Psalm 119: 113. I hate vain thoughts: but thy law do I love.
— I hate vain thoughts or, the evil devices; or, the double-hearted imaginations; or, the intermeddling, counter coursing thoughts: that is to say, that kind of practice of some men, that sail with every wind, and seek still to have two strings to their bow. The Hebrew word doth properly signify boughs or branches, which shoot up perplexedly or confusedly in a tree. — Theodore Haak, 1618-1657.
