I hate every hypocrite; your teaching I love.
You are my refuge and shield; in your word I hope.
Depart from me, you wicked, that I may observe the commands of my God.
Sustain me by your promise that I may live; do not disappoint me in my hope.
Strengthen me that I may be safe, ever to contemplate your laws.
You reject all who stray from your laws, for vain is their deceit.
Like dross you regard all the wicked on earth; therefore I love your decrees.
My flesh shudders with dread of you; I hold your edicts in awe.
Psalm 119 continued – verses 113-120
