I was wondering if the word for torah is used anywhere in the Psalms. If so, can you please tell me where exactly?

The word "Torat" (the Torah OF) appears 3 times: 19:8 37:31 119:72

V'torah (AND the Torah) 78:5

B'Torat (IN the Torah of) 119:1

M'Torat'cha (FROM YOUR Torah) 119:51, 94:12, 119:150

Toratecha/Torat'cha (YOUR Torah) 119:53, 55, 70, 77, 92, 97, 136, 153, 163, 174

K'Toratech (according to your Torah) 119:85

(There might be more...my search method changed)

78:5:

וַיָּקֶם עֵדוּת בְּיַעֲקֹב וְתוֹרָה שָׂם בְּיִשְׂרָאֵל אֲשֶׁר צִוָּה אֶת אֲבוֹתֵינוּ לְהוֹדִיעָם לִבְנֵיהֶם

A tip of my hat to Double AA, who mentioned this verse in a comment on the question. The word appears in other places in Psalms also, including a whole bunch of times in 119.

Variations of the word in the Masoretic Text appear 222 times among 213 verses, which include 36 instances within the Book of Psalms.

The software used to make this analysis was the Interlinear Scripture Analyzer, which is free.

    Note that the verse numbers in your list on the right are sometimes off by one (it uses Christian verse numbers).

  • @magicker72 - The software is careful to note the verse numbering in the Masoretic Text.
