'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'2 Happy are they that keep His testimonies, that seek Him with the whole heart.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'3 Yea, they do no unrighteousness; they walk in His ways.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000011-QINU`"'18 Open Thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of Thy law.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000012-QINU`"'19 I am a sojourner in the earth; hide not Thy commandments from me.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000013-QINU`"'20 My soul breaketh for the longing that it hath unto Thine ordinances at all times.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000014-QINU`"'21 Thou hast rebuked the proud that are cursed, that do err from Thy commandments.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000015-QINU`"'22 Take away from me reproach and contempt; for I have kept Thy testimonies.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000016-QINU`"'23 Even though princes sit and talk against me, thy servant doth meditate in Thy statutes.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000017-QINU`"'24 Yea, Thy testimonies are my delight, they are my counsellors.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001A-QINU`"'27 Make me to understand the way of Thy precepts, that I may talk of Thy wondrous works.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001B-QINU`"'28 My soul melteth away for heaviness; sustain me according unto Thy word.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001C-QINU`"'29 Remove from me the way of falsehood; and grant me Thy law graciously.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001D-QINU`"'30 I have chosen the way of faithfulness; Thine ordinances have I set before me.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001E-QINU`"'31 I cleave unto Thy testimonies; O HaShem, put me not to shame.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001F-QINU`"'32 I will run the way of Thy commandments, for Thou dost enlarge my heart.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000020-QINU`"'33 HE. Teach me, O HaShem, the way of Thy statutes; and I will keep it at every step.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000028-QINU`"'41 VAV. Let Thy mercies also come unto me, O HaShem, even Thy salvation, according to Thy word;

'"`UNIQ--named-00000029-QINU`"'42 That I may have an answer for him that taunteth me; for I trust in Thy word.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000002A-QINU`"'43 And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth; for I hope in Thine ordinances;

'"`UNIQ--named-0000002B-QINU`"'44 So shall I observe Thy law continually for ever and ever;

'"`UNIQ--named-0000002C-QINU`"'45 And I will walk at ease, for I have sought Thy precepts;

'"`UNIQ--named-0000002D-QINU`"'46 I will also speak of Thy testimonies before kings, and will not be ashamed.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000032-QINU`"'51 The proud have had me greatly in derision; yet have I not turned aside from Thy law.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000033-QINU`"'52 I have remembered Thine ordinances which are of old, O HaShem, and have comforted myself.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000034-QINU`"'53 Burning indignation hath taken hold upon me, because of the wicked that forsake Thy law.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000035-QINU`"'54 Thy statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimage.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000036-QINU`"'55 I have remembered Thy name, O HaShem, in the night, and have observed Thy law.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000037-QINU`"'56 This I have had, that I have kept Thy precepts.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000038-QINU`"'57 HETH. My portion is HaShem, I have said that I would observe Thy words.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000039-QINU`"'58 I have entreated Thy favour with my whole heart; be gracious unto me according to Thy word.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000003A-QINU`"'59 I considered my ways, and turned my feet unto Thy testimonies.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000003B-QINU`"'60 I made haste, and delayed not, to observe Thy commandments.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000003C-QINU`"'61 The bands of the wicked have enclosed me; but I have not forgotten Thy law.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000003D-QINU`"'62 At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto Thee because of Thy righteous ordinances.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000003E-QINU`"'63 I am a companion of all them that fear Thee, and of them that observe Thy precepts.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000003F-QINU`"'64 The earth, O HaShem, is full of Thy mercy; teach me Thy statutes.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000040-QINU`"'65 TETH. Thou hast dealt well with Thy servant, O HaShem, according unto Thy word.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000041-QINU`"'66 Teach me good discernment and knowledge; for I have believed Thy commandments.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000042-QINU`"'67 Before I was afflicted, I did err; but now I observe Thy word.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000043-QINU`"'68 Thou art good, and doest good; teach me Thy statutes.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000044-QINU`"'69 The proud have forged a lie against me; but I with my whole heart will keep Thy precepts.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000045-QINU`"'70 Their heart is gross like fat; but I delight in Thy law.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000046-QINU`"'71 It is good for me that I have been afflicted, in order that I might learn Thy statutes.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000047-QINU`"'72 The law of Thy mouth is better unto me than thousands of gold and silver.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000048-QINU`"'73 JOD. Thy hands have made me and fashioned me; give me understanding, that I may learn Thy commandments.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000049-QINU`"'74 They that fear Thee shall see me and be glad, because I have hope in Thy word.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000004A-QINU`"'75 I know, O HaShem, that Thy judgments are righteous, and that in faithfulness Thou hast afflicted me.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000004B-QINU`"'76 Let, I pray Thee, Thy lovingkindness be ready to comfort me, according to Thy promise unto Thy servant.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000004C-QINU`"'77 Let Thy tender mercies come unto me, that I may live; for Thy law is my delight.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000004D-QINU`"'78 Let the proud be put to shame, for they have distorted my cause with falsehood; but I will meditate in Thy precepts.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000004E-QINU`"'79 Let those that fear Thee return unto me, and they that know Thy testimonies.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000004F-QINU`"'80 Let my heart be undivided in Thy statutes, in order that I may not be put to shame.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000050-QINU`"'81 CAPH. My soul pineth for Thy salvation; in Thy word do I hope.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000051-QINU`"'82 Mine eyes fail for Thy word, saying: 'When wilt Thou comfort me?'

