5 For you are sweet and mild, Lord, and plentiful in mercy to all who call upon you.
6 Pay attention, Lord, to my prayer, and attend to the voice of my supplication.
7 In the day of my tribulation, I cried out to you, because you heeded me.
8 There is no one like you among the gods, O Lord, and there is no one like you in your works.
9 All the nations, which you have made, will draw near and adore in your presence, O Lord. And they will glorify your name.
10 For you are great, and you perform wonders. You alone are God.
11 Lead me, O Lord, in your way, and I will walk in your truth. May my heart rejoice, so that it will fear your name.
12 I will confess to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart. And I will glorify your name in eternity.
13 For your mercy toward me is great, and you have rescued my soul from the lower part of Hell.
14 O God, the iniquitous have risen up against me, and the synagogue of the powerful have sought my soul, and they have not placed you in their sight.
15 And you, Lord God, are compassionate and merciful, being patient and full of mercy and truthful.
16 Look down upon me and have mercy on me. Grant your authority to your servant, and bring salvation to the son of your handmaid.
Wisdom 12:13, 16-19
13 For neither is there any other God but you, who has care of all, to whom you would show that you did not give judgment unjustly.
16 For your power is the beginning of justice, and, because you are Lord of all, you make yourself to be lenient to all.
17 For you reveal power to those who do not believe you to be perfect in power, and you expose the arrogance of those who do not know you.
18 Yet, you are the master of power, since you judge with tranquility, and since you administer us with great reverence; for it is close to you to be used whenever you will.
19 But you have taught your people, through such works, that they must be just and humane, and you have made your sons to be of good hope, because in judging you provide a place for repentance from sins.
