Teach me,1 O LORD, to follow your decrees; then I will keep them to the end.
Give me understanding,2 and I will keep your law3 and obey it with all my heart.435
Direct me5 in the path of your commands,6 for there I find delight.736
Turn my heart8 toward your statutes and not toward selfish gain.937
Turn my eyes away from worthless things; preserve my life10 according to your word.a1138
Fulfill your promise12 to your servant, so that you may be feared.
Take away the disgrace13 I dread, for your laws are good.
How I long14 for your precepts! Preserve my life15 in your righteousness.
