I will speak to kings about your laws, and I will not be ashamed.
How I delight in your commands! How I love them!
I honor and love your commands. I meditate on your decrees.
Remember your promise to me; it is my only hope.
Your promise revives me; it comforts me in all my troubles.
The proud hold me in utter contempt, but I do not turn away from your instructions.
I meditate on your age-old regulations; O LORD, they comfort me.
I become furious with the wicked, because they reject your instructions.
Your decrees have been the theme of my songs wherever I have lived.
I reflect at night on who you are, O LORD ; therefore, I obey your instructions.
This is how I spend my life: obeying your commandments.
LORD, you are mine! I promise to obey your words!
With all my heart I want your blessings. Be merciful as you promised.
I pondered the direction of my life, and I turned to follow your laws.
I will hurry, without delay, to obey your commands.
Evil people try to drag me into sin, but I am firmly anchored to your instructions.
I rise at midnight to thank you for your just regulations.
I am a friend to anyone who fears you— anyone who obeys your commandments.
O LORD, your unfailing love fills the earth; teach me your decrees.
You have done many good things for me, LORD, just as you promised.
I believe in your commands; now teach me good judgment and knowledge.
