(D)deliver me according to your word.
171 My lips will (E)pour forth praise,
for you (F)teach me your statutes.
172 My tongue will sing of your word,
for (G)all your commandments are right.
173 Let your hand be ready to help me,
for I have (H)chosen your precepts.
174 I (I)long for your salvation, O Lord,
and your law is my (J)delight.
175 Let my soul live and praise you,
and let your rules help me.
176 I have (K)gone astray like a lost sheep; seek your servant,
for I do not (L)forget your commandments.
