65 You have dealt graciously with your servant,
according to your word, O Lord.
66 O teach me true understanding and knowledge,
for I have trusted in your commandments.
67 Before I was afflicted I went astray,
but now I keep your word.
68 You are gracious and do good;
O Lord, teach me your statutes.
69 The proud have smeared me with lies,
but I will keep your commandments with my whole heart.
70 Their heart has become gross with fat,
but my delight is in your law.
71 It is good for me that I have been afflicted,
that I may learn your statutes.
72 The law of your mouth is dearer to me
than a hoard of gold and silver.
