ח Cheth

57 The Lord is my portion;C,ac

I have promised to keep your words.

58 I have sought your favorad with all my heart;

be gracious to meae according to your promise.

59 I thought about my waysaf

and turned my steps back to your decrees.

60 I hurried, not hesitating

to keep your commands.

61 Though the ropes of the wickedag

were wrapped around me,

I did not forget your instruction.ah

62 I rise at midnight to thank youai

for your righteous judgments.aj

63 I am a friend to all who fear you,ak

to those who keep your precepts.

64 Lord, the earth is filled with your faithful love;al

teach me your statutes.am

ט Teth

65 Lord, you have treated your servant well,

just as you promised.

66 Teach me good judgment and discernment,an

for I rely on your commands.

67 Before I was afflicted I went astray,ao

but now I keep your word.

68 You are good,ap and you do what is good;aq

teach me your statutes.

69 The arrogant have smeared me with lies,ar

but I obey your precepts with all my heart.as

70 Their hearts are hard and insensitive,at

but I delight in your instruction.au

71 It was good for me to be afflictedav

so that I could learn your statutes.

72 Instruction from your lipsaw is better for me

than thousands of gold and silver pieces.
