The rulers meet and plot against me, but I will study your teachings.
Your instructions give me pleasure; they are my advisers.
I lie defeated in the dust; revive me, as you have promised.
I confessed all I have done, and you answered me; teach me your ways.
Help me to understand your laws, and I will meditate on your wonderful teachings. a28
I am overcome by sorrow; strengthen me, as you have promised.
Keep me from going the wrong way, and in your goodness teach me your law.
I have chosen to be obedient; I have paid attention to your judgments.
I have followed your instructions, Lord; don't let me be put to shame.
I will eagerly obey your commands, because you will give me more understanding.
Teach me, Lord, the meaning of your laws, and I will obey them at all times.
