There's an appendix in my siddur titled "Verses for People's Names." Everyone has a special verse based on the first and last letters of that person's name. I found an online version for others here to use:

https://web.archive.org/web/20140803...ticles/138.htm

Since my letters are ר and ל this is the verse that I got (Devarim 32:39): See now that it is I! I am the One, and there is no god like Me! I cause death and grant life. I strike, but I heal, and no one can rescue from My Hand!

What did you get? Do you think it suits you?

I just realized that maybe I should have explained how that page I linked works.

When you scroll down a little, you'll get to the verses listed alphabetically in Hebrew. To the right of each verse you'll see a letter combination: Alef-Alef, Alef-Bet, Alef-Gimel, and so on. Each letter combination points to the biblical verse that begins with the first letter of that combination, and ends with the last letter of that combination.

So, if you want to find the matching Biblical verse for the name "David," you look for the letter combination of Dalet-Dalet (first and last letter of "David"). That takes you to Psalm 105:4: Search for the Lord and His might; seek His presence constantly. Which in Hebrew starts and ends with the same letters as those in the name David.

If anybody wants help finding their name verse, I'll be happy to give it.

Sure, Chana. Your name begins with the letter chet (ח) and ends with the letter he (ה). Here is your special name verse:

Strengthen yourselves, and He will give your heart courage, all who hope to the Lord. Psalms 31:25
https://www.chabad.org/library/bible_cdo/aid/16252#v25

Do you think this verse that goes with your name suits you?

Reuven begins with the letter resh and ends with the letter nun. So here's your verse that begins and ends with those letters:

The first one to Zion, behold, behold them, and for Jerusalem I will give a herald. Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 41:27

Using the name Richard, you get a verse that begins with the letter resh, and ends with the letter dalet:

The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and with much kindness. -- Tehillim (Psalms) 103:8
