Take heart my people, take heart.
Be encouraged from My heart.
My law is perfect, converting the soul.
My statutes are right, rejoicing the heart.
Hear what I am saying –
Some things are to never change.
My testimony is sure, making wise the simple.
My commandments are pure, enlightening the eyes.
The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever
The judgments of the Lord are true,
And righteous altogether. –
More to be desired are they than gold
Yea, than much fine gold
And sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
Moreover by them Your servant is warned
And by keeping them, there is great reward.
Who can understand his errors?
Cleanse me from secret faults.
Keep back Your servant also
From presumptuous sins;
Let them not have dominion over me.
Then I shall be blameless,
And I shall be innocent of great
Let the words of my mouth and
meditation of my heart
Be acceptable in Your sight,
O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.
(ref. Ps. 19)
