Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the universe, who has sanctified us with your commandments, and commanded us concerning the counting of the Omer.

Psalm 119:57-64(Sundown, May 22)

Adonai is my portion. I promised to guard Your words.

I have entreated Your favor with all my heart. Be gracious to me according to Your word.  I have considered my ways and turned my feet back to Your testimonies.  I hasten and do not delay to obey Your mitzvot.  The ropes of the wicked are coiled around me, but I did not forget Your Torah.  At midnight I rise to praise You, because of Your righteous rulings.  I am a companion of all who fear You, of those who observe Your precepts.  The earth is full of Your lovingkindness. Adonai—teach me Your decrees.

29

Psalm 119:49-56(Sundown, May 21)

Remember the word to Your servant, on which You have made me hope.  My comfort in my affliction is this: Your word has kept me alive.  The arrogant have viciously ridiculed me, yet I did not turn away from Your Torah.  I remember Your judgments from of old, Adonai, and comfort myself.  Burning indignation grips me, because of the wicked who forsake Your Torah.  Your decrees have become my songs in the house where I dwell.

In the night I remember Your Name, Adonai, and keep watching over Your Torah.  This is my own: that I keep Your precepts.

28

Psalm 119:41-48 (Sundown, May 20)

May Your lovingkindnesses come to me, Adonai— Your salvation according to Your word—so I may answer the one taunting me, for I trust in Your word.  Never snatch out of my mouth a word of truth, for I hope in Your judgments.  So I may always keep Your Torah, forever and ever,  and walk about in freedom. For I have sought Your precepts.  I will speak of Your testimonies before kings, and never be ashamed.  I delight in Your mitzvot, which I love.  I reach out my hands for Your mitzvot, which I love, and meditate on Your decrees.
