Turn my heart1 toward your statutes and not toward selfish gain.237
Turn my eyes away from worthless things; preserve my life3 according to your word.a438
Fulfill your promise5 to your servant, so that you may be feared.
Take away the disgrace6 I dread, for your laws are good.
How I long7 for your precepts! Preserve my life8 in your righteousness.
May your unfailing love9 come to me, O LORD, your salvation according to your promise;1042
then I will answer11 the one who taunts me,12 for I trust in your word.
Do not snatch the word of truth from my mouth,13 for I have put my hope14 in your laws.
I will always obey your law,15 for ever and ever.
I will walk about in freedom, for I have sought out your precepts.1646
I will speak of your statutes before kings17 and will not be put to shame,18
