I am a companion of all those who fear You,
And of those who keep Your precepts.
My eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me;
He who walks in a blameless way is the one who will minister to me.
As for the saints who are in the earth,
They are the majestic ones in whom is all my delight.
May those who fear You turn to me,
Even those who know Your testimonies.
Depart from me, evildoers,
That I may observe the commandments of my God.
“Bring my soul out of prison,
So that I may give thanks to Your name;
The righteous will surround me,
For You will deal bountifully with me.”
He who walks with wise men will be wise,
But the companion of fools will suffer harm.
Then those who feared the Lord spoke to one another, and the Lord gave attention and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who fear the Lord and who esteem His name.
Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness?
what we have seen and heard we proclaim to you also, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ.
We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love abides in death.
