Psalms 119:128

Therefore I esteem all your precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way.
Read Chapter 119

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
127. "Therefore," he saith, "was I made straight unto all Thy commandments" (ver. 128). I was made straight, doubtless, because I loved them; and I clung by love to them, which were straight, that I might also myself become straight. Then what he addeth, naturally follows: "and every unrighteous way I utterly abhor." For how could it be that he who loved the straight could do aught save abhor an unrighteous way? For as, if he loved gold and precious stones, he would abhor all that might bring loss of such property: thus, since he loved the commandments of God, he abhorred the path of iniquity, as one of the most savage rocks in the sailor's track, whereon he must needs suffer shipwreck of things so precious. That this may not be his lot, he who saileth on the wood of the Cross with the divine commandments as his freight, steereth far from thence. Pe.

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Directed. In my steps. (Berthier) Pagnin, "I judged all, yea all thy precepts to be right. "(Haydock) The hatred of the wicked made the love of the beauty of the law increase in my breast. (Worthington)
