Oh, that my ways were steadfast in obeying your decrees!16
Then I would not be put to shame2 when I consider all your commands.37
I will praise you with an upright heart as I learn your righteous laws.48
I will obey your decrees; do not utterly forsake me.5
How can a young man keep his way pure?6 By living according to your word.710
I seek you with all my heart;8 do not let me stray from your commands.911
I have hidden your word in my heart10 that I might not sin11 against you.
Praise be12 to you, O LORD; teach me13 your decrees.1413
With my lips I recount all the laws that come from your mouth.1514
I rejoice in following your statutes16 as one rejoices in great riches.
I meditate on your precepts17 and consider your ways.
