Thy word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
I have sworn an oath and confirmed it, to observe thy righteous ordinances.
I am sorely afflicted; give me life, O LORD, according to thy word!
Accept my offerings of praise, O LORD, and teach me thy ordinances.
I hold my life in my hand continually, but I do not forget thy law.
The wicked have laid a snare for me, but I do not stray from thy precepts.
Thy testimonies are my heritage for ever; yea, they are the joy of my heart.
I incline my heart to perform thy statutes for ever, to the end.
