You are my inheritance, O Yahweh.
    I promised to hold on to your words.
With all my heart I want to win your favor.
    Be kind to me as you promised.
I have thought about my life,
    and I have directed my feet back to your written instructions.
Without any hesitation, I hurry to obey your commandments.
Though the ropes of wicked people are tied around me,
    I never forget your teachings.
At midnight I wake up to give thanks to you
    for the regulations, which are based on your righteousness.
I am a friend to everyone who fears you
    and to everyone who follows your guiding principles.
Your mercy, O Yahweh, fills the earth.
    Teach me your laws. (Psalm 119:57-64)

How can a young person keep his life pure?
    He can do it by holding on to your word.
I wholeheartedly searched for you.
    Do not let me wander away from your commandments.
I have treasured your promise in my heart
    so that I may not sin against you.
Thanks be to you, O Yahweh.
    Teach me your laws.
With my lips, I have repeated
    every regulation that comes from your mouth.
I find joy in the way shown by your written instructions
    more than I find joy in all kinds of riches.
I want to reflect on your guiding principles
    and study your ways.
Your laws make me happy.
    I never forget your word (Psalm 119:9-16)
