God’s Precepts

The precepts of the LORD are right, giving joy to the heart. … How I long for your precepts!

From everlasting to everlasting the LORD’s love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children’s children—with those who keep his covenant and remember to obey his precepts. … I obey your precepts and your statutes, for all my ways are known to you.

The works of his hands are faithful and just; all his precepts are trustworthy. … All who follow his precepts have good understanding.

You have laid down precepts that are to be fully obeyed. … I meditate on your precepts and consider your ways. … Cause me to understand the way of your precepts, that I may meditate on your wonderful deeds. … I gain understanding from your precepts; therefore I hate every wrong path. … and because I consider all your precepts right, I hate every wrong path.

This has been my practice: I obey your precepts. … I will walk about in freedom, for I have sought out your precepts. … I am a friend to all who fear you, to all who follow your precepts. … I have more understanding than the elders, for I obey your precepts.

See how I love your precepts; preserve my life, LORD, in accordance with your love. … I will never forget your precepts, for by them you have preserved my life. … May your hand be ready to help me, for I have chosen your precepts.
