41 May your unfailing love(A) come to me, Lord,
    your salvation, according to your promise;(B)
42 then I can answer(C) anyone who taunts me,(D)
    for I trust in your word.
43 Never take your word of truth from my mouth,(E)
    for I have put my hope(F) in your laws.
44 I will always obey your law,(G)
    for ever and ever.
45 I will walk about in freedom,
    for I have sought out your precepts.(H)
46 I will speak of your statutes before kings(I)
    and will not be put to shame,(J)
47 for I delight(K) in your commands
    because I love them.(L)
48 I reach out for your commands, which I love,
    that I may meditate(M) on your decrees.

12 Speak and act as those who are going to be judged(H) by the law that gives freedom,(I) 13 because judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful.(J) Mercy triumphs over judgment.
