Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground.
The LORD watches over the foreigner and sustains the fatherless and the widow, but he frustrates the ways of the wicked.
The LORD detests the way of the wicked, but he loves those who pursue righteousness.
Whoever leads the upright along an evil path will fall into their own trap, but the blameless will receive a good inheritance.
