طُوبَى لِلْكَامِلِينَ طَرِيقًا، ٱلسَّالِكِينَ فِي شَرِيعَةِ ٱلرَّبِّ. ١ 1
Blessed are those whose ways are blameless, who walk in the law of Yahweh.
طُوبَى لِحَافِظِي شَهَادَاتِهِ. مِنْ كُلِّ قُلُوبِهِمْ يَطْلُبُونَهُ. ٢ 2
Blessed are they who keep his solemn commands, who seek him with all their heart.
أَيْضًا لَا يَرْتَكِبُونَ إِثْمًا. فِي طُرُقِهِ يَسْلُكُونَ. ٣ 3
They do no wrong; they walk in his ways.
أَنْتَ أَوْصَيْتَ بِوَصَايَاكَ أَنْ تُحْفَظَ تَمَامًا. ٤ 4
You have commanded us to keep your instructions so that we should carefully observe them.

Oh, that I would be firmly established in the observance of your statutes!
حِينَئِذٍ لَا أَخْزَى إِذَا نَظَرْتُ إِلَى كُلِّ وَصَايَاكَ. ٦ 6
Then I would not be put to shame when I think of all your commandments.
أَحْمَدُكَ بِٱسْتِقَامَةِ قَلْبٍ عِنْدَ تَعَلُّمِي أَحْكَامَ عَدْلِكَ. ٧ 7
I will give thanks to you with an upright heart when I learn your righteous decrees.
وَصَايَاكَ أَحْفَظُ. لَا تَتْرُكْنِي إِلَى ٱلْغَايَةِ. ٨ 8
I will observe your statutes; do not leave me alone.
بِمَ يُزَكِّي ٱلشَّابُّ طَرِيقَهُ؟ بِحِفْظِهِ إِيَّاهُ حَسَبَ كَلَامِكَ. ٩ 9
How can a young person keep his path pure? By obeying your word.
بِكُلِّ قَلْبِي طَلَبْتُكَ. لَا تُضِلَّنِي عَنْ وَصَايَاكَ. ١٠ 10
With my whole heart I seek you; Do not let me stray from your commandments.
خَبَأْتُ كَلَامَكَ فِي قَلْبِي لِكَيْلَا أُخْطِئَ إِلَيْكَ. ١١ 11

My desires are crushed by the longing to know your righteous decrees at all times.

You rebuke the proud, who are cursed, who wander from your commandments.

Spare me from disgrace and humiliation, for I have obeyed your covenant decrees.

Though rulers plot and slander me, your servant meditates on your statutes.
أَيْضًا شَهَادَاتُكَ هِيَ لَذَّتِي، أَهْلُ مَشُورَتِي. ٢٤ 24
Your covenant decrees are my delight, and they are my counselors.

My life clings to the dust! Give me life by your word.

Direct my heart toward your covenant decrees and away from unrighteous gain.

Turn my eyes from looking at worthless things; revive me in your ways.
أَقِمْ لِعَبْدِكَ قَوْلَكَ ٱلَّذِي لِمُتَّقِيكَ. ٣٨ 38
Carry out for your servant your promise that you made to those who honor you.

Take away the insults I dread, for your righteous judgments are good.
هَأَنَذَا قَدِ ٱشْتَهَيْتُ وَصَايَاكَ. بِعَدْلِكَ أَحْيِنِي. ٤٠ 40
See, I have longed for your instructions; revive me in your righteousness.
لِتَأْتِنِي رَحْمَتُكَ يَارَبُّ، خَلَاصُكَ حَسَبَ قَوْلِكَ، ٤١ 41
Yahweh, give me your unfailing love— your salvation, according to your promise;
فَأُجَاوِبَ مُعَيِّرِي كَلِمَةً، لِأَنِّي ٱتَّكَلْتُ عَلَى كَلَامِكَ. ٤٢ 42
then I will have a reply for the one who mocks me, for I trust in your word.
وَلَا تَنْزِعْ مِنْ فَمِي كَلَامَ ٱلْحَقِّ كُلَّ ٱلنَّزْعِ، لِأَنِّي ٱنْتَظَرْتُ أَحْكَامَكَ. ٤٣ 43
Do not take the word of truth from my mouth, for my hope is in your righteous decrees.
فَأَحْفَظَ شَرِيعَتَكَ دَائِمًا، إِلَى ٱلدَّهْرِ وَٱلْأَبَدِ، ٤٤ 44
I will observe your law continually, forever and ever.
