I hate the double-minded, But I love Your law. Psalm 119:113-120

I hate the double-minded, But I love Your law. You aremy hiding place and my shield; I hope in Your word. Depart from me, you evildoers, For I will keep the commandments of my God!

Uphold me according to Your word, that I may live; And do not let me be ashamed of my hope. Hold me up, and I shall be safe, And I shall observe Your statutes continually.

You reject all those who stray from Your statutes, For their deceit isfalsehood. You put away all the wicked of the earth likedross; Therefore I love Your testimonies. My flesh trembles for fear of You, And I am afraid of Your judgments.

Interesting for each of these mini-paragraphs end with an avowal of obedience, adherence or respect. My favorite post-exciliic scribe understands the relationship between these emotions and an understanding of being nestled in the arms of the LORD, God the Alinghty. Oh, that the modern Church would desplay the same understanding.
