Keep me from deceitful ways;1 be gracious to me2 through your law.
I have chosen3 the way of truth;4 I have set my heart5 on your laws.
I hold fast6 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,7 O LORD, to follow your decrees; then I will keep them to the end.
Give me understanding,8 and I will keep your law9 and obey it with all my heart.1035
Direct me11 in the path of your commands,12 for there I find delight.1336
Turn my heart14 toward your statutes and not toward selfish gain.1537
Turn my eyes away from worthless things; preserve my life16 according to your word.a1738
Fulfill your promise18 to your servant, so that you may be feared.
Take away the disgrace19 I dread, for your laws are good.
