Lord, teach me the way of your laws; I shall observe them with care.
Give me insight to observe your teaching, to keep it with all my heart.
Lead me in the path of your commands, for that is my delight.
Direct my heart toward your decrees and away from unjust gain.
Avert my eyes from what is worthless; by your way give me life.
For your servant fulfill your promise made to those who fear you.
Turn away from me the taunts I dread, for your edicts bring good.
See how I long for your precepts; in your justice give me life.
Psalm 119 continued – verses 33-40
