With my lips I recount all the laws that come from your mouth.114
I rejoice in following your statutes2 as one rejoices in great riches.
I meditate on your precepts3 and consider your ways.
I delight4 in your decrees; I will not neglect your word.
Do good to your servant,5 and I will live; I will obey your word.618
Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law.
I am a stranger on earth;7 do not hide your commands from me.
My soul is consumed8 with longing for your laws9 at all times.
You rebuke the arrogant,10 who are cursed11 and who stray12 from your commands.
Remove from me scorn13 and contempt, for I keep your statutes.1423
Though rulers sit together and slander me, your servant will meditate on your decrees.
