If I am understanding the question correctly,I would say that this is simply a matter of how the Hebrew or Greek text of the verse is translated or expressed. The verse could also be rendered with equal validity as, "They turned their backs on Your law," which would have the same idiomatic meaning in either the original text or modern English (that is, that they ignored God's law, or did not pay attention to it or obey it).
