Teach me your decrees, O Lord;
I will keep them to the end. Give me understanding and I will obey your instructions;
 I will put them into practice with all my heart.
 Make me walk along the path of your commands,
for that is where my happiness is found.
Give me an eagerness for your laws
 rather than a love for money!
Turn my eyes from worthless things,
and give me life through your word.