وَأَتَمَشَّى فِي رَحْبٍ، لِأَنِّي طَلَبْتُ وَصَايَاكَ. ٤٥ 45

I will lift up my hands to your commandments, which I love; I will meditate on your statutes.
اُذْكُرْ لِعَبْدِكَ ٱلْقَوْلَ ٱلَّذِي جَعَلْتَنِي أَنْتَظِرُهُ. ٤٩ 49
Call to mind your promise to your servant because you have given me hope.
هَذِهِ هِيَ تَعْزِيَتِي فِي مَذَلَّتِي، لِأَنَّ قَوْلَكَ أَحْيَانِي. ٥٠ 50
This is my comfort in my affliction: that your promise has kept me alive.
ٱلْمُتَكَبِّرُونَ ٱسْتَهْزَأُوا بِي إِلَى ٱلْغَايَةِ. عَنْ شَرِيعَتِكَ لَمْ أَمِلْ. ٥١ 51
The proud have scoffed at me, yet I have not turned away from your law.
تَذَكَّرْتُ أَحْكَامَكَ مُنْذُ ٱلدَّهْرِ يَارَبُّ، فَتَعَزَّيْتُ. ٥٢ 52
I have thought about your righteous decrees from ancient times, Yahweh, and I comfort myself.
ٱلْحَمِيَّةُ أَخَذَتْنِي بِسَبَبِ ٱلْأَشْرَارِ تَارِكِي شَرِيعَتِكَ. ٥٣ 53
Hot anger has taken hold of me because of the wicked who reject your law.
تَرْنِيمَاتٍ صَارَتْ لِي فَرَائِضُكَ فِي بَيْتِ غُرْبَتِي. ٥٤ 54
Your statutes have been my songs in the house where I temporarily live.
ذَكَرْتُ فِي ٱللَّيْلِ ٱسْمَكَ يَارَبُّ، وَحَفِظْتُ شَرِيعَتَكَ. ٥٥ 55
I think about your name during the night, Yahweh, and I keep your law.
هَذَا صَارَ لِي، لِأَنِّي حَفِظْتُ وَصَايَاكَ. ٥٦ 56
This has been my practice because I have observed your instructions.
نَصِيبِي ٱلرَّبُّ، قُلْتُ لِحِفْظِ كَلَامِكَ. ٥٧ 57
Yahweh is my portion; I have determined to observe your words.
تَرَضَّيْتُ وَجْهَكَ بِكُلِّ قَلْبِي. ٱرْحَمْنِي حَسَبَ قَوْلِكَ. ٥٨ 58
I earnestly request your favor with my whole heart; be merciful to me, as your word promised.
تَفَكَّرْتُ فِي طُرُقِي، وَرَدَدْتُ قَدَمَيَّ إِلَى شَهَادَاتِكَ. ٥٩ 59
I examined my ways and turned my feet to your covenant decrees.
أَسْرَعْتُ وَلَمْ أَتَوَانَ لِحِفْظِ وَصَايَاكَ. ٦٠ 60
I hurry and do not delay to keep your commandments.
حِبَالُ ٱلْأَشْرَارِ ٱلْتَفَّتْ عَلَيَّ. أَمَّا شَرِيعَتُكَ فَلَمْ أَنْسَهَا. ٦١ 61
The cords of the wicked have ensnared me; I have not forgotten your law.
فِي مُنْتَصَفِ ٱللَّيْلِ أَقُومُ لِأَحْمَدَكَ عَلَى أَحْكَامِ بِرِّكَ. ٦٢ 62
At midnight I rise to give thanks to you because of your righteous decrees.
رَفِيقٌ أَنَا لِكُلِّ ٱلَّذِينَ يَتَّقُونَكَ وَلِحَافِظِي وَصَايَاكَ. ٦٣ 63
I am a companion of all who honor you, to all who observe your instructions.
رَحْمَتُكَ يَارَبُّ قَدْ مَلَأَتِ ٱلْأَرْضَ. عَلِّمْنِي فَرَائِضَكَ. ٦٤ 64
The earth, Yahweh, is full of your covenant faithfulness; teach me your statutes.
خَيْرًا صَنَعْتَ مَعَ عَبْدِكَ يَارَبُّ حَسَبَ كَلَامِكَ. ٦٥ 65
You have done good to your servant, Yahweh, by means of your word.
ذَوْقًا صَالِحًا وَمَعْرِفَةً عَلِّمْنِي، لِأَنِّي بِوَصَايَاكَ آمَنْتُ. ٦٦ 66
Teach me proper discernment and understanding, for I have believed in your commandments.
