Even when princes sit and plot against me, your servant meditates on your laws.
Also your instructions are my delight; they are my counselors.
(Dalet) I lie prostrate in the dust; revive me, in keeping with your word.
I told you of my ways, and you answered me; teach me your laws.
Make me understand the way of your precepts, and I will meditate on your wonders.
I am melting away from anxiety and grief; renew my strength, in keeping with your word.
Keep deceitful ways far from me, and favor me with your Torah.
I choose the way of trust; I set your rulings [before me].
I cling to your instruction; ADONAI, don't let me be put to shame!
I will run the way of your mitzvot, for you have broadened my understanding.
(Heh) Teach me, ADONAI, the way of your laws; keeping them will be its own reward for me.
