CEBCommon English Bible
161Rulers oppress me without cause,
but my heart honors what you’ve said.
162I’m overjoyed at your word,
like someone who finds great treasure.
163I hate, I absolutely despise, what is false,
but I’m in love with your Instruction.
164I praise you seven times a day
for your righteous rules.
165The people who love your Instruction enjoy peace—and lots of it.
There’s no stumbling for them!
166LORD, I wait for your saving help.
I do what you’ve commanded.
167I keep your laws;
I love them so much!
168I keep your precepts and your laws
because all my ways are seen by you.
