I will meditate on Your precepts
And regard Your ways.
But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
Even though princes sit and talk against me,
Your servant meditates on Your statutes.
And I shall lift up my hands to Your commandments,
Which I love;
And I will meditate on Your statutes.
May the arrogant be ashamed, for they subvert me with a lie;
But I shall meditate on Your precepts.
O how I love Your law!
It is my meditation all the day.
My eyes anticipate the night watches,
That I may meditate on Your word.
Then I shall not be ashamed
When I look upon all Your commandments.
Uphold me that I may be safe,
That I may have regard for Your statutes continually.
I opened my mouth wide and panted,
For I longed for Your commandments.
But one who looks intently at the perfect law, the law of liberty, and abides by it, not having become a forgetful hearer but an effectual doer, this man will be blessed in what he does.
