Make clear to me the way of Your precepts;
then I will meditate on Your wonders.
My soul melts with sorrow;
strengthen me according to Your word.
Remove me from the path of deceit
and graciously grant me Your law.
I have chosen the way of truth;
I have set Your ordinances before me.
I cling to Your testimonies, O LORD;
let me not be put to shame.
I run in the path of Your commandments,
for You will enlarge my heart.
Teach me, O LORD, the way of Your statutes,
and I will keep them to the end.
Give me understanding that I may obey Your law,
and follow it with all my heart.
Direct me in the path of Your commandments,
for there I find delight.
Turn my heart to Your testimonies
and not to covetous gain.
Turn my eyes away from worthless things;
revive me with Your word.
Establish Your word to Your servant,
to produce reverence for You.
Turn away the disgrace I dread,
for Your judgments are good.
How I long for Your precepts!
Revive me in Your righteousness.
May Your loving devotion come to me, O LORD,
Your salvation, according to Your promise.
Then I can answer him who taunts,
for I trust in Your word.
Never take Your word of truth from my mouth,
for I hope in Your judgments.
I will always obey Your law,
forever and ever.
And I will walk in freedom,
for I have sought Your precepts.
I will speak of Your testimonies before kings,
and I will not be ashamed.
I delight in Your commandments
because I love them.
I lift up my hands to Your commandments, which I love,
and I meditate on Your statutes.
