Psalm 119:161-168 (ש)

Psalm 119:161-168 all begin with either sin (שׂ) or shin (שׁ).

Kings persecute me in vain
and my heart shivers at your words.

I am rejoicing over your word
like one who finds great booty.

I hate and abhor false accusations
I love your law.

Seven times in the day I praise you
over your righteous judgments.

Great peace to those who love your law
and nothing is a stumblingblock to them.

I hope in your salvation, Oh Lord,
and I perform your commandments.

My soul keeps your royal protocol
and I love them exceedingly.

I keep your precepts and your royal protocol
for all my ways are before you.
