^97O how love I thy law! it is
my study all the day:
^98It makes me wiser than my foes;
for it doth with me stay.
^99Than all my teachers now I have
more understanding far;
Because my meditation
thy testimonies are.
^100In understanding I excel
those that are ancients;
For I endeavoured to keep
all thy commandements.
^101My feet from each ill way I stay'd,
that I may keep thy word.
^102I from thy judgments have not swerv'd;
for thou hast taught me, Lord.
^103How sweet unto my taste, O Lord,
are all thy words of truth!
Yea, I do find them sweeter far
than honey to my mouth.
^104I through thy precepts, that are pure,
do understanding get;
I therefore ev'ry way that's false
with all my heart do hate.
