Your Word Is My Source of Hope
I hate those with divided loyalties, but I love your instructions.
You are my refuge and my shield; your word is my source of hope.
Get out of my life, you evil-minded people, for I intend to obey the commands of my God. LORD, sustain me as you promised, that I may live!
Do not let my hope be crushed.
Sustain me, and I will be rescued;
then I will meditate continually on your decrees.
But you have rejected all who stray from your decrees.
They are only fooling themselves.
You skim off the wicked of the earth like scum; no wonder I love to obey your laws!
I tremble in fear of you; I stand in awe of your regulations.
