Your decrees are the theme of my song wherever I lodge.
Your statutes are my songs In the house of my pilgrimage.
Your principles have been the music of my life throughout the years of my pilgrimage.
I set your instructions to music and sing them as I walk this pilgrim way.
Your rules have been melodies to me, while I have been living in strange lands.
Your statutes have been my songs wherever I make my home.
Your statutes have been my songs In the house of my pilgrimage.

1 tn Heb “songs were your statutes to me.”
2 tn Heb “in the house of my dwelling place.” Some take the Hebrew noun מָגוֹר (magor) in the sense of “temporary abode,” and see this as a reference to the psalmist’s status as a resident alien (see v. 19). But the noun can refer to a dwelling place in general (see Ps 55:15).
