King James Bible

Darby Bible Translation
I cleave unto thy testimonies; Jehovah, let me not be ashamed.

World English Bible
I cling to your statutes, Yahweh. Don't let me be disappointed.

Young's Literal Translation
I have adhered to Thy testimonies, O Jehovah, put me not to shame.

Psalm 119:31 Parallel
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

I have stuck - דבקתי dabakti, I have cleaved to, been glued to, them: the same word as in Psalm 119:25. My soul cleaves as much to thy testimonies, as my life has cleaved to the dust.

O Lord, put me not to shame - Let my sins and follies be blotted out by thy mercy; and so hide and cover them that they shall never appear, either in this or the coming world, to my shame and confusion! How many need to be importunate with God in this prayer!

Therefore I esteem all Thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way.' --PSALM cxix. 126-128.

We cannot ignore the extent and severity of the opposition to the very idea of revelation, even if we would;

[255] In this place He also renders the cause of His death: for His descent into hell was the salvation of them that had passed away.
