71 It is (A)good for me that I was afflicted,
    that I might learn your statutes.
72 (B)The law of your mouth is better to me
    than thousands of gold and silver pieces.

73 (C)Your hands have made and fashioned me;
    (D)give me understanding that I may learn your commandments.
74 Those who fear you shall see me and (E)rejoice,
    because I have (F)hoped in your word.
75 I know, O Lord, that your rules are (G)righteous,
    and that in (H)faithfulness you have afflicted me.
76 Let your steadfast love comfort me
    according to your promise to your servant.
