My soul clings to the dust; *
revive me according to your word!
I have told of my ways, and you answered me; *
teach me your decrees!
Make me to understand the way of your commandments, *
that I may meditate on your wondrous works.
My soul is weary with sorrow; *
strengthen me according to your word!
Remove from me deceitful ways *
and teach me your law graciously!
I have chosen the way of faithfulness; *
I have set your ordinances before me.
I hold fast to your testimonies; *
O LORD, let me not be put to shame!
I will run in the path of your commandments *
For you have set my heart free!
Teach me, O LORD, the way of your statutes; *
and I shall keep it to the end.
Give me understanding, that I may keep your law; *
and I will keep it with my whole heart.
Make me to walk in the path of your commandments, *
for in it do I delight.
Incline my heart toward your testimonies, *
and not toward selfish gain!
Turn my eyes away from looking at worthless things; *
and revive me in your ways.
Confirm your promise to your servant, *
that you may be feared.
Turn away the disgrace that I dread, *
for your ordinances are good.
Behold, I long for your precepts; *
revive me in your righteousness!
Let your faithful love come to me, O LORD, *
your salvation according to your promise;
So then shall I have an answer for him who taunts me, *
for I trust in your word.
Take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth, *
for my hope is in your ordinances.
So shall I keep your law continually, *
I shall keep it for ever and ever,
And I shall walk about in a wide place, *
for I have sought your precepts.
I will also speak of your testimonies before kings *
and shall not be put to shame,
For I find my delight in your commandments, *
which I love.
I lift up my hands toward your commandments, which I love, *
and I will meditate on your decrees.
