Your commandments make me wiser than my enemies, for I am always aware of them.
So be sure to do them, because this will testify of your wise understanding to the people who will learn of all these statutes and say, "Indeed, this great nation is a very wise people."
And what other great nation has statutes and ordinances as just as this whole law that I am about to share with you today?
On every mission on which Saul sent him, David achieved success. So Saul appointed him over the men of war. This pleased not only all the army, but also Saul's servants.
Now David achieved success in all he did, for the Lord was with him.
Then the leaders of the Philistines would march out, and as often as they did so, David achieved more success than all of Saul's servants. His name was held in high esteem.
I choose the path of faithfulness; I am committed to your regulations.
Your precepts give me discernment. Therefore I hate all deceitful actions.
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and exhorting one another with all wisdom, singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, all with grace in your hearts to God.
But the one who peers into the perfect law of liberty and fixes his attention there, and does not become a forgetful listener but one who lives it out -- he will be blessed in what he does.