قَبْلَ أَنْ أُذَلَّلَ أَنَا ضَلَلْتُ، أَمَّا ٱلْآنَ فَحَفِظْتُ قَوْلَكَ. ٦٧ 67
Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I observe your word.
صَالِحٌ أَنْتَ وَمُحْسِنٌ. عَلِّمْنِي فَرَائِضَكَ. ٦٨ 68
You are good, and you are one who does good; teach me your statutes.
ٱلْمُتَكَبِّرُونَ قَدْ لَفَّقُوا عَلَيَّ كَذِبًا، أَمَّا أَنَا فَبِكُلِّ قَلْبِي أَحْفَظُ وَصَايَاكَ. ٦٩ 69
The arrogant have smeared me with lies, but I keep your instructions with my whole heart.
سَمِنَ مِثْلَ ٱلشَّحْمِ قَلْبُهُمْ، أَمَّا أَنَا فَبِشَرِيعَتِكَ أَتَلَذَّذُ. ٧٠ 70
Their hearts are hardened, but I delight in your law.
خَيْرٌ لِي أَنِّي تَذَلَّلْتُ لِكَيْ أَتَعَلَّمَ فَرَائِضَكَ. ٧١ 71
It is good for me that I have suffered so that I would learn your statutes.
شَرِيعَةُ فَمِكَ خَيْرٌ لِي مِنْ أُلُوفِ ذَهَبٍ وَفِضَّةٍ. ٧٢ 72
Instruction from your mouth is more precious to me than thousands of pieces of gold and silver.
يَدَاكَ صَنَعَتَانِي وَأَنْشَأَتَانِي. فَهِّمْنِي فَأَتَعَلَّمَ وَصَايَاكَ. ٧٣ 73
Your hands have made and fashioned me; give me understanding so that I may learn your commandments.
مُتَّقُوكَ يَرَوْنَنِي فَيَفْرَحُونَ، لِأَنِّي ٱنْتَظَرْتُ كَلَامَكَ. ٧٤ 74
Those who honor you will be glad when they see me because I find hope in your word.
قَدْ عَلِمْتُ يَارَبُّ أَنَّ أَحْكَامَكَ عَدْلٌ، وَبِٱلْحَقِّ أَذْلَلْتَنِي. ٧٥ 75
I know, Yahweh, that your decrees are just, and that in faithfulness you afflicted me.
فَلْتَصِرْ رَحْمَتُكَ لِتَعْزِيَتِي، حَسَبَ قَوْلِكَ لِعَبْدِكَ. ٧٦ 76
Let your covenant faithfulness comfort me, as you promised your servant.
لِتَأْتِنِي مَرَاحِمُكَ فَأَحْيَا، لِأَنَّ شَرِيعَتَكَ هِيَ لَذَّتِي. ٧٧ 77
Show me compassion so that I may live, for your law is my delight.
لِيَخْزَ ٱلْمُتَكَبِّرُونَ لِأَنَّهُمْ زُورًا ٱفْتَرَوْا عَلَيَّ. أَمَّا أَنَا فَأُنَاجِي بِوَصَايَاكَ. ٧٨ 78
Let the proud be put to shame, for they have slandered me; but I will meditate on your instructions.
لِيَرْجِعْ إِلَيَّ مُتَّقُوكَ وَعَارِفُو شَهَادَاتِكَ. ٧٩ 79
May those who honor you turn to me, those who know your covenant decrees.
لِيَكُنْ قَلْبِي كَامِلًا فِي فَرَائِضِكَ لِكَيْلَا أَخْزَى. ٨٠ 80
May my heart be blameless with respect to your statutes so that I may not be put to shame.
تَاقَتْ نَفْسِي إِلَى خَلَاصِكَ. كَلَامَكَ ٱنْتَظَرْتُ. ٨١ 81
I faint with longing that you might rescue me! I hope in your word.
كَلَّتْ عَيْنَايَ مِنَ ٱلنَّظَرِ إِلَى قَوْلِكَ، فَأَقُولُ: «مَتَى تُعَزِّينِي؟». ٨٢ 82
My eyes long to see your promise; when will you comfort me?
لِأَنِّي قَدْ صِرْتُ كَزِقٍّ فِي ٱلدُّخَانِ، أَمَّا فَرَائِضُكَ فَلَمْ أَنْسَهَا. ٨٣ 83
For I have become like a wineskin in the smoke; I do not forget your statutes.
كَمْ هِيَ أَيَّامُ عَبْدِكَ؟ مَتَى تُجْرِي حُكْمًا عَلَى مُضْطَهِدِيَّ؟ ٨٤ 84
How long must your servant endure this; when will you judge those who persecute me?
