I am laid low in the dust;1 preserve my life2 according to your word.326
I recounted my ways and you answered me; teach me your decrees.427
Let me understand the teaching of your precepts; then I will meditate on your wonders.528
My soul is weary with sorrow;6 strengthen me7 according to your word.829
Keep me from deceitful ways;9 be gracious to me10 through your law.
I have chosen11 the way of truth;12 I have set my heart13 on your laws.
I hold fast14 to your statutes, O LORD; do not let me be put to shame.
I run in the path of your commands, for you have set my heart free.
Teach me,15 O LORD, to follow your decrees; then I will keep them to the end.
Give me understanding,16 and I will keep your law17 and obey it with all my heart.1835
Direct me19 in the path of your commands,20 for there I find delight.21
