Young's Literal Translation
Trembled from Thy fear hath my flesh, And from Thy judgments I have been afraid!
Psalm 119:120 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
My flesh trembleth for fear of thee - I know thou art a just and holy God: I know thou requirest truth in the inner parts. I know that thou art a Spirit, and that they who worship thee must worship thee in spirit and in truth; and I am often alarmed lest I fall short. It is only an assurance of my interest in thy mercy that can save me from distressing fears and harassing doubts. It is our privilege to know we are in God's favor; and it is not less so to maintain a continual filial fear of offending him. A true conception of God's justice and mercy begets reverence.

fear and trembling seized me and made all my bones shake.
Serve the LORD with fear and celebrate his rule with trembling.
Fear and trembling have beset me; horror has overwhelmed me.
Rulers persecute me without cause, but my heart trembles at your word.
Has not my hand made all these things, and so they came into being?" declares the LORD. "These are the ones I look on with favor: those who are humble and contrite in spirit, and who tremble at my word.
Should you not fear me?" declares the LORD. "Should you not tremble in my presence? I made the sand a boundary for the sea, an everlasting barrier it cannot cross. The waves may roll, but they cannot prevail; they may roar, but they cannot cross it.
