The Double-Minded I Abhor

  1. The double-minded I abhor,
    but how I love your law, O LORD!
    You are my hiding place and shield;
    I’ve set my hope upon your word.
  2. Depart from me, you wicked men,
    that I may in God’s law remain.
    Uphold my life, LORD, by your word;
    let not my hope be put to shame.
  3. O keep me safe and hold me up
    that I upon your word may gaze.
    You spurn those who forsake your laws;
    their false deceit is all in vain.
  4. The wicked you discard like dross;
    for this I love your holy law.
    My body quakes for fear of you;
    of your commands I stand in awe.
