7 The law of the Lord is perfect,
refreshing the soul.
The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy,
making wise the simple.
8 The precepts of the Lord are right,
giving joy to the heart.
The commands of the Lord are radiant,
giving light to the eyes.
9 The fear of the Lord is pure,
The decrees of the Lord are firm,
and all of them are righteous.
10 They are more precious than gold,
than much pure gold;
they are sweeter than honey,
than honey from the honeycomb.
11 By them your servant is warned;
in keeping them there is great reward.
God’s laws and commands revive you. They make you wise. They bring joy to your heart. They give you insight. They warn you. They reward you. God’s laws and commands are lights that light your path. God’s laws point at danger to warn you, and they point to success to guide you. Bind God’s Word to your mind, heart, and soul.
