I have more understanding than the elders, for I obey your precepts.1101
I have kept my feet2 from every evil path so that I might obey your word.3102
I have not departed from your laws,4 for you yourself have taught5 me.
How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey6 to my mouth!7104
I gain understanding8 from your precepts; therefore I hate every wrong path.9
Your word is a lamp10 to my feet and a light11 for my path.
I have taken an oath12 and confirmed it, that I will follow your righteous laws.13107
I have suffered much; preserve my life,14 O LORD, according to your word.
Accept, O LORD, the willing praise of my mouth,15 and teach me your laws.16109
Though I constantly take my life in my hands,17 I will not forget18 your law.
The wicked have set a snare19 for me, but I have not strayed20 from your precepts.
