Context Readings

The Oracle Of Agur

4 Who has gone up to heaven and come down?
Who has gathered the wind in His hands?
Who has bound up the waters in a cloak?
Who has established all the ends of the earth?
What is His name,
and what is the name of His Son—
if you know?
5 Every word of God is pure;
He is a shield to those who take refuge in Him.
6 Don’t add to His words,
or He will rebuke you, and you will be proved a liar.
