My life is stuck in the dirt. Now make me live again according to your promise!
I confessed my ways and you answered me. Now teach me your statutes!
Help me understand what your precepts are about so I can contemplate your wondrous works!
My spirit sags because of grief. Now raise me up according to your promise!
Remove all false ways from me; show mercy to me by means of your Instruction.
I've chosen the way of faithfulness; I'm set on your rules.
I'm holding tight to your laws, LORD. Please don't let me be put to shame.
I run the same path as your commandments because you give my heart insight.
LORD, teach me what your statutes are about, and I will guard every part of them.
Help me understand so I can guard your Instruction and keep it with all my heart.
Lead me on the trail of your commandments because that is what I want.
Turn my heart to your laws, not to greedy gain.
Turn my eyes away from looking at worthless things. Make me live by your way.
Confirm your promise to your servant— the promise that is for all those who honor you.
Remove the insults that I dread because your rules are good.
Look how I desire your precepts! Make me live by your righteousness.
LORD, let your faithful love come to me— let your salvation come to me according to your promise—
so I can have a response for those who mock me because I have trusted in your word!
Please don't take your true word out of my mouth, because I have waited for your rules.
I will always keep your Instruction, always and forever!
I will walk around in wide-open spaces, because I have pursued your precepts.
I will talk about your laws before rulers with no shame whatsoever.
I will rejoice in your commandments because I love them.
I will lift up my hands to your commandments because I love them, and I will contemplate all your statutes.
