I despise those who can’t keep commitments,
for I passionately love your revelation-light!
You’re my place of quiet retreat, and your wraparound presence
becomes my shield as I wrap myself in your Word!
Go away! Leave me, all you workers of wickedness,
for you can’t stop me from following every command of my God.
Lord, strengthen my inner being by the promises of your Word
so that I may live faithful and unashamed for you.
Lift me up and I will be safe.
Empower me to live every moment in the light of your ways.
Lord, you reject those who reject your laws,
for they fool no one but themselves!
The wicked are thrown away, discarded and valueless.
That’s why I will keep loving all of your laws!
My body trembles in holy awe of you, leaving me speechless,
for I’m frightened of your righteous judgments.