ٱلْمُتَكَبِّرُونَ قَدْ كَرَوْا لِي حَفَائِرَ. ذَلِكَ لَيْسَ حَسَبَ شَرِيعَتِكَ. ٨٥ 85
The proud have dug pits for me, defying your law.
كُلُّ وَصَايَاكَ أَمَانَةٌ. زُورًا يَضْطَهِدُونَنِي. أَعِنِّي. ٨٦ 86
All your commandments are reliable; those people persecute me wrongfully; help me.
لَوْلَا قَلِيلٌ لَأَفْنَوْنِي مِنَ ٱلْأَرْضِ. أَمَّا أَنَا فَلَمْ أَتْرُكْ وَصَايَاكَ. ٨٧ 87
They have almost made an end to me on earth, but I do not reject your instructions.
حَسَبَ رَحْمَتِكَ أَحْيِنِي، فَأَحْفَظَ شَهَادَاتِ فَمِكَ. ٨٨ 88
By your steadfast love, keep me alive, so that I may obey your commands.
إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ يَارَبُّ كَلِمَتُكَ مُثَبَّتَةٌ فِي ٱلسَّمَاوَاتِ. ٨٩ 89
Yahweh, your word stands forever; your word is established firmly in heaven.
إِلَى دَوْرٍ فَدَوْرٍ أَمَانَتُكَ. أَسَّسْتَ ٱلْأَرْضَ فَثَبَتَتْ. ٩٠ 90
Your faithfulness lasts for all generations; you have established the earth, and it remains.
عَلَى أَحْكَامِكَ ثَبَتَتِ ٱلْيَوْمَ، لِأَنَّ ٱلْكُلَّ عَبِيدُكَ. ٩١ 91
All things continue to this day, just as you said in your righteous decrees, for all things are your servants.
لَوْ لَمْ تَكُنْ شَرِيعَتُكَ لَذَّتِي، لَهَلَكْتُ حِينَئِذٍ فِي مَذَلَّتِي. ٩٢ 92
If your law had not been my delight, I would have perished in my affliction.
إِلَى ٱلدَّهْرِ لَا أَنْسَى وَصَايَاكَ، لِأَنَّكَ بِهَا أَحْيَيْتَنِي. ٩٣ 93
I will never forget your instructions, for through them you have kept me alive.
لَكَ أَنَا فَخَلِّصْنِي، لِأَنِّي طَلَبْتُ وَصَايَاكَ. ٩٤ 94
I am yours; save me, for I seek your instructions.
إِيَّايَ ٱنْتَظَرَ ٱلْأَشْرَارُ لِيُهْلِكُونِي. بِشَهَادَاتِكَ أَفْطُنُ. ٩٥ 95
The wicked prepare to destroy me, but I will seek to understand your covenant decrees.
لِكُلِّ كَمَالٍ رَأَيْتُ حَدًّا، أَمَّا وَصِيَّتُكَ فَوَاسِعَةٌ جِدًّا. ٩٦ 96
I have seen that everything has its limits, but your commandments are broad, beyond limits.
كَمْ أَحْبَبْتُ شَرِيعَتَكَ! ٱلْيَوْمَ كُلَّهُ هِيَ لَهَجِي. ٩٧ 97
Oh how I love your law! It is my meditation all day long.
وَصِيَّتُكَ جَعَلَتْنِي أَحْكَمَ مِنْ أَعْدَائِي، لِأَنَّهَا إِلَى ٱلدَّهْرِ هِيَ لِي. ٩٨ 98
Your commandments make me wiser than my enemies, for your commandments are always with me.
أَكْثَرَ مِنْ كُلِّ مُعَلِّمِيَّ تَعَقَّلْتُ، لِأَنَّ شَهَادَاتِكَ هِيَ لَهَجِي. ٩٩ 99
I have more understanding than all my teachers, for I meditate on your covenant decrees.
أَكْثَرَ مِنَ ٱلشُّيُوخِ فَطِنْتُ، لِأَنِّي حَفِظْتُ وَصَايَاكَ. ١٠٠ 100
I understand more than those older than I am; this is because I have kept your instructions.
مِنْ كُلِّ طَرِيقِ شَرٍّ مَنَعْتُ رِجْلَيَّ، لِكَيْ أَحْفَظَ كَلَامَكَ. ١٠١ 101
I have kept my feet back from every evil path so that I might observe your word.
عَنْ أَحْكَامِكَ لَمْ أَمِلْ، لِأَنَّكَ أَنْتَ عَلَّمْتَنِي. ١٠٢ 102
I have not turned aside from your righteous decrees, for you have instructed me.
