then hear thou their prayer and their supplication in heaven thy dwelling-place, and maintain their cause;
And let these my words, wherewith I have made supplication before Jehovah, be nigh unto Jehovah our God day and night, that he maintain the cause of his servant, and the cause of his people Israel, as every day shall require;
then hear thou from heaven their prayer and their supplication, and maintain their cause.
then hear thou from heaven, even from thy dwelling-place, their prayer and their supplications, and maintain their cause, and forgive thy people who have sinned against thee.
Behold, he will slay me; I have no hope: Nevertheless I will maintain my ways before him.
That he would maintain the right of a man with God, And of a son of man with his neighbor!
Well is it with the man that dealeth graciously and lendeth; He shall maintain his cause in judgment.
I know that Jehovah will maintain the cause of the afflicted, And justice for the needy.
Faithful is the saying, and concerning these things I desire that thou affirm confidently, to the end that they who have believed God may be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men:
And let our people also learn to maintain good works for necessary uses, that they be not unfruitful.
