Look down on me with love; teach me all your principles.
Rivers of tears gush from my eyes because people disobey your law.
O LORD, you are righteous, and your decisions are fair.
Your decrees are perfect; they are entirely worthy of our trust.
I am overwhelmed with rage, for my enemies have disregarded your words.
Your promises have been thoroughly tested; that is why I love them so much.
I am insignificant and despised, but I don't forget your commandments.
Your justice is eternal, and your law is perfectly true.
As pressure and stress bear down on me, I find joy in your commands.
Your decrees are always fair; help me to understand them, that I may live.
I pray with all my heart; answer me, LORD! I will obey your principles.
