Who can say, I have made my heart clean, I am pure from my sin?
Most men will proclaim every one his own goodness: but a faithful man who can find?
By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the Lord men depart from evil.
In God will I praise his word: in the Lord will I praise his word.
In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
The Lord will not suffer the soul of the righteous to famish: but he casteth away the substance of the wicked.
Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee.
Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.