مَا أَحْلَى قَوْلَكَ لِحَنَكِي! أَحْلَى مِنَ ٱلْعَسَلِ لِفَمِي. ١٠٣ 103
How sweet are your words to my taste, yes, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
مِنْ وَصَايَاكَ أَتَفَطَّنُ، لِذَلِكَ أَبْغَضْتُ كُلَّ طَرِيقِ كَذِبٍ. ١٠٤ 104
Through your instructions I gain discernment; therefore I hate every false way.
سِرَاجٌ لِرِجْلِي كَلَامُكَ وَنُورٌ لِسَبِيلِي. ١٠٥ 105
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.
حَلَفْتُ فَأَبِرُّهُ، أَنْ أَحْفَظَ أَحْكَامَ بِرِّكَ. ١٠٦ 106
I have sworn and have confirmed it, that I will observe your righteous decrees.
تَذَلَّلْتُ إِلَى ٱلْغَايَةِ. يَارَبُّ، أَحْيِنِي حَسَبَ كَلَامِكَ. ١٠٧ 107
I am very afflicted; keep me alive, Yahweh, as you have promised in your word.
ٱرْتَضِ بِمَنْدُوبَاتِ فَمِي يَارَبُّ، وَأَحْكَامَكَ عَلِّمْنِي. ١٠٨ 108
Yahweh, please accept the freewill offerings of my mouth, and teach me your righteous decrees.
نَفْسِي دَائِمًا فِي كَفِّي، أَمَّا شَرِيعَتُكَ فَلَمْ أَنْسَهَا. ١٠٩ 109
My life is always in my hand, yet I do not forget your law.
ٱلْأَشْرَارُ وَضَعُوا لِي فَخًّا، أَمَّا وَصَايَاكَ فَلَمْ أَضِلَّ عَنْهَا. ١١٠ 110
The wicked have set a snare for me, but I have not strayed from your instructions.
وَرِثْتُ شَهَادَاتِكَ إِلَى ٱلدَّهْرِ، لِأَنَّهَا هِيَ بَهْجَةُ قَلْبِي. ١١١ 111
I claim your covenant decrees as my heritage forever, for they are the joy of my heart.
عَطَفْتُ قَلْبِي لِأَصْنَعَ فَرَائِضَكَ إِلَى ٱلدَّهْرِ إِلَى ٱلنِّهَايَةِ. ١١٢ 112
My heart is set on obeying your statutes forever to the very end.
ٱلْمُتَقَلِّبِينَ أَبْغَضْتُ، وَشَرِيعَتَكَ أَحْبَبْتُ. ١١٣ 113
I hate those who have a double mind, but I love your law.
سِتْرِي وَمِجَنِّي أَنْتَ. كَلَامَكَ ٱنْتَظَرْتُ. ١١٤ 114
You are my hiding place and my shield; I hope in your word.
ٱنْصَرِفُوا عَنِّي أَيُّهَا ٱلْأَشْرَارُ، فَأَحْفَظَ وَصَايَا إِلَهِي. ١١٥ 115
Get away from me, you evil doers, so that I may observe the commandments of my God.
ٱعْضُدْنِي حَسَبَ قَوْلِكَ فَأَحْيَا، وَلَا تُخْزِنِي مِنْ رَجَائِي. ١١٦ 116
Sustain me by your word so that I may live and not be ashamed of my hope.
أَسْنِدْنِي فَأَخْلُصَ، وَأُرَاعِيَ فَرَائِضَكَ دَائِمًا. ١١٧ 117
Support me, and I will be safe; I will always meditate on your statutes.
ٱحْتَقَرْتَ كُلَّ ٱلضَّالِّينَ عَنْ فَرَائِضِكَ، لِأَنَّ مَكْرَهُمْ بَاطِلٌ. ١١٨ 118
You reject all those who stray from your statutes, for those people are deceptive and unreliable.
كَزَغَلٍ عَزَلْتَ كُلَّ أَشْرَارِ ٱلْأَرْضِ، لِذَلِكَ أَحْبَبْتُ شَهَادَاتِكَ. ١١٩ 119
You remove all the wicked of the earth like slag; therefore I love your solemn commands.
قَدِ ٱقْشَعَرَّ لَحْمِي مِنْ رُعْبِكَ، وَمِنْ أَحْكَامِكَ جَزِعْتُ. ١٢٠ 120
My body trembles in fear of you, and I am afraid of your righteous decrees.
