Through Your precepts I get understanding; therefore I hate every false way.
Lord, it is when we follow Your rules that Your words are sweeter than honey in our mouths. We have to be reminded that when we are not obedient to You, Your words serve as a reminder of how sweet life could have been. Then that knowledge brings sorrow and repentance to our hearts, then that understanding brings revulsion to our souls, then Your law serves to convict us of our errors and return our eyes to You. Then the honey returns to our mouths, and we can again sing with that joy that comes from Your presence.
