BETH. Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.

Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law; yea, I shall observe it with my whole heart.
VAU. Let thy mercies come also unto me, O LORD, even thy salvation, according to thy word.
And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth; for I have hoped in thy judgments.
My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments, which I have loved; and I will meditate in thy statutes.
I intreated thy favour with my whole heart: be merciful unto me according to thy word.
The proud have forged a lie against me: but I will keep thy precepts with my whole heart.
JOD. Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding, that I may learn thy commandments.
I know, O LORD, that thy judgments are right, and that thou in faithfulness hast afflicted me.
Let, I pray thee, thy merciful kindness be for my comfort, according to thy word unto thy servant.
Let the proud be ashamed; for they dealt perversely with me without a cause: but I will meditate in thy precepts.
How many are the days of thy servant? when wilt thou execute judgment on them that persecute me?
Thy faithfulness is unto all generations: thou hast established the earth, and it abideth.
Thou through thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they are ever with me.
I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies are my meditation.
Accept, I beseech thee, the freewill offerings of my mouth, O LORD, and teach me thy judgments.
Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage for ever: for they are the rejoicing of my heart.
Uphold me according unto thy word, that I may live: and let me not be ashamed of my hope.
Hold thou me up, and I shall be safe: and I will have respect unto thy statutes continually.
Thou hast trodden down all them that err from thy statutes: for their deceit is falsehood.
Thou puttest away all the wicked of the earth like dross: therefore I love thy testimonies.
Therefore I esteem all thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way.
Look thou upon me, and be merciful unto me, as thou usest to do unto those that love thy name.
The righteousness of thy testimonies is everlasting: give me understanding, and I shall live.
Hear my voice according unto thy lovingkindness: O LORD, quicken me according to thy judgment.
Concerning thy testimonies, I have known of old that thou hast founded them for ever.
Consider how I love thy precepts: quicken me, O LORD, according to thy lovingkindness.
Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.
SCHIN. Princes have persecuted me without a cause: but my heart standeth in awe of thy word.
TAU. Let my cry come near before thee, O LORD: give me understanding according to thy word.
I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek thy servant; for I do not forget thy commandments.
