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, indeed, your servant keeps them, and in keeping them, there are many rewards.
13 Who can understand transgression? From my hidden faults, cleanse me, O Lord,
14 and from those of others, spare your servant. If they will have no dominion over me, then I will be immaculate, and I will be cleansed from the greatest transgression.
15 And the eloquence of my mouth will be so as to please, along with the meditation of my heart, in your sight, forever, O Lord, my helper and my redeemer.
Leviticus 19:1-2, 11-18
1 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying:
2 Speak to the entire assembly of the sons of Israel, and you shall say to them: Be holy, for I, the Lord your God, am holy.
11 You shall not steal. You shall not lie. Neither shall anyone deceive his neighbor.
12 You shall not commit perjury in my name, nor shall you pollute the name of your God. I am the Lord.
13 You shall not slander your neighbor, nor shall you oppress him by violence. The wages of a hired hand, you shall not delay with you until tomorrow.
14 You shall not speak evil of the deaf, nor shall you place a stumbling block before the blind, but you shall fear the Lord your God, for I am the Lord.
15 You shall not do what is unjust, nor shall you judge unjustly. You shall not consider the reputation of the poor, nor shall you honor the countenance of the powerful. Judge your neighbor justly.
16 You shall not be a detractor, nor a whisperer, among the people. You shall not stand against the blood of your neighbor. I am the Lord.
17 You shall not hate your brother in your heart, but reprove him openly, lest you have sin over him.
18 Do not seek revenge, neither should you be mindful of the injury of your fellow citizens. You shall love your friend as yourself. I am the Lord.
