statutes. 27Help me to understand what your precepts mean. Then I can meditate on your marvelous teachings. 28I collapse from grief. Sustain me by your word. 29Remove me from the path of deceit. Graciously give me your law. 30I choose the path of faithfulness; I am committed to your regulations. 31I hold fast to your rules. O Lord, do not let me be ashamed. 32I run along the path of your commands, for you enable me to do so. 33ה (He) Teach me, O Lord, the lifestyle prescribed by your statutes so that I might observe it continually. 34Give me understanding so that I might observe your law and keep it with all my heart. 35Guide me in the path of your commands, for I delight to walk in it. 36Give me a desire for your rules, rather than for wealth gained unjustly. 37Turn my eyes away from what is worthless. Revive me with your word. 38Confirm to your servant your promise, which you made to the one who honors you. 39Take away the insults that I dread. Indeed, your regulations are good. 40Look, I long for your precepts. Revive me with your deliverance. 41ו (Vav) May I experience your loyal love, O Lord, and your deliverance, as you promised. 42Then I will have a reply for the one who insults me, for I trust in your word. 43Do not completely deprive me of a truthful testimony, for I await your justice. 44Then I will keep your law continually now and for all time. 45I will be secure, for I seek your precepts. 46I will speak about your regulations before kings and not be ashamed. 47I will find delight in your commands, which I love. 48I will lift my hands to your commands, which I love, and I will meditate on your statutes.
