Blessed are those whose ways are blameless,
who walk according to the law of the Lord.
Blessed are those who keep his statutes
and seek him with all their heart.
I will praise you with an upright heart
as I learn your righteous laws.
How can a young person stay on the path of purity?
By living according to your word.
I seek you with all my heart;
do not let me stray from your commands.
I have hidden your word in my heart
that I might not sin against you.
I rejoice in following your statutes
as one rejoices in great riches.
I have chosen the way of faithfulness;
I have set my heart on your laws.
Turn my heart toward your statutes
and not toward selfish gain.
I will hasten and not delay
to obey your commands.
I will never forget your precepts,
for by them you have preserved my life.
Your word is a lamp for my feet,
a light on my path.
Your statutes are my heritage forever;
they are the joy of my heart.
You are my refuge and my shield;
I have put my hope in your word.
The unfolding of your words gives light;
it gives understanding to the simple.
Direct my footsteps according to your word;
let no sin rule over me.
All your words are true;
all your righteous laws are eternal.
Great peace have those who love your law,
and nothing can make them stumble.
