^9By what means shall a young man learn
his way to purify?
If he according to thy word
thereto attentive be.
^10Unfeignedly thee have I sought
with all my soul and heart:
O let me not from the right path
of thy commands depart.
^11Thy word I in my heart have hid,
that I offend not thee.
^12O Lord, thou ever blessed art,
thy statutes teach thou me.
^13The judgments of thy mouth each one
my lips declared have:
^14More joy thy testimonies' way
than riches all me gave.
^15I will thy holy precepts make
And carefully I'll have respect
unto thy ways each one.
^16Upon thy statutes my delight
shall constantly be set:
And, by thy grace, I never will
thy holy word forget.
