Psalm 119:113-120

I hate the double-minded, but I love your law.

You are my hiding place and my shield; I hope in your word.

Go away from me, you evildoers, that I may keep the commandments of my God.

Uphold me according to your promise, that I may live, and let me not be put to shame in my hope.

Hold me up, that I may be safe and have regard for your statutes continually.

You spurn all who go astray from your statutes; for their cunning is in vain.

All the wicked of the earth you count as dross; therefore I love your decrees.

My flesh trembles for fear of you, and I am afraid of your judgments.
Pointing towards God. That’s what I hear in this passage today – moving from the colorless and dry to the vivid and beautiful. God!s statues, Word, commandments – they lead to life and life abundant.
