97 [MEM] Oh how I love your law! It is my meditation all the day.
98 Your commandments make me wiser than my enemies; For they are ever with me.
99 I have more understanding than all my teachers; For your testimonies are my meditation.
100 I understand more than the aged, Because I have kept your precepts.
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in your sight, O Yahweh, my rock, and my redeemer.
My mouth will speak wisdom; And the meditation of my heart will be of understanding.
I will make mention of the deeds of Yah; For I will remember your wonders of old.
I will meditate also on all your work, And muse on your doings.
I remember the days of old; I meditate on all your doings; I muse on the work of your hands.
And I will delight myself in your commandments, Which I have loved.
I will lift up my hands also to your commandments, which I have loved; And I will meditate on your statutes.
We have thought on your loving-kindness, O God, In the midst of your temple.
BOOK I. Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked; and in the way of sinners, does not stand, and in the seat of scoffers, does not sit.
But rather in the law of Yahweh, does he delight; and in his law does he meditate, day and night.
I anticipated the dawning of the morning, and cried: I hoped in your words.
My eyes anticipated the night-watches, That I might meditate on your word.
This book of the law will not depart out of your mouth, but you will meditate on it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it: for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.
I will meditate on your precepts, And have respect to your ways.
I will delight myself in your statutes: I will not forget your word.
I will sing to Yahweh as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have any being.
Let your meditation be sweet to him: I will rejoice in Yahweh.
