⁷The law of the Lord is perfect,
restoring the soul;
The testimony of the Lord is sure,
making wise the simple.
⁸The precepts of the Lord are right,
rejoicing the heart;
The commandment of the Lord is pure,
enlightening the eyes.
⁹The fear of the Lord is clean,
The judgments of the Lord are true;
they are righteous altogether.
¹⁰They are more desirable than gold,
yes, than much fine gold;
Sweeter also than honey
and the drippings of the honeycomb.
¹¹Moreover, by them Your servant is warned;
In keeping them there is great reward.
¹²Who can discern his errors?
Acquit me of hidden faults.
¹³Also keep back Your servant
from presumptuous sins;
Let them not rule over me;
Then I will be blameless,
and I shall be acquitted of great transgression.
¹⁴Let the words of my mouth
and the meditation of my heart
be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord,
my rock and my Redeemer.
⁷The law of the Lord is good, giving new life to the soul: the witness of the Lord is certain, giving wisdom to the foolish. ⁸The orders of the Lord are right, making glad the heart: the rule of the Lord is holy, giving light to the eyes. ⁹The fear of the Lord is clean, and has no end; the decisions of the Lord are true and full of righteousness. ¹⁰More to be desired are they than gold, even than much shining gold; sweeter than the dropping honey. ¹¹By them is your servant made conscious of danger, and in keeping them there is great reward. ¹²Who has full knowledge of his errors? make me clean from secret evil. ¹³Keep your servant back from sins of pride; let them not have rule over me: then will I be upright and free from great sin. ¹⁴Let the words of my mouth and the thoughts of my heart be pleasing in your eyes, O Lord, my strength and my salvation.
