C “Far be it from us that we should forsake the Lord to serve other gods; we will serve the Lord who is our God." (Joshua 34:16, 18)
L The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and God's ears are open to their cry. The righteous cry and the Lord hears them and delivers them from all their troubles. (Psalm 34:15, 17)
