I am searching for a possuk beginning with a pei and ending with a lamed, to say in Shemona Esre, for name Pearl. I have found one in tehillim perek 7, but would love a different one if at all possible.

  • The Art Scroll siddur has a list at the back of the siddur. I do not have one here to use to check your particular letters. Commented Jan 19, 2016 at 14:25
  • You could try Bemidbar 13:7 if you don't mind reversing it: לְמַטֵּה יִשָּׂשכָר יִגְאָל בֶּן יוֹסֵף - otherwise your verse is it, besides for Loewian's 2nd suggestion. Commented Jan 19, 2016 at 16:06

    We should probably not have 22×22 of these questions. Maybe it should be closed as a duplicate of the one @DoubleAA has linked to.

From here, it seems there may only (?!) be that verse from Psalms (7:3):

פן יטרף כאריה נפשי פרק ואין מציל

If you're okay with the last word beginning with a ל (rather than ending with one), you could also use from אשת חיל (cited here):

פיה פתחה בחכמה ותורת חסד על לשונה

Or, if you're also okay with it being a quote from the Shabbat prayer service rather than an actual verse in Tanach:

פאר וכבוד נותנים לשמו

  • The pasuk in Tehillim is pointed to by the Art Scroll Hebrew English Sidur on page 926. Pages 922 - 926 have the list of letters used in the Ashkenaz nusach for all names with beginning and ending letters. Commented Jan 20, 2016 at 1:58
