Amen.

LMIGHTY God, the Fountain of all wisdom, who knowest our necessities before we ask, and our ignorance in asking, we beseech thee to have compassion on our infirmities, and grant that those things which we faithfully ask may be effectually obtained, and those things which for our unworthiness we dare not, and for our blindness we cannot ask, vouchsafe to give us for the sake of thine infinite mercy in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.

For the transgression of a land many are the princes thereof: but by a man of understanding and knowledge the state thereof shall be prolonged.

A poor man that oppresseth the poor is like a sweeping rain, which leaveth no food.
