Blessed are they whose ways are blameless,
who walk according to the law of the LORD.
Blessed are they who keep his statutes
and seek him with all their heart.
Yet you are near, O LORD,
and all your commands are true.
Long ago I learned from your statutes
that you established them to last forever.
How can a young man keep his way pure?
By living according to your word.
I seek you with all my heart;
do not let me stray from your commands.
