Teach me, O Lord, the way of thy statutes

Teach me, O Lord, the way of thy statutes; and I shall keep it unto the end.


Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law; yea, I shall observe it with my whole heart.

Make me to go in the path of thy commandments; for therein do I delight.

Incline my heart unto thy testimonies, and not to covetousness.

Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity; and quicken thou me in thy way.

(Psalms 119: 33-37)
