Horror hath taken hold upon me because of the wicked that forsake thy law. Psalm 119:53 Horror hath taken the field, Hold me close. Upon me place your wing, Because of angry words, The wicked proudly wound. That behavior illustrates corruption, Forsake not thy servant! Thy law surrounds me like a fence.
