Pr 9.10; 4 Macc 1.17. The Law of the Lord is perfect; it gives us new life. His teachings last forever, and they give wisdom to ordinary people. 8The Lord's instruction is right; it makes our hearts glad. His commands shine brightly, and they give us light. 9Worshiping the Lord is sacred; he will always be worshiped. All his decisions are correct and fair. 10They are worth more than the finest gold and are sweeter than honey from a honeycomb. 11By your teachings, Lord, I am warned; by obeying them, I am greatly rewarded.
