How will a youth keep pure to his ways?
by adhering to Thy word.
with all my heart I seek Thee,
let me not stray from Thy commandments.
Within my heart I hide Thy sayings,
that I may not sin against Thee.
Blessed art Thou, O Lord,
teach my Thy statutes.
With my lips will I tell
all the judgments of Thy mouth.
I delight to walk in Thy testimonies,
more than in all riches
I will meditate upon Thy precepts,
and reflect upon Thy ways.
In Thy statutes I take delight,
I will not forget Thy words.
