I am always overwhelmed with a desire for your regulations.
You rebuke the arrogant; those who wander from your commands are cursed.
Don’t let them scorn and insult me, for I have obeyed your laws.
Even princes sit and speak against me, but I will meditate on your decrees.
Your laws please me; they give me wise advice.
I lie in the dust; revive me by your word.
I told you my plans, and you answered. Now teach me your decrees.
Help me understand the meaning of your commandments, and I will meditate on your wonderful deeds.
I weep with sorrow; encourage me by your word.
Keep me from lying to myself; give me the privilege of knowing your instructions.
I have chosen to be faithful; I have determined to live by your regulations.
