Even though influential people plot against me, I reflect on your laws.
Indeed, your written instructions make me happy. They are my best friends.
I am close to death. Give me a new life as you promised.
I told you what I have done, and you answered me. Teach me your laws.
Help me understand your guiding principles so that I may reflect on your miracles.
I am drowning in tears. Strengthen me as you promised.
Turn me away from a life of lies. Graciously provide me with your teachings.
I have chosen a life of faithfulness. I have set your regulations in front of me.
I have clung tightly to your written instructions. O LORD, do not let me be put to shame.
I will eagerly pursue your commandments because you continue to increase my understanding.
Teach me, O LORD, how to live by your laws, and I will obey them to the end.
