Psalm 119: 9 (NIV)
9 How can a young man keep his way pure?
By living according to your word.

Do not let me stray from your commands.
11 I have hidden your word in my heart
That I might not sin against you.
12 Praise be to you, O Lord;
Teach me your decrees.
13 With my lips I recount
All the laws that come from your mouth.
14 I rejoice in following your statutes
As one rejoices in great riches.
15 I meditate on your precepts
and consider your ways.
16 I delight in your decrees;
I will not neglect your word.

I will obey your word.
18 Open my eyes that I may see
Wonderful things in your law.
19 I am a stranger on earth;
Do not hide your commands from me.
20 My soul is consumed with longing
For your laws at all times

And who stray from your commands.

For I keep your statutes.

Your servant will meditate on your decrees.

They are my counselors.

Do not let me be put to shame.

For you have set my heart free.

Then I will keep them to the end.
34 Give me understanding, and I will keep your law
And obey it with all my heart.
