(A)The law of the Lord is perfect,[a]
    (B)reviving the soul;
(C)the testimony of the Lord is (D)sure,
    (E)making wise (F)the simple;
(G)the precepts of the Lord are right,
    rejoicing the heart;
the commandment of the Lord is (H)pure,
    (I)enlightening the eyes;
the fear of the Lord is clean,
    enduring forever;
the rules[b] of the Lord are (J)true,
    and righteous altogether.
10 More to be desired are they than (K)gold,
    even much (L)fine gold;
(M)sweeter also than honey
    and drippings of (N)the honeycomb.
11 Moreover, by them is your servant warned;
    (O)in keeping them there is great reward.
