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)
