Page 6 - Create in me a clean heart, O God; And renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence; And take not thy Holy Spirit from me.
Page 262 - Let, I pray thee, thy merciful kindness be for my comfort, according to thy word unto thy servant.
Page 296 - For the priest's lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the law at his mouth : for he is the messenger of the LORD of hosts.
Page 64 - And, lo, thou art unto them as a very lovely song of one that hath a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument: for they hear thy words, but they do them not.
