A fascinating article can be found here. It matches closely to our studies here so we can see we are on the right track!!: http://www.biblicalarchaeology.org/daily/biblical-topics/bible-versions-and-translations/can-abecedaries-be-used-to-date-the-book-of-psalms/#
Some observations from the article include:
Let us look closely at Psalm 34. When we do, it becomes obvious that the psalm’s original acrostic was written with a pe/ayin sequence:
In verse 34:16 (English, verse 15) we are told:
“The eyes (עיני/ayin) of the Lord are on the righteous, / and his ears attentive to their cry.”
In verse 34:17 (English, verse 16) we are told:
“The face (פני/pe) of the Lord is set against evildoers, / to erase their names from the earth.”
Yet immediately following this, at 34:18 (English, verse 17), we are told without explanation:
“They cry out (צעקו/tzade) and the Lord hears, and saves them from all their troubles.”
Why should God listen to and save the evildoers, when we have just been told that he wants to erase their remembrance from the earth?
But if we make the assumption that pe preceded ayin here, the theological problem disappears and the sequence of verses makes perfect sense:
34:17: “The face (פני/pe) of the Lord is set against evildoers, / to erase their names from the earth.”
34:16: “The eyes (עיני/ayin) of the Lord are on the righteous, / and his ears attentive to their cry.”
34:18: “They cry out (צעקו/tzade) and the Lord hears, and saves them from all their troubles.”
The ones whom God listens to and saves are not the evildoers but the righteous ones!6
The likely original pe/ayin order in chapter 34 makes us suspect that the three other acrostics in the first book (= the same collection) might also have been composed with the pe/ayin order. Although this cannot yet be proven, there are strong arguments to support this. For example, in the acrostic that spans chapters 9 and 10, it is fairly clear that our text is corrupt, since the acrostic only includes 15 of the 22 letters. But many scholars believe that the words פיחו/pe (verse 10:7, second word) and עיניו/ayin (verse 10:8, third to last word) were once the first words of pe and ayin verses in the pe/ayin order in the original text.
It is very likely that, during earliest Israelite times, the Hebrew alphabetic order was exclusively pe/ayin, and that this was the order through the end of the First Temple period (c. 1000–586 B.C.E.).
Moreover, the Book of Lamentations, which probably dates very shortly thereafter, also follows the pe/ayin order in its acrostics.

Psalm 119: "This Psalm is what is called an acrostic psalm. An acrostic is where each verse begins with the next letter of the alphabet such as in the following example.
Apples are good
Berries are sweet
Cherries are round
Dandelions are yellow
Eggplants are large etc.

There are several Psalms like this. Psalm 119 is unique in that the first 8 verses all begin with the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet, the letter aleph. The next 8 verses all begin with the second letter of the Hebrew alphabet, the beyt. This is form of Hebrew poetry." (Jeff Benner: https://www.ancient-hebrew.org/faqs/bible.htm#acrostic1)
Shalom,
Matt

Here is some interesting information from Tim Puzak(DSST) on the Gimel:
The Dead Sea Scrolls are identified by a cave number, in this case a 11 for cave 11 and Q for Qumran. The next identification is that of a number of scrolls found within this cave, in this case “5”. This is followed by the name of the scroll, “Ps” denoting “Psalms” and an “a” being the “a”scroll. 11Q5 denotes cave 11 at Qumran where 5 scrolls were found. On our second example of Psalms 119 we see 4Q90 Psh. Cave 4, 90 scrolls, the h or 8th Psalms scroll found within the cave.
While the caves may at one time contained a complete Hebrew Bible (Tanakh), many have deteriorated. A complete Hebrew Bible has not remained from these caves. In this case, the Great Psalms scroll has beautifully survived with many sections complete.
We do find other Psalms scrolls in other caves. Scholars can compare scrolls one to another. From cave 11Q we find an overlapping section of Psalms 119.
On this meme, I have shown how each letter of the each line begins with a Gimmel. Additionally I have highlighted many of the legal terms and given some definition of them. One will also see a large section of the Great Psalms scroll, containing much of Psalms 119 and a fragment from cave 11.
