Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.
I love the Lord, because he hath heard my voice and my supplications.
Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
The Lord lifteth up the meek: he casteth the wicked down to the ground.
For the Lord taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.
But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
And Samuel said, Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.
For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense; and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.
