How I love your teaching, Lord! I study it all day long.
Your command makes me wiser than my foes, for it is always with me.
I have more understanding than all my teachers, because I ponder your decrees.
I have more insight than my elders, because I observe your precepts.

I keep my steps from every evil path, that I may obey your word.
From your edicts I do not turn, for you have taught them to me.
How sweet to my tongue is your promise, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
Through your precepts I gain insight; therefore I hate all false ways.

Psalm 119 continued – verses 97-104