أَجْرَيْتُ حُكْمًا وَعَدْلًا. لَا تُسْلِمْنِي إِلَى ظَالِمِيَّ. ١٢١ 121
I do what is just and right; do not abandon me to my oppressors.
كُنْ ضَامِنَ عَبْدِكَ لِلْخَيْرِ، لِكَيْلَا يَظْلِمَنِي ٱلْمُسْتَكْبِرُونَ. ١٢٢ 122
Guarantee the welfare of your servant; do not let the proud oppress me.
كَلَّتْ عَيْنَايَ ٱشْتِيَاقًا إِلَى خَلَاصِكَ وَإِلَى كَلِمَةِ بِرِّكَ. ١٢٣ 123
My eyes grow tired as I wait for your salvation and for your righteous word.
ٱصْنَعْ مَعَ عَبْدِكَ حَسَبَ رَحْمَتِكَ، وَفَرَائِضَكَ عَلِّمْنِي. ١٢٤ 124
Show your servant your covenant faithfulness, and teach me your statutes.
عَبْدُكَ أَنَا. فَهِّمْنِي فَأَعْرِفَ شَهَادَاتِكَ. ١٢٥ 125
I am your servant; give me understanding so that I may know your covenant decrees.
إِنَّهُ وَقْتُ عَمَلٍ لِلرَّبِّ. قَدْ نَقَضُوا شَرِيعَتَكَ. ١٢٦ 126
It is time for Yahweh to act, for people have broken your law.
لِأَجْلِ ذَلِكَ أَحْبَبْتُ وَصَايَاكَ أَكْثَرَ مِنَ ٱلذَّهَبِ وَٱلْإِبْرِيزِ. ١٢٧ 127
Truly I love your commandments more than gold, more than fine gold.
لِأَجْلِ ذَلِكَ حَسِبْتُ كُلَّ وَصَايَاكَ فِي كُلِّ شَيْءٍ مُسْتَقِيمَةً. كُلَّ طَرِيقِ كَذِبٍ أَبْغَضْتُ. ١٢٨ 128
Therefore I carefully follow all your instructions, and I hate every path of falsehood.
عَجِيبَةٌ هِيَ شَهَادَاتُكَ، لِذَلِكَ حَفِظَتْهَا نَفْسِي. ١٢٩ 129
Your rules are wonderful, that is why I obey them.
فَتْحُ كَلَامِكَ يُنِيرُ، يُعَقِّلُ ٱلْجُهَّالَ. ١٣٠ 130
The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the untrained.
فَغَرْتُ فَمِي وَلَهَثْتُ، لِأَنِّي إِلَى وَصَايَاكَ ٱشْتَقْتُ. ١٣١ 131
I open my mouth and pant, for I long for your commandments.
ٱلْتَفِتْ إِلَيَّ وَٱرْحَمْنِي، كَحَقِّ مُحِبِّي ٱسْمِكَ. ١٣٢ 132
Turn to me and have mercy on me, as you always do for those who love your name.
ثَبِّتْ خُطُوَاتِي فِي كَلِمَتِكَ، وَلَا يَتَسَلَّطْ عَلَيَّ إِثْمٌ. ١٣٣ 133
Direct my footsteps by your word; do not let any sin rule me.
ٱفْدِنِي مِنْ ظُلْمِ ٱلْإِنْسَانِ، فَأَحْفَظَ وَصَايَاكَ. ١٣٤ 134
Redeem me from human oppression so that I may observe your instructions.
أَضِئْ بِوَجْهِكَ عَلَى عَبْدِكَ، وَعَلِّمْنِي فَرَائِضَكَ. ١٣٥ 135
Let your face shine on your servant, and teach me your statutes.
جَدَاوِلُ مِيَاهٍ جَرَتْ مِنْ عَيْنَيَّ، لِأَنَّهُمْ لَمْ يَحْفَظُوا شَرِيعَتَكَ. ١٣٦ 136
Streams of tears run down from my eyes because people do not observe your law.
بَارٌّ أَنْتَ يَارَبُّ، وَأَحْكَامُكَ مُسْتَقِيمَةٌ. ١٣٧ 137
You are righteous, Yahweh, and your decrees are fair.
عَدْلًا أَمَرْتَ بِشَهَادَاتِكَ، وَحَقًّا إِلَى ٱلْغَايَةِ. ١٣٨ 138
You have given your covenant decrees righteously and faithfully.
أَهْلَكَتْنِي غَيْرَتِي، لِأَنَّ أَعْدَائِي نَسُوا كَلَامَكَ. ١٣٩ 139
Anger has destroyed me because my adversaries forget your words.
