Blessed are those who are undefiled in their ways, *
and walk in the law of the Lord.
Blessed are those who keep his testimonies, *
and seek him with their whole heart.
Even those who do no wickedness *
and perfectly walk in his ways.
You have ordered your precepts *
that we should diligently keep them.
O that my ways were made so direct *
that I might keep your statutes!
Then would I not be put to shame *
while I give heed unto all your commandments.
I will thank you with an upright heart, *
when I have learned your righteous judgments.
I will keep your statutes; *
O do not forsake me utterly.
In quo corrigit?
How shall a young man cleanse his way? *
By ruling himself according to your word.
With my whole heart I have sought you; *
O let me not go astray from your commandments.
Your words have I hidden within my heart, *
that I may not sin against you.
Blessed are you, O Lord; *
teach me your statutes.
With my lips have I been telling *
of all the judgments of your mouth.
I have had greater delight in the way of your testimonies *
than in all manner of riches.
I will meditate on your commandments *
and have respect for all your ways.
My delight will be in your statutes, *
and I will not forget your word.
Retribue servo tuo
O do well unto your servant, *
that I may live, and keep your word.
Open my eyes that I may see *
the wondrous things of your law.
I am a sojourner on earth; *
O hide not your commandments from me.
My soul is consumed with the fervent desire *
that it always has for your judgments.
You have rebuked the proud, *
and cursed are those who stray from your commandments.
O turn from me shame and contempt, *
for I have kept your testimonies.
Though princes sit and speak against me, *
yet will your servant meditate on your statutes.
For your testimonies are my delight *
and they are my counselors.
