8 The law of the Lord is immaculate, converting souls. The testimony of the Lord is faithful, providing wisdom to little ones.
9 The justice of the Lord is right, rejoicing hearts. The precepts of the Lord are brilliant, enlightening the eyes.
10 The fear of the Lord is holy, enduring for all generations. The judgments of the Lord are true, justified in themselves:
11 desirable beyond gold and many precious stones, and sweeter than honey and the honeycomb.
12 For you rescue those who persevere for you, O Lord, and you free them from the hands of the Gentiles.
13 You exalted my habitation upon the earth, and I made supplication that death would pass away.

15 I will praise your name unceasingly, and I will praise it with thanksgiving, for my prayer was heeded.
16 And you freed me from perdition, and you rescued me from the time of iniquity.
17 Because of this, I will give thanks and praise to you, and I will bless the name of the Lord.

20 My heart rejoiced in her. My feet walked in the right path. From my youth, I pursued her.
