I will hasten and not delay to obey your commands.161
Though the wicked bind me with ropes, I will not forget2 your law.
At midnight3 I rise to give you thanks for your righteous laws.463
I am a friend to all who fear you,5 to all who follow your precepts.664
The earth is filled with your love,7 O LORD; teach me your decrees.8
Do good9 to your servant according to your word,10 O LORD.
Teach me knowledge11 and good judgment, for I believe in your commands.
Before I was afflicted12 I went astray,13 but now I obey your word.1468
You are good,15 and what you do is good; teach me your decrees.1669
Though the arrogant have smeared me with lies,17 I keep your precepts with all my heart.
Their hearts are callous18 and unfeeling, but I delight in your law.
