What does Psalm 119:104 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Psalms 119:104

Through thy precepts I get understanding
Of the will of God; of his worship, the nature and manner of it; of his ordinances, their use and importance; and of his doctrines, and the excellency of them;

therefore I hate every false way;
of worship; all superstition and will worship, the commandments and inventions of men, and every false doctrine; all lies in hypocrisy, for no lie is of the truth; every thing that is contrary to the word of God, and is not according to truth and godliness. The Targum is,

``I hate every lying man.''
