The precepts of the LORD are right,8 giving joy9 to the heart. The commands of the LORD are radiant, giving light to the eyes.109
The fear of the LORD 11 is pure, enduring forever. The ordinances of the LORD are sure and altogether righteous.1210

By them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward.
Who can discern his errors? Forgive my hidden faults.1613

May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing20 in your sight, O LORD, my Rock21 and my Redeemer.22
