You have dealt well with your servant, O LORD, 1according to your word.
Teach me 2good judgment and knowledge, for I believe in your commandments.
3Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I keep your word.
4You are good and do good; 5teach me your statutes.
6The insolent 7smear me with lies, but with my whole heart I 8keep your precepts;
their heart is unfeeling 9like fat, but I 10delight in your law.
It is 11good for me that I was afflicted, that I might learn your statutes.
12The law of your mouth is better to me than thousands of gold and silver pieces.
