then I will answer1 the one who taunts me,2 for I trust in your word.
Do not snatch the word of truth from my mouth,3 for I have put my hope4 in your laws.
I will always obey your law,5 for ever and ever.
I will walk about in freedom, for I have sought out your precepts.646
I will speak of your statutes before kings7 and will not be put to shame,847
for I delight9 in your commands because I love them.1048
I lift up my hands toa your commands, which I love, and I meditate11 on your decrees.
Remember your word12 to your servant, for you have given me hope.1350
My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise preserves my life.1451
The arrogant mock me15 without restraint, but I do not turn16 from your law.
I remember17 your ancient laws, O LORD, and I find comfort in them.
