I find hope in your word.
119:111 I claim your rules as my permanent possession,
for they give me joy. 2
for your reliable promise to be fulfilled. 4
119:166 I hope for your deliverance, O Lord,
and I obey 5 your commands.
119:167 I keep your rules;
I love them greatly.
2 tn Heb “for the joy of my heart [are] they.”
3 tn Heb “my eyes fail for your deliverance.” The psalmist has intently kept his eyes open, looking for God to intervene, but now his eyes are watery and bloodshot, impairing his vision. See the similar phrase in v. 82.
4 tn Heb “and for the word of your faithfulness.”
5 tn Heb “do.”
