You made me and formed me with your own hands. Give me understanding so that I can learn your commands.
May those who have respect for you be filled with joy when they see me. I have put my hope in your word.
Lord, I know that your laws are right. You were faithful to your promise when you made me suffer.
May your faithful love comfort me as you have promised me.
Show me your tender love so that I can live. I take delight in your law.
Proud people have treated me badly without any reason. May they be put to shame. I will spend time thinking about your rules.
May those who have respect for you come to me. Then I can teach them your covenant laws.
May my heart be without blame as I follow your orders. Then I won't be put to shame.
