ר Resh153Look on my suffering and deliver me, for I have not forgotten your law.154Defend my cause and redeem me; preserve my life according to your promise.155Salvation is far from the wicked, for they do not seek out your decrees.156Your compassion, Lord, is great; preserve my life according to your laws.157Many are the foes who persecute me, but I have not turned from your statutes.158I look on the faithless with loathing, for they do not obey your word.159See how I love your precepts; preserve my life, Lord, in accordance with your love.160All your words are true; all your righteous laws are eternal.
