Your hands have made me and set me in place. Help me understand so I can learn your commandments.
Then those who honor you will see me and be glad because I have waited for your promise.
LORD, I know that your rules are right and that you rightly made me suffer.
Please let your faithful love comfort me, according to what you've said to your servant.
Let your compassion come to me so I can live again, because your Instruction is my joy!
But let the arrogant be ashamed because they oppressed me with lies— meanwhile, I will be contemplating your precepts!
Let the people who honor you come back to me; let those who know your precepts return to me.
Let my heart be blameless in your statutes so that I am not put to shame.
