7The Lord’s teachings are perfect. They give new strength. The Lord’s rules can be trusted. They make plain people wise. 8The Lord’s orders are right. They make people happy. The Lord’s commands are pure. They light up the way. 9It is good to respect the Lord. That respect will last forever. The Lord’s judgments are true. They are completely right. 10They are worth more than gold, even the purest gold. They are sweeter than honey, even the finest honey. 11They tell your servant what to do. Keeping them brings great reward.
