1 tn Heb “better to me [is] the law of your mouth than thousands of gold and silver.”

2 tn Heb “I hold back my feet.”

3 tn Heb “your word.” Many medieval Hebrew mss read the plural.

4 tn Heb “How smooth they are to my palate, your word, more than honey to my mouth.” A few medieval Hebrew mss, as well as several other ancient witnesses, read the plural “your words,” which can then be understood as the subject of the plural verb “they are smooth.”

5 tn Heb “for the joy of my heart [are] they.”