'"`UNIQ--named-00000052-QINU`"'83 For I am become like a wine-skin in the smoke; yet do I not forget Thy statutes.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000053-QINU`"'84 How many are the days of Thy servant? When wilt Thou execute judgment on them that persecute me?

'"`UNIQ--named-00000054-QINU`"'85 The proud have digged pits for me, which is not according to Thy law.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000055-QINU`"'86 All Thy commandments are faithful; they persecute me for nought; help Thou me.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000056-QINU`"'87 They had almost consumed me upon earth; but as for me, I forsook not Thy precepts.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000057-QINU`"'88 Quicken me after Thy lovingkindness, and I will observe the testimony of Thy mouth.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000058-QINU`"'89 LAMED. For ever, O HaShem, Thy word standeth fast in heaven.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000059-QINU`"'90 Thy faithfulness is unto all generations; Thou hast established the earth, and it standeth.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000005A-QINU`"'91 They stand this day according to Thine ordinances; for all things are Thy servants.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000005B-QINU`"'92 Unless Thy law had been my delight, I should then have perished in mine affliction.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000005C-QINU`"'93 I will never forget Thy precepts; for with them Thou hast quickened me.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000005D-QINU`"'94 I am Thine, save me; for I have sought Thy precepts.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000005E-QINU`"'95 The wicked have waited for me to destroy me; but I will consider Thy testimonies.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000005F-QINU`"'96 I have seen an end to every purpose; but Thy commandment is exceeding broad.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000060-QINU`"'97 MEM. O how love I Thy law! It is my meditation all the day.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000061-QINU`"'98 Thy commandments make me wiser than mine enemies: for they are ever with me.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000062-QINU`"'99 I have more understanding than all my teachers; for Thy testimonies are my meditation.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000063-QINU`"'100 I understand more than mine elders, because I have keep Thy precepts.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000064-QINU`"'101 I have refrained my feet from every evil way, in order that I might observe Thy word.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000065-QINU`"'102 I have not turned aside from Thine ordinances; for Thou hast instructed me.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000066-QINU`"'103 How sweet are Thy words unto my palate! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!

