Don't let me walk away from your commands. 11 I treasure your word above all else; it keeps me from sinning against you. 12 I praise you, LORD! Teach me your laws. 13 With my own mouth, I tell others the laws that you have spoken. 14 Obeying your instructions brings as much happiness as being rich. 15 I will study your teachings and follow your footsteps. 16 I will take pleasure in your laws and remember your words.
