You have rebuked the proud who are cursed, Who wander from your commandments.
Take reproach and contempt away from me, For I have kept your statutes.
Though princes sit and slander me, Your servant will meditate on your statutes.
Indeed your statutes are my delight, And my counselors.
My soul is laid low in the dust. Revive me according to your word!
I declared my ways, and you answered me. Teach me your statutes.
Let me understand the teaching of your precepts! Then I will meditate on your wondrous works.
My soul is weary with sorrow. Strengthen me according to your word.
Keep me from the way of deceit. Grant me your law graciously!
I have chosen the way of truth. I have set my heart on your law.
I cling to your statutes, Yahweh. Don't let me be put to shame.
