Your word, O LORD, is eternal;1 it stands firm in the heavens.
Your faithfulness2 continues through all generations;3 you established the earth, and it endures.491
Your laws endure5 to this day, for all things serve you.692
If your law had not been my delight,7 I would have perished in my affliction.893
I will never forget9 your precepts, for by them you have preserved my life.1094
Save me,11 for I am yours; I have sought out your precepts.1295
The wicked are waiting to destroy me,13 but I will ponder your statutes.1496
To all perfection I see a limit; but your commands are boundless.15
Oh, how I love your law!16 I meditate17 on it all day long.
Your commands make me wiser18 than my enemies, for they are ever with me.
I have more insight than all my teachers, for I meditate on your statutes.19100
I have more understanding than the elders, for I obey your precepts.20101
I have kept my feet21 from every evil path so that I might obey your word.22102
I have not departed from your laws,23 for you yourself have taught24 me.
How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey25 to my mouth!26104
I gain understanding27 from your precepts; therefore I hate every wrong path.28
