Blessed are they whose ways are blameless,1 who walk2 according to the law of the LORD.32
Blessed4 are they who keep his statutes5 and seek him6 with all their heart.73
They do nothing wrong;8 they walk in his ways.94
You have laid down precepts10 that are to be fully obeyed.115
Oh, that my ways were steadfast in obeying your decrees!126
Then I would not be put to shame13 when I consider all your commands.147
I will praise you with an upright heart as I learn your righteous laws.158
I will obey your decrees; do not utterly forsake me.16
How can a young man keep his way pure?17 By living according to your word.1810
I seek you with all my heart;19 do not let me stray from your commands.2011
I have hidden your word in my heart21 that I might not sin22 against you.
Praise be23 to you, O LORD; teach me24 your decrees.2513
With my lips I recount all the laws that come from your mouth.2614
I rejoice in following your statutes27 as one rejoices in great riches.
I meditate on your precepts28 and consider your ways.
I delight29 in your decrees; I will not neglect your word.
Do good to your servant,30 and I will live; I will obey your word.3118
Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law.
I am a stranger on earth;32 do not hide your commands from me.
My soul is consumed33 with longing for your laws34 at all times.
You rebuke the arrogant,35 who are cursed36 and who stray37 from your commands.
Remove from me scorn38 and contempt, for I keep your statutes.3923
Though rulers sit together and slander me, your servant will meditate on your decrees.
Your statutes are my delight; they are my counselors.
