Psalm 119: 1-3, 5-6, 9-18

Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the "law" (instructions, teachings) of The Lord (YHWH).

Blessed are they that keep His testimonies, and that seek Him with the whole heart.

They also do not iniquity:  they walk in His ways.

 

O that my ways were directed to keep Thy Statutes!

Then shall I not be ashamed, when I shall have respect unto all Thy Commandments.

 

Wherewithal (how) shall a young man cleanse his way?  by taking heed thereto according to Thy Word.

With my whole heart have I sought Thee:  O let me not wander from Thy Commandments.

Thy Word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against Thee.

Blessed art Thou, O Lord (YHWH):  teach me Thy Statutes.

With my lips have I declared all the judgments of Thy Mouth.

I have rejoiced in the Way of Thy Testimonies, as much as in all riches.

I will meditate in Thy Precepts, and have respect unto Thy Ways.

I will delight myself in Thy Statutes:  I will not forget Thy Word.

Deal bountifully with Thy servant, that I may live, and keep Thy Word.

Open Thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of Thy Law (instructions, teachings).
