My soul is laid low in the dust. Revive me according to your word!

Young's Literal Translation
Daleth. Cleaved to the dust hath my soul, Quicken me according to Thy word.

Psalm 119:25 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

My soul cleaveth unto the dust - It would be best to translate נפשי naphshi, my life; and then cleaving to the dust may imply an apprehension of approaching death; and this agrees best with the petition.

Quicken thou me - חיני chaiyeni, "make me alive." Keep me from going down into the dust.
