★ Psalm 119:153-160 — ר Resh
— Psalm 119:153-160 (NIV) —
Look on my suffering and deliver me, for I have not forgotten your law.
Defend my cause and redeem me; preserve my life according to your promise.
Salvation is far from the wicked, for they do not seek out your decrees.
Your compassion, Lord, is great; preserve my life according to your laws.
Many are the foes who persecute me, but I have not turned from your statutes.
I look on the faithless with loathing, for they do not obey your word.
See how I love your precepts; preserve my life, Lord, in accordance with your love.
All your words are true; all your righteous laws are eternal.
