97 MEM. Oh how I love thy law! All the day, is it my meditation.
98 Beyond mine enemies, will thy commandment make me wise, for, age-abidingly, shall it be mine.
99 Beyond all my teachers, have I shown discretion, for, thy testimonies, are my meditation.
100 Beyond the elders, will I show understanding, for, thy precepts, have I observed.
The words of my mouth, and the soft utterance of my heart, shall come with acceptance, before thee, O Yahweh, my Rock and my Redeemer!
My mouth, shall speak forth Wisdom, And the soft utterance of my heart be Understanding:
I will remember the doings of Yah, Surely I will remember, out of aforetime, thy wonderful way;
And will talk to myself of all thy work, And, of thy doings, will I muse:
I have remembered the days of aforetime, I have talked with myself of every deed of thine, Of the work of thy hands, I would speak:
That I may find dear delight in thy commandments, which I have loved.
That I may lift up my hands unto thy commandments, which I have loved, and may meditate in thy statutes.
We have thought, O God, upon thy lovingkindness, In the midst of thy temple:
BOOK THE FIRST How happy the man, who hath not walked in the counsel of the lawless,and, in the way of sinners, hath not stood, and, in the seat of scoffers, hath not sat;
But, in the law of Yahweh, is his delight,and, in his law, doth he talk with himself day and night.
I forestalled the twilight, and cried for help, For thy word, I waited.
Mine eyes forestalled the night-watches, To meditate in thy word.
This scroll of the law must not cease out of thy mouth, but thou must talk to thyself therein, day and night, that thou mayest take heed to do according to all that is written therein,for, then, shalt thou make thy way prosperous, and, then, shalt thou have good success.
In thy precepts, will I meditate, that I may discern thy paths.
In thy statutes, will I find my dear delight, I will not forget thy word.
I will sing to Yahweh, as long as I live! Yea I will touch the strings to my God, while I continue;
Pleasing unto him, be my meditation, I, will rejoice in Yahweh.
