Influential people have persecuted me for no reason, but it is only your words that fill my heart with terror.
I find joy in your promise like someone who finds a priceless treasure.
I hate lying; I am disgusted with it. I love your teachings.
Seven times a day I praise you for your righteous regulations.
There is lasting peace for those who love your teachings. Nothing can make those people stumble.
I have waited with hope for you to save me, O LORD. I have carried out your commandments.
I have obeyed your written instructions. I have loved them very much.
I have followed your guiding principles and your written instructions, because my whole life is in front of you.
Let my cry for help come into your presence, O LORD. Help me understand as you promised.
Let my plea for mercy come into your presence. Rescue me as you promised.
Let my lips pour out praise because you teach me your laws.
