Authorized Version | Psalms | Psalm 119
113 I hate vain thoughts: but thy law do I love.
114 Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word.

119 Thou puttest away all the wicked of the earth like dross: therefore I love thy testimonies.
120 My flesh trembleth for fear of thee; and I am afraid of thy judgments.

Abiecisti omnes qui adversantur praecepta tua quia mendax cogitatio eorum.
Quasi scoriam conputasti omnes impios terrae propterea dilexi testimonia tua.
Horripilavit a timore tuo caro mea et iudicia tua timui.