'"`UNIQ--named-00000067-QINU`"'104 From Thy precepts I get understanding; therefore I hate every false way.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000068-QINU`"'105 NUN. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000069-QINU`"'106 I have sworn, and have confirmed it, to observe Thy righteous ordinances.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000006A-QINU`"'107 I am afflicted very much; quicken me, O HaShem, according unto Thy word.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000006B-QINU`"'108 Accept, I beseech Thee, the freewill-offerings of my mouth, O HaShem, and teach me Thine ordinances.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000006C-QINU`"'109 My soul is continually in my hand; yet have I not forgotten Thy law.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000006D-QINU`"'110 The wicked have laid a snare for me; yet went I not astray from Thy precepts.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000006E-QINU`"'111 Thy testimonies have I taken as a heritage for ever; for they are the rejoicing of my heart.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000006F-QINU`"'112 I have inclined my heart to perform Thy statutes, for ever, at every step.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000070-QINU`"'113 SAMECH. I hate them that are of a double mind; but Thy law do I love.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000071-QINU`"'114 Thou art my covert and my shield; in Thy word do I hope.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000072-QINU`"'115 Depart from me, ye evildoers; that I may keep the commandments of my G-d.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000073-QINU`"'116 Uphold me according unto Thy word, that I may live; and put me not to shame in my hope.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000074-QINU`"'117 Support Thou me, and I shall be saved; and I will occupy myself with Thy statutes continually.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000075-QINU`"'118 Thou hast made light of all them that err from Thy statutes; for their deceit is vain.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000076-QINU`"'119 Thou puttest away all the wicked of the earth like dross; therefore I love Thy testimonies.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000077-QINU`"'120 My flesh shuddereth for fear of Thee; and I am afraid of Thy judgments.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000078-QINU`"'121 AIN. I have done justice and righteousness; leave me not to mine oppressors.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000079-QINU`"'122 Be surety for Thy servant for good; let not the proud oppress me.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000007A-QINU`"'123 Mine eyes fail for Thy salvation, and for Thy righteous word.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000007B-QINU`"'124 Deal with Thy servant according unto Thy mercy, and teach me Thy statutes.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000007C-QINU`"'125 I am Thy servant, give me understanding, that I may know Thy testimonies.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000007D-QINU`"'126 It is time for HaShem to work; they have made void Thy law.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000007E-QINU`"'127 Therefore I love Thy commandments above gold, yea, above fine gold.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000007F-QINU`"'128 Therefore I esteem all Thy precepts concerning all things to be right; every false way I hate.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000080-QINU`"'129 PE. Thy testimonies are wonderful; therefore doth my soul keep them.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000081-QINU`"'130 The opening of Thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000082-QINU`"'131 I opened wide my mouth, and panted; for I longed for Thy commandments.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000083-QINU`"'132 Turn Thee towards me, and be gracious unto me, as is Thy wont to do unto those that love Thy name.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000084-QINU`"'133 Order my footsteps by Thy word; and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000085-QINU`"'134 Redeem me from the oppression of man, and I will observe Thy precepts.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000086-QINU`"'135 Make Thy face to shine upon Thy servant; and teach me Thy statutes.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000087-QINU`"'136 Mine eyes run down with rivers of water, because they observe not Thy law.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000088-QINU`"'137 TZADE. Righteous art Thou, O HaShem, and upright are Thy judgments.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000089-QINU`"'138 Thou hast commanded Thy testimonies in righteousness and exceeding faithfulness.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000008A-QINU`"'139 My zeal hath undone me, because mine adversaries have forgotten Thy words.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000008B-QINU`"'140 Thy word is tried to the uttermost, and Thy servant loveth it.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000008C-QINU`"'141 I am small and despised; yet have I not forgotten Thy precepts.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000008D-QINU`"'142 Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and Thy law is the truth.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000008E-QINU`"'143 Trouble and anguish have overtaken me; yet Thy commandments are my delight.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000008F-QINU`"'144 Thy testimonies are righteous for ever; give me understanding, and I shall live.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000090-QINU`"'145 KOPH. I have called with my whole heart; answer me, O HaShem; I will keep Thy statutes.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000091-QINU`"'146 I have called Thee, save me, and I will observe Thy testimonies.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000092-QINU`"'147 I rose early at dawn, and cried; I hoped in Thy word.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000093-QINU`"'148 Mine eyes forestalled the night-watches, that I might meditate in Thy word.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000094-QINU`"'149 Hear my voice according unto Thy lovingkindness; quicken me, O HaShem, as Thou art wont.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000095-QINU`"'150 They draw nigh that follow after wickedness; they are far from Thy law.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000096-QINU`"'151 Thou art nigh, O HaShem; and all Thy commandments are truth.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000097-QINU`"'152 Of old have I known from Thy testimonies that Thou hast founded them for ever.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000098-QINU`"'153 RESH. O see mine affliction, and rescue me; for I do not forget Thy law.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000099-QINU`"'154 Plead Thou my cause, and redeem me; quicken me according to Thy word.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000009A-QINU`"'155 Salvation is far from the wicked; for they seek not Thy statutes.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000009B-QINU`"'156 Great are Thy compassions, O HaShem; quicken me as Thou art wont.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000009C-QINU`"'157 Many are my persecutors and mine adversaries; yet have I not turned aside from Thy testimonies.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000009D-QINU`"'158 I beheld them that were faithless, and strove with them; because they observed not Thy word.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000009E-QINU`"'159 O see how I love Thy precepts; quicken me, O HaShem, according to Thy lovingkindness.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000009F-QINU`"'160 The beginning of Thy word is truth; and all Thy righteous ordinance endureth for ever.

'"`UNIQ--named-000000A0-QINU`"'161 SCHIN. Princes have persecuted me without a cause; but my heart standeth in awe of Thy words.

'"`UNIQ--named-000000A1-QINU`"'162 I rejoice at Thy word, as one that findeth great spoil.

'"`UNIQ--named-000000A2-QINU`"'163 I hate and abhor falsehood; Thy law do I love.

'"`UNIQ--named-000000A3-QINU`"'164 Seven times a day do I praise Thee, because of Thy righteous ordinances.
