The Ninth Commandment
End the evil of those who are wicked, and defend the righteous. For you look deep within the mind and heart, O righteous God.
The LORD examines both the righteous and the wicked. He hates those who love violence.
You have tested my thoughts and examined my heart in the night. You have scrutinized me and found nothing wrong. I am determined not to sin in what I say.

O my people, trust in him at all times. Pour out your heart to him, for God is our refuge. Interlude
