Make your face shine on your servant and teach me your decrees.
Streams of tears flow from my eyes, for your law is not obeyed.
You are righteous, LORD, and your laws are right.
The statutes you have laid down are righteous; they are fully trustworthy.
My zeal wears me out, for my enemies ignore your words.
Your promises have been thoroughly tested, and your servant loves them.
Though I am lowly and despised, I do not forget your precepts.
Your righteousness is everlasting and your law is true.
Trouble and distress have come upon me, but your commands give me delight.
Your statutes are always righteous; give me understanding that I may live.
I call with all my heart; answer me, LORD, and I will obey your decrees.
