Psalm 119:129-136

All of these verses begin with the Hebrew letter pe (פ).

Your decrees are miracles
Therefore, my soul keeps them.

The statement of your words give light, giving understanding to the simple.

I opened my mouth and I panted
For I longed for your commandments.

Turn to me and show favor on me
As is customary to those who love your name.

Make my steps firm in your word
And let no iniquity gain power over me.

Redeem me from human oppression
That I may keep your precepts.

Make your face shine on your servant
And teach me your statutes.

My eyes melt in streams of water
Because your laws are not kept.
