Psalm 119:97-104 Good News Translation (GNT)

Love for the Law of the Lord

97 How I love your law!
    I think about it all day long.
98 Your commandment is with me all the time
    and makes me wiser than my enemies.
99 I understand more than all my teachers,
    because I meditate on your instructions.
100 I have greater wisdom than those who are old,
    because I obey your commands.
101 I have avoided all evil conduct,
    because I want to obey your word.
102 I have not neglected your instructions,
    because you yourself are my teacher.
103 How sweet is the taste of your instructions—
    sweeter even than honey!
104 I gain wisdom from your laws,
    and so I hate all bad conduct.
