Keep me from deceitful ways; be gracious to me through your law.
Remove the false way from me, And graciously grant me Your law.
Keep me from lying to myself; give me the privilege of knowing your law.
Barricade the road that goes Nowhere; grace me with your clear revelation.
Take from me every false way; and in mercy give me your law.
Put false ways far from me; and graciously teach me your law.
Remove from me the way of lying, And grant me Your law graciously.
