but walk in his ways!

You have commanded your qprecepts

to be kept diligently.

Oh that my ways may rbe steadfast

sThen I shall not be put to shame,

having my eyes fixed on all your commandments.

I will praise you with an upright heart,

when I learn tyour righteous rules.2

I will keep your statutes;

udo not utterly forsake me!
