LORD, how great is your mercy; in your justice, give me back my life.
Many persecute and trouble me, yet I have not swerved from your decrees.
I hate these traitors because they care nothing for your word.
See how I love your commandments, LORD. Give back my life because of your unfailing love.
All your words are true; all your just laws will stand forever.
Powerful people harass me without cause, but my heart trembles only at your word.
I rejoice in your word like one who finds a great treasure.
I hate and abhor all falsehood, but I love your law.
I will praise you seven times a day because all your laws are just.
Those who love your law have great peace and do not stumble.
I long for your salvation, LORD, so I have obeyed your commands.
