Your hands made me1 and formed me; give me understanding to learn your commands.
May those who fear you rejoice2 when they see me, for I have put my hope in your word.375
I know, LORD, that your laws are righteous,4 and that in faithfulness5 you have afflicted me.
May your unfailing love6 be my comfort, according to your promise7 to your servant.
Let your compassion8 come to me that I may live, for your law is my delight.978
May the arrogant10 be put to shame for wronging me without cause;11 but I will meditate on your precepts.
May those who fear you turn to me, those who understand your statutes.1280
May my heart be blameless13 toward your decrees,14 that I may not be put to shame.15
