97 MEM. Oh how do I love thy law! all the day is it my meditation.
98 Wiser than my enemy doth thy commandment make me; for it is perpetually with me.
99 Above all my teachers have I obtained intelligence; for thy testimonies are my meditation.
100 More than the elders do I possess understanding; because thy precepts do I keep.
May the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable before thee, O Lord, my Rock, and my Redeemer.
My mouth shall speak wisdom; and the meditation of my heart shall be of understanding.
I will remember the deeds of the Lord; for I will remember out of ancient times thy wonders.
I will meditate also of all thy work, and on thy deeds will I reflect.
I remember the days of olden times: I meditate on all thy doings: on the work of thy hands do I reflect.
And I will delight myself in thy commandments, which I love.
And so will I lift up my hands unto thy commandments, which I love, and I will meditate on thy statutes.
We have reflected on thy kindness, O God, in the midst of thy temple.
BOOK FIRST: Happy is the man who walketh not in the council of the wicked, and standeth not in the way of sinners, and sitteth not in the seat of scorners;
But whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who doth meditate in his law by day and night.
I come before thee in the dawn of morning, and cry: for thy word do I wait.
My eyes are awake before the nightwatches, that I may meditate in thy saying.
This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, in order that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein; for then shalt thou make thy way prosperous, and then shalt thou have good success.
On thy precepts will I meditate, and direct my look unto thy paths.
In thy statutes will I seek my delight: I will not forget thy word.
I will sing unto the Lord while I live: I will sing praises to my God while I exist.
May my speech be agreeable to him: I will indeed rejoice in the Lord.
