Lord, as I read your Word, humble me and show me your ways. Let your will be done that I may have Christ and see him on every page. That His righteousness, and not my own, is sought and received. Not of my merit but of His; given to me as a gift. Amen.
A Psalm by David.
1 Yahweh, who shall dwell in your sanctuary? Who shall live on your holy hill? 2 He who walks blamelessly and does what is right, and speaks truth in his heart; 3 he who doesn’t slander with his tongue, nor does evil to his friend, nor casts slurs against his fellow man; 4 in whose eyes a vile man is despised, but who honors those who fear Yahweh; he who keeps an oath even when it hurts, and doesn’t change; 5 he who doesn’t lend out his money for usury, nor take a bribe against the innocent. He who does these things shall never be shaken.
