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