Psalms 119:7

I will praise you with uprightness of heart, when I shall have learned your righteous judgments.
Read Chapter 119

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
7. "I will confess unto Thee," he saith, "O Lord, in the directing of my heart; in that I shall have learned the judgments of Thy righteousness" (ver. 7). This is not the confession of sins, but of praise; as He also saith in whom there was no sin, "I will confess unto Thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth;" and as it is written in the Book of Ecclesiasticus "Thus shalt thou say in confession, of all the works of God, that they are very good." "I will confess unto Thee," he saith, "in the directing of my heart." Indeed, if my ways are made straight, I will confess unto Thee, since Thou hast done it, and this is Thy praise, and not mine. ...

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Justice. That all thy ordinances are most equitable, (Worthington) and when I shall have faithfully put them in practice, Ecclesiasticus xv. 9. (Theodoret)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
