My soul is weary with sorrow;1 strengthen me2 according to your word.329
Keep me from deceitful ways;4 be gracious to me5 through your law.
I have chosen6 the way of truth;7 I have set my heart8 on your laws.
I hold fast9 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,10 O LORD, to follow your decrees; then I will keep them to the end.
Give me understanding,11 and I will keep your law12 and obey it with all my heart.1335
Direct me14 in the path of your commands,15 for there I find delight.1636
Turn my heart17 toward your statutes and not toward selfish gain.1837
Turn my eyes away from worthless things; preserve my life19 according to your word.a2038
Fulfill your promise21 to your servant, so that you may be feared.
