ע Ayin

121 I have done justice and righteousness;

Do not leave me to my oppressors.

122 Be qsurety 6for Your servant for good;

Do not let the proud oppress me.

123 My eyes fail from seeking Your salvation

And Your righteous word.

124 Deal with Your servant according to Your mercy,

And teach me Your statutes.

125 rI am Your servant;

Give me understanding,

That I may know Your testimonies.

126 It is time for You to act, O Lord,

For they have 7regarded Your law as void.

127 sTherefore I love Your commandments

More than gold, yes, than fine gold!

128 Therefore all Your precepts concerning all things

I consider to be right;

I hate every false way.


About The New King James Version

The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
