As for me, may my prayer come to You, O Lord,
at a favorable moment;
O God, in Your abundant faithfulness,
answer me with Your sure deliverance.
Keep lies and false words from me;
Give me neither poverty nor riches,
But provide me with my daily bread . . .
God is our refuge and stronghold,
a help in trouble, very near.
Therefore we are not afraid
though the earth reels,
though mountains topple into the sea ~
its waters rage and foam;
in its swell mountains quake. Selah. . . .
[but] The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our haven. Selah.
Tehillim/Psalms 46.2-4, 12
