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.
