New International Version
65 Do good(A) to your servant
according to your word,(B) Lord.
66 Teach me knowledge(C) and good judgment,
for I trust your commands.
67 Before I was afflicted(D) I went astray,(E)
but now I obey your word.(F)
68 You are good,(G) and what you do is good;
teach me your decrees.(H)
69 Though the arrogant have smeared me with lies,(I)
I keep your precepts with all my heart.
70 Their hearts are callous(J) and unfeeling,
but I delight in your law.
71 It was good for me to be afflicted(K)
so that I might learn your decrees.
72 The law from your mouth is more precious to me
than thousands of pieces of silver and gold.(L)
