You have done good things for your servant,
as you have promised, LORD.
Teach me wisdom and knowledge
because I trust your commands.
Before I suffered, I did wrong,
but now I obey your word.
You are good, and you do what is good.
Teach me your demands.
Proud people have made up lies about me,
but I will follow your orders with all my heart.
Those people have no feelings,
but I love your teachings.
It was good for me to suffer
so I would learn your demands.
Your teachings are worth more to me
than thousands of pieces of gold and silver.
