9 How can a young man keep his way pure? By living according to your word. 
10 I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands. 11 I have hidden your word in my heart ?that I might not sin against you. 12 Praise be to you, O LORD; ?teach me your decrees.13 With my lips I recount all the laws that come from your mouth. 14 I rejoice in following your statutes as one rejoices in great riches.
15 I meditate on your precepts ?and consider your ways. 16 I delight in your decrees; I will not neglect your word.
