|New International Version (© 2011)|
My soul is consumed with longing for your laws at all times.
King James Bible
My soul breaketh for the longing that it hath unto thy judgments at all times.
American Standard Version
My soul breaketh for the longing That it hath unto thine ordinances at all times.
Young's Literal Translation
Broken hath my soul for desire Unto Thy judgments at all times.
Psalm 119:20 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
My soul breaketh - We have a similar expression: It broke my heart, That is heart-breaking, She died of a broken heart. It expresses excessive longing, grievous disappointment, hopeless love, accumulated sorrow. By this we may see the hungering and thirsting which the psalmist had after righteousness, often mingled with much despondency.
