Original text and translations
How shall young people cleanse their ways?
By taking heed thereto according to your word.
With my whole heart have I sought You;
O let me not wander from your commandments.
Your word have I hid in my heart,
that I might not sin against You.
Blessed are You, O Lord: teach me your statutes.
With my lips have I declared all the judgments of your mouth.
I have rejoiced in the way of your testimonies, as much as in all riches.
I will meditate in your precepts, and have respect unto your ways.
I will delight myself in your statutes: I will not forget your word.
