I rejoice over Your promise like one who finds vast treasure.
The precepts of the Lord are right, making the heart glad; the commandment of the Lord is radiant, making the eyes light up.
I have Your decrees as a heritage forever; indeed, they are the joy of my heart.
Your words were found, and I ate them. Your words became a delight to me and the joy of my heart, for I am called by Your name, Lord God of Hosts.
And the one sown on rocky ground-this is one who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy.
And these are the ones sown on rocky ground: when they hear the word, immediately they receive it with joy.
And the seeds on the rock are those who, when they hear, welcome the word with joy. Having no root, these believe for a while and depart in a time of testing.
How happy are those whose way is blameless, who live according to the law of the Lord!
