Oh, how I love your law!1 I meditate2 on it all day long.
Your commands make me wiser3 than my enemies, for they are ever with me.
I have more insight than all my teachers, for I meditate on your statutes.4100
I have more understanding than the elders, for I obey your precepts.5101
I have kept my feet6 from every evil path so that I might obey your word.7102
I have not departed from your laws,8 for you yourself have taught9 me.
How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey10 to my mouth!11104
I gain understanding12 from your precepts; therefore I hate every wrong path.13
Your word is a lamp14 to my feet and a light15 for my path.
I have taken an oath16 and confirmed it, that I will follow your righteous laws.17107
I have suffered much; preserve my life,18 O LORD, according to your word.
