97 Lord, I really love your law! All day long I spend time thinking about it. 97 Oh, how I love your law! I meditate on it all day long.
98 Your commands make me wiser than my enemies, because your commands are always in my heart. 98 Your commands make me wiser than my enemies, for they are ever with me.
99 I know more than all of my teachers do, because I spend time thinking about your covenant laws. 99 I have more insight than all my teachers, for I meditate on your statutes.
100 I understand more than the elders do, because I obey your rules. 100 I have more understanding than the elders, for I obey your precepts.
101 I've kept my feet from every path that sinners take so that I might obey your word. 101 I have kept my feet from every evil path so that I might obey your word.
102 I haven't turned away from your laws, because you yourself have taught me. 102 I have not departed from your laws, for you yourself have taught me.
103 Your words are very sweet to my taste! They are sweeter than honey to me. 103 How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
104 I gain understanding from your rules. So I hate every path that sinners take. 104 I gain understanding from your precepts; therefore I hate every wrong path.
