113 Deceitful thoughts and practices
I utterly detest;
But to thy law affection bear
Too great to be exprest.
114 My hiding place, my refuge-tow'r,
And shield art thou, O Lord;
I firmly anchor all my hopes
On thy unerring word.
115 Hence, ye that trade in wickedness,
Approach not my abode;
For firmly I resolve to keep
The precepts of my God.
116 According to thy gracious word,
From danger set me free;
Nor make me of those hopes asham'd,
That I repose in thee.
117 Uphold me, so shall I be safe,
And rescu'd from distress;
To thy decrees continually
My just respect address.
118 the wicked thou hast trod to earth,
Who from thy statutes stray'd;
Their vile deceit the just reward,
Of their own falsehood made.
119 The wicked from thy holy land
Thou dost like dross remove;
I therefore, with such justice charm'd,
Thy testimonies love.
120 Yet with that love they make me dread
Lest I should so offend,
When on transgressors I behold
Thy judgments thus descend.