كَلِمَتُكَ مُمَحَّصَةٌ جِدًّا، وَعَبْدُكَ أَحَبَّهَا. ١٤٠ 140
Your word has been tested very much, and your servant loves it.
صَغِيرٌ أَنَا وَحَقِيرٌ، أَمَّا وَصَايَاكَ فَلَمْ أَنْسَهَا. ١٤١ 141
I am insignificant and despised, yet I do not forget your instructions.
عَدْلُكَ عَدْلٌ إِلَى ٱلدَّهْرِ، وَشَرِيعَتُكَ حَقٌّ. ١٤٢ 142
Your justice is forever right, and your law is trustworthy.
ضِيْقٌ وَشِدَّةٌ أَصَابَانِي، أَمَّا وَصَايَاكَ فَهِيَ لَذَّاتِي. ١٤٣ 143
Though distress and anguish have found me, your commandments are still my delight.
عَادِلَةٌ شَهَادَاتُكَ إِلَى ٱلدَّهْرِ. فَهِّمْنِي فَأَحْيَا. ١٤٤ 144
Your covenant decrees are righteous forever; give me understanding that I may live.
صَرَخْتُ مِنْ كُلِّ قَلْبِي. ٱسْتَجِبْ لِي يَارَبُّ. فَرَائِضَكَ أَحْفَظُ. ١٤٥ 145
I cried out with my whole heart, “Answer me, Yahweh, I will keep your statutes.
دَعَوْتُكَ. خَلِّصْنِي، فَأَحْفَظَ شَهَادَاتِكَ. ١٤٦ 146
I call to you; save me, and I will observe your covenant decrees.”
تَقَدَّمْتُ فِي ٱلصُّبْحِ وَصَرَخْتُ. كَلَامَكَ ٱنْتَظَرْتُ. ١٤٧ 147
I rise before the dawn of the morning and cry for help. I hope in your words.
تَقَدَّمَتْ عَيْنَايَ ٱلْهُزُعَ، لِكَيْ أَلْهَجَ بِأَقْوَالِكَ. ١٤٨ 148
My eyes are open before the night watches change so that I might meditate on your word.
صَوْتِيَ ٱسْتَمِعْ حَسَبَ رَحْمَتِكَ. يَارَبُّ، حَسَبَ أَحْكَامِكَ أَحْيِنِي. ١٤٩ 149
Hear my voice in your covenant faithfulness; keep me alive, Yahweh, as you have promised in your righteous decrees.
ٱقْتَرَبَ ٱلتَّابِعُونَ ٱلرَّذِيلَةَ. عَنْ شَرِيعَتِكَ بَعُدُوا. ١٥٠ 150
Those who are persecuting me are coming closer to me, but they are far from your law.
قَرِيبٌ أَنْتَ يَارَبُّ، وَكُلُّ وَصَايَاكَ حَقٌّ. ١٥١ 151
You are near, Yahweh, and all your commandments are trustworthy.
مُنْذُ زَمَانٍ عَرَفْتُ مِنْ شَهَادَاتِكَ أَنَّكَ إِلَى ٱلدَّهْرِ أَسَّسْتَهَا. ١٥٢ 152
Long ago I learned from your covenant decrees that you had set them in place forever.
اُنْظُرْ إِلَى ذُلِّي وَأَنْقِذْنِي، لِأَنِّي لَمْ أَنْسَ شَرِيعَتَكَ. ١٥٣ 153
Look on my affliction and help me, for I do not forget your law.
أَحْسِنْ دَعْوَايَ. ١٥٤ 154
Plead my cause and redeem me; keep me, as you have promised in your word.
ٱلْخَلَاصُ بَعِيدٌ عَنِ ٱلْأَشْرَارِ، لِأَنَّهُمْ لَمْ يَلْتَمِسُوا فَرَائِضَكَ. ١٥٥ 155
Salvation is far from the wicked, for they do not love your statutes.
كَثِيرَةٌ هِيَ مَرَاحِمُكَ يَارَبُّ. حَسَبَ أَحْكَامِكَ أَحْيِنِي. ١٥٦ 156
Great are your merciful actions, Yahweh; keep me alive, as you always do.
كَثِيرُونَ مُضْطَهِدِيَّ وَمُضَايِقِيَّ، أَمَّا شَهَادَاتُكَ فَلَمْ أَمِلْ عَنْهَا. ١٥٧ 157
My persecutors and my foes are many, yet I have not turned from your covenant decrees.
