I will keep them to the end.

Yes, I will obey it with my whole heart.

for I trust in your word.

because I love them.

I will meditate on your statutes.

for your law is my delight.

I will meditate on your precepts.

They will know your statutes.

80 Let my heart be blameless toward your decrees,

that I may not be disappointed.
