"Two things I ask of You, Lord;
do not refuse me before I die:
Keep falsehood and lies far from me;
give me neither poverty nor riches,
but give me only my daily bread.
Other wise, I may have too much and disown You
and say, 'Who is the Lord?'
Or I may become poor and steal,
and so dishonor the name of my God."

who fans the coals into flame and forges a weapon fit for its work.

This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
and this is their vindication from Me," declares the Lord.
