Can a woman forget her sucking child, not to have mercy on the son of her body? yea, should these even forget, yet would I not forget thee.
Behold, upon the palms of my hands have I engraved thee; thy walls are continually before me.
O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good; for to eternity endureth his kindness.
Oh love the Lord, all ye his pious ones: the Lord preserveth the faithful, and recompenses the presumption of him that acteth proudly.
Hatred stirreth up strifes; but love throweth a cover over all transgressions.
Many waters are not able to quench love, nor can the rivers flood it away: if a man were to give all the wealth of his house for love, men would utterly despise him.
Cause me to hear in the morning thy kindness; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way whereon I should walk; for unto thee do I lift up my soul.
Let kindness and truth not forsake thee; bind them about thy throat; write them upon the table of thy heart:
So shalt thou find grace and good favor in the eyes of God and man.
Since thou art precious in my eyes, art honorable, and I indeed do love thee: therefore will I give men in place of thee, and nations instead of thy soul.
