Psalm 119:153-160

Psalm 119:153-160 all begin with resh (ר).

Look at my afflictions and rescue me
for I do not forget your laws.

Plead my legal cause and redeem me
let me live in your word.

Salvation is far from the wicked
for they do not seek your statutes.

Your mercy is great, oh Lord
let me live according to your justice.

Many are my persecutors and my adversaries
I have not stretched from your decrees.

I saw the treacherous ones and felt disgust
because they do not keep your word.

See that I love your precepts
Lord, let me live according to your steadfast love.

The sum of your word is truth
and every one of your righteous judgments is forever.
