1 Alleluia. ALEPH. Blessed are the immaculate in the way, who walk in the law of the Lord.
2 Blessed are those who examine his testimonies. They seek him with their whole heart.
3 For those who work iniquity have not walked in his ways.
4 You have ordered your commandments to be kept most diligently.
5 I wish that my ways may be directed so as to keep your justifications.
6 Then I will not be confounded, when I will look into all your commandments.
7 I will confess to you with honesty of heart. In this way, I have learned the judgments of your justice.
8 I will keep your justifications. Do not utterly abandon me.
16 Today the Lord your God has instructed you to carry out these commandments and judgments, and to keep and fulfill them, with all your heart and with all your soul.
17 Today, you have chosen the Lord to be your God, so that you may walk in his ways, and keep his ceremonies and commandments and judgments, and obey his command.
18 Today, the Lord has chosen you, so that you may be his particular people, just as he has spoken to you, and so that you may keep all his precepts,
19 and so that he may cause you to be more exalted than all the nations which he has created, for the sake of his own praise and name and glory, in order that you may be a holy people for the Lord your God, just as he has spoken."
