And so I follow all your instructions; I hate all wrong ways.
Your teachings are wonderful; I obey them with all my heart.
The explanation of your teachings gives light and brings wisdom to the ignorant.
In my desire for your commands I pant with open mouth.
Turn to me and have mercy on me as you do on all those who love you.
As you have promised, keep me from falling; don't let me be overcome by evil.
Save me from those who oppress me, so that I may obey your commands.
Bless me with your presence and teach me your laws.
My tears pour down like a river, because people do not obey your law.
You are righteous, Lord, and your laws are just.
The rules that you have given are completely fair and right.
