161 Princes have persecuted me without a cause,
but my heart stands in awe of your word.
162 I am as glad of your word
as one who finds great spoils.
163 As for lies, I hate and abhor them,
but your law do I love.
164 Seven times a day do I praise you,
because of your righteous judgements.
165 Great peace have they who love your law;
nothing shall make them stumble.
166 Lord, I have looked for your salvation
and I have fulfilled your commandments.
167 My soul has kept your testimonies
and greatly have I loved them.
168 I have kept your commandments and testimonies,
for all my ways are before you.
