when they prayed: "Have mercy on me, Lord! See how I am oppressed by those who hate me, O one who can snatch me away from the gates of death!
I will declare your name to my countrymen! In the middle of the assembly I will praise you!
Rescue me from the guilt of murder, O God, the God who delivers me! Then my tongue will shout for joy because of your deliverance.
Then we, your people, the sheep of your pasture, will continually thank you. We will tell coming generations of your praiseworthy acts.
Those whom the Lord has ransomed will return; they will enter Zion with a happy shout. Unending joy will crown them, happiness and joy will overwhelm them; grief and suffering will disappear.
But God, being rich in mercy, because of his great love with which he loved us,
to him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
1 Peter 2:9
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people of his own, so that you may proclaim the virtues of the one who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.
