Psalm 119:9-16


9 How can a young man live a clean life?

He must be careful to obey your message.

10 I bring all my thoughts to you.

Do not let me forget to obey your commands.

11 I always keep your message in my mind,

so that I do not do anything bad against you.

12 Lord, everyone should praise you!

Please teach me your laws.

13 You have taught us your rules.

I want to speak them aloud for others to hear.

14 Your rules give me a happy life.

When I obey them, it is better than being rich!

15 I want to think carefully about your teaching.

You have shown me the best way to live.

16 Your laws make me very happy.

I will not forget what you have taught me.
