Sweeter than honey

How sweet are your Words, Jehovah, to my taste; they are sweeter than honey. Your precepts give me understanding; no wonder I hate every false way of life. Your Word is a lamp for my feet and a light to my path.

My life constantly hangs in the balance but I will not stop obeying your Word. I do not favour those who are undecided about you, but my choice is clear – I love your Word. I will praise you seven times a day because all your Word is just.

O LORD, listen to my cry; give me the discerning mind you promised. Listen to my prayer and rescue me as you promised. You made me, you created me. Now give me the sense to follow your Word. Forever, O LORD, your Word stands firm in heaven.
