Psalm 119 – Gimel

(Gimel is the third letter of the Hebrew alphabet)

Do good to me, your servant and I will live.

I will obey Your word.

Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in Your law.

I am not a stranger on earth – I am familiar with You.

Don’t hide Your word from me.

My soul is consumed with longing for Your word at all times – it’s all I think about.

You rebuke the arrogant. They stray from Your word and are cursed. I keep Your word – remove scorn and contempt from me – treat me better than the arrogant.

Though rulers sit together and slander me, I will meditate on Your word. No matter what those around me are doing or saying, Your word will be the center of my attention.

Your word is my delight.

Your word is my counselor and gives me advice.
