How pleasing is what you have to say to me tasting better than honey.
I haven't wandered away from the commands that he has spoken; I've treasured what he has said more than my own meals."
My eyes grow weary with respect to what you have promised I keep asking, "When will you comfort me?"

I am more insightful than my teachers, because your decrees are my meditations.
I find joy at what you have said like one who has discovered a great treasure.
Your words were found, and I consumed them. Your words were joy and my hearts delight, because I bear your name, LORD God of the Heavenly Armies.

My soul clings to the dust; revive me according to your word.
