How can a young person stay pure? By obeying your word and following its rules.
I have tried my best to find you -- don't let me wander from your commands.
I have hidden your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.
Blessed are you, O LORD; teach me your principles.
I have recited aloud all the laws you have given us.
I have rejoiced in your decrees as much as in riches.
I will study your commandments and reflect on your ways.
I will delight in your principles and not forget your word.
