65You have dealt well with your servant, O Lord, according to your word.

66Teach me good judgment and knowledge, for I believe in your commandments.

67Before I was humbled I went astray, but now I keep your word.

68You are good and do good; teach me your statutes.

69The arrogant smear me with lies, but with my whole heart I keep your precepts.

70Their hearts are fat and gross, but I delight in your law.

71It is good for me that I was humbled, so that I might learn your statutes.

72The law of your mouth is better to me than thousands of gold and silver pieces.
