From The Voice verses 7-10:
The Eternal One's law is perfect, turning lives around.
His Words are reliable and true, instilling wisdom to open minds.
The Eternal One's directions are correct, giving satisfaction to the heart. God's commandments are clear, lending clarity to the eyes.
The awe of the Eternal is clean, sustaining for all of eternity. The Eternal's decisions are sound; they are right through and through.
They are worth more than gold - even more than abundant, pure gold.
They are sweeter to the tongue than honey or drippings of the honeycomb.
Then ending with verse 14:
May the words that come out of my mouth and the musings of my heart meet with Your gracious approval, O Eternal One, my Rock, O Eternal One, my Redeemer.
I love "His Words are reliable and true, instilling wisdom to open minds." How I need wisdom and it's good to be reminded that His Words are indeed reliable and true.
