No Prevarication And Only My Daily Bread
7 “Two things I ask of you, Lord;
do not refuse me before I die:
8 Keep falsehood and lies far from me;
give me neither poverty nor riches,
but give me only my daily bread.
9 Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you
and say, ‘Who is the Lord?’
Or I may become poor and steal,
and so dishonor the name of my God.
Falsehood, lies, poverty, and riches are deceptive.
Provide my daily needs.
Make me virtuous person so that I will not disgrace the name of God.
