The Eternal One is mine. He’s all I need.
    I have promised to keep Your words.
58 I sought Your blessing wholeheartedly.
    Show grace to me as You promised.
59 I carefully charted out my paths
    to align my steps with Your decrees.
60 I did not procrastinate and hurried
    to follow Your commands.
61 The wicked have entangled me in their nets,
    but I have not forgotten Your teaching.
62 In the middle of the night, I wake to thank You
    because Your rulings are just and right.
63 I am a friend of anyone who fears You
    and of those who follow Your precepts.
64 The earth is filled with Your unfailing love, O Eternal One;
    teach me to observe what You require.


65 You have handled Your servant well,
    O Eternal One, as You promised.
66 Help me to learn good judgment and knowledge
    because I believe Your commandments.
67 Before I had trouble, I strayed from the true path, the path of righteousness,
    but now I live according to Your word.
68 You are truly good, and Your acts are too;
    teach me what You require.
69 The proud smear me with their lies;
    I will keep Your instructions wholeheartedly.
70 Their hearts are dull and callous;
    I am delighted to study Your teaching.
71 It is a good thing that I was humbled
    because it helped me learn Your limits.
72 Your teachings are more valuable to me
    than a fortune in gold and silver.


73 Your strong hands formed me and established me;
    give me understanding so I can learn Your commands.
74 Let those who fear You see me and rejoice
    because I hope in Your word.
75 I know, O Eternal One, Your rulings are right,
    and when You humbled me, You did so out of faithfulness.
76 Now let Your unfailing love be my comfort,
    in keeping with Your promise to Your servant.
77 Shower me with Your compassion so that I may live
    because I find great joy in Your law.
78 Let the proud be humiliated,
    for they sabotage me with a lie;
    still I will fix my mind on Your directives.
79 Let those who fear You and know Your testimonies
    come back and find me.
80 Let my heart be whole, my record according to what You require
    so that I will not be humiliated.
