33 Teach me, O Lord, the perfect way of thy precepts divine, And to observe it to the end I shall my heart incline. 34 Give understanding unto me, so keep thy law shall I; Yea, ev'n with my whole heart I shall observe it carefully. 35 In thy law's path make me to go; for I delight therein. 36 My heart unto thy testimonies, and not to greed, incline. 37 Turn thou away my sight and eyes from viewing vanity; And in thy good and holy way be pleased to quicken me. 38 Confirm to me thy gracious word, which I did gladly hear, Ev'n to thy servant, Lord, who is devoted to thy fear. 39 Turn thou away my feared reproach; for good thy judgments be. 40 Lo, for thy precepts I have longed; in thy truth quicken me.
