Do good, O LORD, to those who are good, and to those who are upright in their hearts! But those who turn aside to their crooked ways the LORD will lead away with evildoers! Peace be upon Israel!
Lord, a warning here to Your church to maintain our trust in You and not to turn to the wicked ways of the world. And so, Lord, this begins with me, to be diligent to not stretch out my hand to take up the scepter of wickedness and to be diligent to seek Your word and instruction.
