Your word is a lamp1 to my feet and a light2 for my path.
I have taken an oath3 and confirmed it, that I will follow your righteous laws.4107
I have suffered much; preserve my life,5 LORD, according to your word.
Accept, LORD, the willing praise of my mouth,6 and teach me your laws.7109
Though I constantly take my life in my hands,8 I will not forget9 your law.
The wicked have set a snare10 for me, but I have not strayed11 from your precepts.
Your statutes are my heritage forever; they are the joy of my heart.12112
My heart is set13 on keeping your decrees to the very end.a14113
I hate double-minded people,15 but I love your law.16114
You are my refuge and my shield;17 I have put my hope18 in your word.
Away from me,19 you evildoers, that I may keep the commands of my God!
Sustain me20 according to your promise,21 and I will live; do not let my hopes be dashed.22117
Uphold me,23 and I will be delivered;24 I will always have regard for your decrees.25118
You reject all who stray26 from your decrees, for their delusions come to nothing.
All the wicked of the earth you discard like dross;27 therefore I love your statutes.28120
My flesh trembles29 in fear of you;30 I stand in awe31 of your laws.
I have done what is righteous and just;32 do not leave me to my oppressors.
Ensure your servant's well-being;33 do not let the arrogant oppress me.34123
My eyes fail,35 looking for your salvation,36 looking for your righteous promise.37124
Deal with your servant according to your love38 and teach me your decrees.39125
I am your servant;40 give me discernment that I may understand your statutes.41126
It is time for you to act, LORD; your law is being broken.42127
Because I love your commands43 more than gold,44 more than pure gold,45128
and because I consider all your precepts right,46 I hate every wrong path.47
