Or your just and righteous decrees; also verses 62, 106, 160, 164
Or all the just decrees
Or your just decrees; also verses 30, 39, 43, 52, 75, 102, 108, 137, 156, 175
Or for you set my heart free
Or keep it as my reward
Hebrew How many are the days of your servant?
Or the elders
Or statutes; the reward is eternal
