25I am laid low in the dust;
preserve my life according to your word.
26I gave an account of my ways and you answered me;
teach me your decrees.
27Cause me to understand the way of your precepts,
that I may meditate on your wonderful deeds.
28My soul is weary with sorrow;
strengthen me according to your word.
29Keep me from deceitful ways;
be gracious to me and teach me your law.
30I have chosen the way of faithfulness;
I have set my heart on your laws.
31I hold fast to your statutes, Lord;
do not let me be put to shame.
32I run in the path of your commands,
for you have broadened my understanding.
