48 I will lift my hands to your commands, which I love, and I will meditate on your statutes. 49 ז (Zayin) Remember your word to your servant, for you have given me hope. 50 This is what comforts me in my trouble, for your promise revives me. 51 Arrogant people do nothing but scoff at me. Yet I do not turn aside from your law. 52 I remember your ancient regulations, O Lord, and console myself.
8 “Oh that my request would be realized, and that God would grant me what I long for! 9 And that God would be willing to crush me, that he would let loose his hand and kill me. 10 Then I would yet have my comfort, then I would rejoice, in spite of pitiless pain, for I have not concealed the words of the Holy One. 11 What is my strength, that I should wait? And what is my end, that I should prolong my life? 12 Is my strength like that of stones? Or is my flesh made of bronze?
