May my cry come1 before you, O LORD; give me understanding2 according to your word.3170
May my supplication come4 before you; deliver me5 according to your promise.6171
May my lips overflow with praise,7 for you teach me8 your decrees.
May my tongue sing9 of your word, for all your commands are righteous.10173
May your hand be ready to help11 me, for I have chosen12 your precepts.
I long for your salvation,13 O LORD, and your law is my delight.14175
Let me live15 that I may praise you, and may your laws sustain me.
I have strayed like a lost sheep.16 Seek your servant, for I have not forgotten17 your commands.
