A little doggerel, part deux

How long, O Katherine? Wilt thou forget Spot for ever?
How long wilt thou hide thy face from him?

Why dost thou hide thy face
And count Spot as thy enemy?

Spot panteth for your voice
To smite humanism and nuance.

To put Tolerance where the Sun
Doth not shine.

To banish Thought from Dogma
And Reason from scruple.

Fly home my muse, else
Spot may perish.

A free box of kibble to the first reader who correctly identifies the Biblical paraphrases.

The only one I can get without looking is the ever popular Psalms 13...which is used in many a good hymnal. This is my guess:

Psalms 13

Spot won't say whether Psalm 13 is right or not, but the winner must get all of them.