رَأَيْتُ ٱلْغَادِرِينَ وَمَقَتُّ، لِأَنَّهُمْ لَمْ يَحْفَظُوا كَلِمَتَكَ. ١٥٨ 158
I view the treacherous with disgust because they do not keep your word.
ٱنْظُرْ أَنِّي أَحْبَبْتُ وَصَايَاكَ. يَارَبُّ، حَسَبَ رَحْمَتِكَ أَحْيِنِي. ١٥٩ 159
See how I love your instructions; keep me alive, Yahweh, as you have promised by your covenant faithfulness.
رَأْسُ كَلَامِكَ حَقٌّ، وَإِلَى ٱلدَّهْرِ كُلُّ أَحْكَامِ عَدْلِكَ. ١٦٠ 160
The essence of your word is truth; every one of your righteous decrees lasts forever.
رُؤَسَاءُ ٱضْطَهَدُونِي بِلَا سَبَبٍ، وَمِنْ كَلَامِكَ جَزِعَ قَلْبِي. ١٦١ 161
Princes persecute me without cause, but my heart stands in awe of your word.
أَبْتَهِجُ أَنَا بِكَلَامِكَ كَمَنْ وَجَدَ غَنِيمَةً وَافِرَةً. ١٦٢ 162
I rejoice at your word like one who finds great plunder.
أَبْغَضْتُ ٱلْكَذِبَ وَكَرِهْتُهُ، أَمَّا شَرِيعَتُكَ فَأَحْبَبْتُهَا. ١٦٣ 163
I hate and despise falsehood, but I love your law.
سَبْعَ مَرَّاتٍ فِي ٱلنَّهَارِ سَبَّحْتُكَ عَلَى أَحْكَامِ عَدْلِكَ. ١٦٤ 164
Seven times a day I praise you because of your righteous decrees.
سَلَامَةٌ جَزِيلَةٌ لِمُحِبِّي شَرِيعَتِكَ، وَلَيْسَ لَهُمْ مَعْثَرَةٌ. ١٦٥ 165
Great peace they have, those who love your law; nothing makes them stumble.
رَجَوْتُ خَلَاصَكَ يَارَبُّ، وَوَصَايَاكَ عَمِلْتُ. ١٦٦ 166
I hope for your salvation, Yahweh, and I obey your commandments.
حَفِظَتْ نَفْسِي شَهَادَاتِكَ، وَأُحِبُّهَا جِدًّا. ١٦٧ 167
I observe your solemn commands, and I love them greatly.
حَفِظْتُ وَصَايَاكَ وَشَهَادَاتِكَ، لِأَنَّ كُلَّ طُرُقِي أَمَامَكَ. ١٦٨ 168
I keep your instructions and your solemn commands, for you are aware of everything I do.
لِيَبْلُغْ صُرَاخِي إِلَيْكَ يَارَبُّ. حَسَبَ كَلَامِكَ فَهِّمْنِي. ١٦٩ 169
Listen to my cry for help, Yahweh; give me understanding into your word.
لِتَدْخُلْ طِلْبَتِي إِلَى حَضْرَتِكَ. كَكَلِمَتِكَ نَجِّنِي. ١٧٠ 170
May my plea come before you; help me, as you have promised in your word.
تُنَبِّعُ شَفَتَايَ تَسْبِيحًا إِذَا عَلَّمْتَنِي فَرَائِضَكَ. ١٧١ 171
May my lips pour out praise, for you teach me your statutes.
يُغَنِّي لِسَانِي بِأَقْوَالِكَ، لِأَنَّ كُلَّ وَصَايَاكَ عَدْلٌ. ١٧٢ 172
Let my tongue sing about your word, for all your commandments are right.
لِتَكُنْ يَدُكَ لِمَعُونَتِي، لِأَنَّنِي ٱخْتَرْتُ وَصَايَاكَ. ١٧٣ 173
May your hand help me, for I have chosen your instructions.
ٱشْتَقْتُ إِلَى خَلَاصِكَ يَارَبُّ، وَشَرِيعَتُكَ هِيَ لَذَّتِي. ١٧٤ 174
I long for your rescue, Yahweh, and your law is my delight.
لِتَحْيَ نَفْسِي وَتُسَبِّحَكَ، وَأَحْكَامُكَ لِتُعِنِّي. ١٧٥ 175
May I live and praise you, and may your righteous decrees help me.
ضَلَلْتُ، كَشَاةٍ ضَالَّةٍ. ٱطْلُبْ عَبْدَكَ، لِأَنِّي لَمْ أَنْسَ وَصَايَاكَ. ١٧٦ 176
I have wandered off like a lost sheep; seek your servant, for I have not forgotten your commandments.
