Psalm 119:49-56

All of these verses begin with the Hebrew letter, zayin (ז).

Remember the word to your servant
on which you caused me to hope.

This is my comfort in my affliction
when your word causes me to live.

The proud scoff at me exceedingly
I did not turn from your law.

I remembered your judgments from a long time ago, Oh Lord, and I have taken comfort.

Rage held me because of the wicked
the ones who forsake your law.

Your statutes have been songs to me in the house of my foreign land.

I remembered your name in the night, Oh Lord,
and I kept your law.

This was to me
that I kept your precepts.
