Bible: Psalm 119:67-72

119:67 Before I was afflicted I used to stray off, 1 

but now I keep your instructions. 2 

119:68 You are good and you do good.

Teach me your statutes!

119:69 Arrogant people smear my reputation with lies, 3 

but I observe your precepts with all my heart.

119:70 Their hearts are calloused, 4 

but I find delight in your law.

119:71 It was good for me to suffer,

so that I might learn your statutes.

119:72 The law you have revealed is more important to me

than thousands of pieces of gold and silver. 5
