I long to obey your commandments! Renew my life with your goodness.
LORD, give to me your unfailing love, the salvation that you promised me.
Then I will have an answer for those who taunt me, for I trust in your word.
Do not snatch your word of truth from me, for my only hope is in your laws.
I will keep on obeying your law forever and forever.
I will walk in freedom, for I have devoted myself to your commandments.
I will speak to kings about your decrees, and I will not be ashamed.
How I delight in your commands! How I love them!
I honor and love your commands. I meditate on your principles.
Remember your promise to me, for it is my only hope.
Your promise revives me; it comforts me in all my troubles.
