And to walk humbly with your God?

All the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord
Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

To such as keep His covenant and His testimonies.

Longsuffering and abundant in mercy and truth.

And therefore He will be exalted, that He may have mercy on you.

Blessed are all those who wait for Him.

So great is His mercy toward those who fear Him.
