You brought before you the vessels from his temple, and you and your nobles, together with your wives and concubines, drank wine from them.

Then the Lord said to me, "I, the Lord, say: 'O nation of Israel, can I not deal with you as this potter deals with the clay? In my hands, you, O nation of Israel, are just like the clay in this potter's hand.'


Praise our God, you nations! Loudly proclaim his praise! He preserves our lives and does not allow our feet to slip.


Praise our God, you nations! Loudly proclaim his praise!



Now to the one who is able to keep you from falling, and to cause you to stand, rejoicing, without blemish before his glorious presence, to the only God our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, power, and authority, before all time, and now, and for all eternity. Amen.

If I say, "My foot is slipping," your loyal love, O Lord, supports me.
