I have sought1 your face with all my heart; be gracious to me2 according to your promise.359
I have considered my ways4 and have turned my steps to your statutes.
I will hasten and not delay to obey your commands.561
Though the wicked bind me with ropes, I will not forget6 your law.
At midnight7 I rise to give you thanks for your righteous laws.863
I am a friend to all who fear you,9 to all who follow your precepts.1064
The earth is filled with your love,11 O LORD; teach me your decrees.12
Do good13 to your servant according to your word,14 O LORD.
Teach me knowledge15 and good judgment, for I believe in your commands.
Before I was afflicted16 I went astray,17 but now I obey your word.1868
You are good,19 and what you do is good; teach me your decrees.20
