(A)The Law of the Lord is [a](B)perfect, (C)restoring the soul;
The testimony of the Lord is (D)sure, making (E)wise the simple.
The precepts of the Lord are (F)right, (G)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 judgments of the Lord are (J)true; they are (K)righteous altogether.
10 They are more desirable than (L)gold, yes, than much pure gold;
(M)Sweeter also than honey and drippings of the honeycomb.
11 Moreover, (N)Your servant is warned by them;
In keeping them there is great (O)reward.
12 Who can (P)discern his errors? (Q)Acquit me of (R)hidden faults.
13 Also keep Your servant back (S)from presumptuous sins;
Let them not (T)rule over me;
Then I will be (U)innocent,
And I will be blameless of (V)great wrongdoing.
14 May the words of my mouth and (W)the meditation of my heart
Be acceptable in Your sight,
Lord, (X)my rock and my (Y)Redeemer.
