How can a young person keep their life pure?
By living according to your word.
I trust in you with all my heart.
Don’t let me wander away from your commands.
I have hidden your word in my heart
so that I won’t sin against you.
Lord, I give praise to you.
Teach me your orders.
With my lips I talk about
all the decisions you have made.
Following your covenant laws gives me joy
just as great riches give joy to others.
I spend time thinking about your rules.
I consider how you want me to live.
I take delight in your orders.
I won’t fail to obey your word.
