TODAY’S BIBLE READING (PROVERBS 30:5-9)

26 Sep

(Week 25 of the year: Wednesday)

GIVE ME NEITHER POVERTY NOR RICHES, GRANT ME ONLY MY SHARE OF BREAD TO EAT.

Every word of God is fire tried: he is a buckler to them that hope in him.

Add not any thing to his words, lest thou be reproved, and found a liar:

Two things I have asked of thee, deny them not to me before I die.

Remove far from me vanity, and lying words. Give me neither beggary, nor riches: give me only the necessities of life:

Lest perhaps being filled, I should be tempted to deny, and say: Who is the Lord? or being compelled by poverty, I should steal, and forswear the name of my God.

V. The word of the Lord.
R. Thanks be to God.
