Accept, O LORD, the willing praise of my mouth,1 and teach me your laws.2109
Though I constantly take my life in my hands,3 I will not forget4 your law.
The wicked have set a snare5 for me, but I have not strayed6 from your precepts.
Your statutes are my heritage forever; they are the joy of my heart.7112
My heart is set8 on keeping your decrees to the very end.9113
I hate double-minded men,10 but I love your law.11114
You are my refuge and my shield;12 I have put my hope13 in your word.
Away from me,14 you evildoers, that I may keep the commands of my God!
Sustain me15 according to your promise,16 and I will live; do not let my hopes be dashed.17117
Uphold me,18 and I will be delivered;19 I will always have regard for your decrees.20118
You reject all who stray21 from your decrees, for their deceitfulness is in vain.
