Psalm 19:7-19 (NIV)
The law of the Lord is perfect,
reviving the soul.
The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy,
making wise the simple.
The precepts of the Lord are right,
giving joy to the heart.
The commands of the Lord are radiant,
giving light to the eyes.
The fear of the Lord is pure,
The ordinances of the Lord are sure and altogether righteous.
They are more precious than gold,
than much pure gold:
They are sweeter than honey,
than honey from the comb.
