1 Happy are people of integrity, who follow the law of the LORD.

2 Happy are those who obey his decrees and search for him with all their hearts.

3 They do not compromise with evil, and they walk only in his paths.

4 You have charged us to keep your commandments carefully.

5 Oh, that my actions would consistently reflect your principles!

6 Then I will not be disgraced when I compare my life with your commands.

7 When I learn your righteous laws, I will thank you by living as I should!

8 I will obey your principles. Please don't give up on me!

9 How can a young person stay pure? By obeying your word and following its rules.

10 I have tried my best to find you-- don't let me wander from your commands.

11 I have hidden your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.

12 Blessed are you, O LORD; teach me your principles.

13 I have recited aloud all the laws you have given us.

14 I have rejoiced in your decrees as much as in riches.

15 I will study your commandments and reflect on your ways.

16 I will delight in your principles and not forget your word.

17 Be good to your servant, that I may live and obey your word.

18 Open my eyes to see the wonderful truths in your law.

19 I am but a foreigner here on earth; I need the guidance of your commands. Don't hide them from me!

20 I am overwhelmed continually with a desire for your laws.

21 You rebuke those cursed proud ones who wander from your commands.

22 Don't let them scorn and insult me, for I have obeyed your decrees.

23 Even princes sit and speak against me, but I will meditate on your principles.

24 Your decrees please me; they give me wise advice.

25 I lie in the dust, completely discouraged; revive me by your word.

26 I told you my plans, and you answered. Now teach me your principles.

27 Help me understand the meaning of your commandments, and I will meditate on your wonderful miracles.

28 I weep with grief; encourage me by your word.

29 Keep me from lying to myself; give me the privilege of knowing your law.

30 I have chosen to be faithful; I have determined to live by your laws.

31 I cling to your decrees. LORD, don't let me be put to shame!

32 If you will help me, I will run to follow your commands.

33 Teach me, O LORD, to follow every one of your principles.

34 Give me understanding and I will obey your law; I will put it into practice with all my heart.

35 Make me walk along the path of your commands, for that is where my happiness is found.

36 Give me an eagerness for your decrees; do not inflict me with love for money!

37 Turn my eyes from worthless things, and give me life through your word.*1

38 Reassure me of your promise, which is for those who honor you.

39 Help me abandon my shameful ways; your laws are all I want in life.

40 I long to obey your commandments! Renew my life with your goodness.

41 LORD, give to me your unfailing love, the salvation that you promised me.

42 Then I will have an answer for those who taunt me, for I trust in your word.

43 Do not snatch your word of truth from me, for my only hope is in your laws.

44 I will keep on obeying your law forever and forever.

45 I will walk in freedom, for I have devoted myself to your commandments.

46 I will speak to kings about your decrees, and I will not be ashamed.

47 How I delight in your commands! How I love them!

48 I honor and love your commands. I meditate on your principles.

49 Remember your promise to me, for it is my only hope.

50 Your promise revives me; it comforts me in all my troubles.

51 The proud hold me in utter contempt, but I do not turn away from your law.

52 I meditate on your age-old laws; O LORD, they comfort me.

53 I am furious with the wicked, those who reject your law.

54 Your principles have been the music of my life throughout the years of my pilgrimage.

55 I reflect at night on who you are, O LORD, and I obey your law because of this.
