You have treated your servant well, LORD, according to your promise.
Teach me knowledge and good judgment because I've put my trust in your commandments.
Before I suffered, I took the wrong way, but now I do what you say.
You are good and you do good. Teach me your statutes!
The arrogant cover me with their lies, but I guard your precepts with all my heart.
Their hearts are unfeeling, like blubber, but I rejoice in your Instruction.
My suffering was good for me, because through it I learned your statutes.
The Instruction you've given to me is better than thousands of pieces of gold and silver!
