Meditations on the Excellencies of the Word of God Part 2

How can a young person live a clean life?
By carefully reading the map of your Word.

I’m single-minded in pursuit of you;
don’t let me miss the road signs you’ve posted.

I’ve banked your promises in the vault of my heart
so I won’t sin myself bankrupt.

Be blessed, God;
train me in your ways of wise living.
I’ll transfer to my lips
all the counsel that comes from your mouth;

I delight far more in what you tell me about living
than in gathering a pile of riches.

I ponder every morsel of wisdom from you,
I attentively watch how you’ve done it.

I relish everything you’ve told me of life,
I won’t forget a word of it.
