I will keep it with all my heart.

129Your teachings are wonderful;

I obey them with all my heart.

130The explanation of your teachings gives light

and brings wisdom to the ignorant.

131In my desire for your commands

I pant with open mouth.

132Turn to me and have mercy on me

as you do on all those who love you.

133As you have promised, keep me from falling;

don't let me be overcome by evil.

so that I will not sin against you.
