33 (A)Teach me, the way of Your statutes, Lord,
And I shall comply with it to the end.
34 (B)Give me understanding, so that I may (C)comply with Your Law
And keep it (D)with all my heart.
35 Make me walk in the (E)path of Your commandments,
For I (F)delight in it.
36 (G)Incline my heart to Your testimonies,
And not to (H)dishonest gain.
37 Turn my (I)eyes away from looking at what is worthless,
And (J)revive me in Your ways.
38 (K)Establish Your [a]word to Your servant
[b]As that which produces reverence for You.
39 (L)Take away my disgrace which I dread,
For Your judgments are good.
40 Behold, I (M)long for Your precepts;
Revive me through Your righteousness.


41 May Your (N)favor also come to me, Lord,
Your salvation (O)according to Your [c]word;
42 So that I will have an (P)answer for one who (Q)taunts me,
For I trust in Your word.
43 And do not take the word of truth utterly out of my mouth,
For I [d](R)wait for Your judgments.
44 So I will (S)keep Your Law continually,
Forever and ever.
45 And I will (T)walk [e]at liberty,
For I (U)seek Your precepts.
46 I will also speak of Your testimonies (V)before kings
And shall not be ashamed.
47 I will (W)delight in Your commandments,
Which I (X)love.
48 And I shall lift up my hands to Your commandments,
Which I (Y)love;
And I will (Z)meditate on Your statutes.


49 Remember the word to Your servant,
[f]In which You have made me hope.
50 This is my (AA)comfort in my misery,
That Your word has [g]revived me.
51 The arrogant (AB)utterly deride me,
Yet I do not (AC)turn aside from Your Law.
52 I have (AD)remembered Your judgments from [h]of old, Lord,
And comfort myself.
53 Burning (AE)indignation has seized me because of the wicked,
Who (AF)abandon Your Law.
54 Your statutes are my songs
In the house of my (AG)pilgrimage.
55 Lord, I (AH)remember Your name (AI)in the night,
And keep Your Law.
56 This has become mine,
[i]That I (AJ)comply with Your precepts.


57 The Lord is my (AK)portion;
I have [j]promised to (AL)keep Your words.
58 I (AM)sought Your favor (AN)with all my heart;
(AO)Be gracious to me (AP)according to Your [k]word.
59 I (AQ)considered my ways
And turned my feet to Your testimonies.
60 I hurried and did not delay
To keep Your commandments.
61 The (AR)snares of the wicked have surrounded me,
But I have (AS)not forgotten Your Law.
62 At (AT)midnight I will rise to give thanks to You
Because of Your (AU)righteous judgments.
63 I am a (AV)companion to all those who [l]fear You,
And to those who keep Your precepts.
64 (AW)The earth is full of Your goodness, Lord;
(AX)Teach me Your statutes.
