Psalm 143:10 - may Your good Spirit lead me on level ground

NIV Teach me to do your will,
for you are my God;
may your good Spirit
lead me on level ground.
KJV Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness.
NASB Teach me to do Your will,
For You are my God;
Let Your good Spirit lead me on level ground.
Psalm 143:10


The psalmist not only wanted to know the will of God (v. 8b), he also wanted a heart trained to obey that will. God, after all, was his God, and what could be more proper than for the creature to obey his Creator? Everyone has his ups and downs in life, but not everyone has as rocky a road as David. His desire here is that the Lord's good Spirit will lead him over smoother terrain, free from the extreme forms of danger and disaster to which he had been exposed.
