In my soul have I longed for thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek for thee; for when thy judgments are sent on the earth, the inhabitants of the world learn righteousness.
Lead me in thy truth, and teach me; for thou art the God of my salvation: on thee do I wait all the day.
Good and upright is the Lord: therefore he pointeth out to sinners the right way.
He guideth the meek in justice, and he teacheth the meek his way.
Whoso loveth correction loveth knowledge; but he that hateth reproof is brutish.
Show me, O Lord, thy ways; teach me thy paths.
I will instruct thee and I will teach thee concerning the way which thou oughtest to go: I will counsel thee with my eye.
And thou shalt consider in thy heart, that, as a man chasteneth his son, so doth the Lord thy God chasten thee.
The correction of the Lord, my son, do not despise; and feel no loathing for his admonition;
Because whomever the Lord loveth he admonisheth; and as a father who delighteth in his son.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: wisdom and instruction fools alone despise.
Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; guide me on a level land.
In the way of wisdom have I instructed thee: I have led thee in the tracks of uprightness.
