I hate and abhor1 falsehood but I love your law.2164
Seven times a day I praise you for your righteous laws.3165
Great peace4 have they who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble.5166
I wait for your salvation,6 O LORD, and I follow your commands.
I obey your statutes, for I love them7 greatly.
I obey your precepts8 and your statutes,9 for all my ways are known10 to you.
May my cry come11 before you, O LORD; give me understanding12 according to your word.13170
May my supplication come14 before you; deliver me15 according to your promise.16171
May my lips overflow with praise,17 for you teach me18 your decrees.
May my tongue sing19 of your word, for all your commands are righteous.20173
May your hand be ready to help21 me, for I have chosen22 your precepts.
