Psalm 119:65-72

You have dealt well with Your servant, O LORD, according to Your word. Teach me good judgment and knowledge, For I believe Your commandments.

Before I was afflicted I went astray, But now I keep Your word. You are good, and do good; Teach me Your statutes.

The proud have forged a lie against me, But I will keep Your precepts with my whole heart Their heart is as fat as grease, But I delight in Your law.

It is good for me that I have been afflicted, That I may learn Your statutes. The law of Your mouth is better to me Than thousands of coins of gold and silver.

Our Psalmist focuses on the relationship between the Word of God and himself. He recognizes that it is only through a complete undestanding of the Law can he be obedient to it. And that that understanding is far more precious than all the wealth of the world.
