1 Of David himself. O Lord, I will confess to you with my whole heart, for you have heard the words of my mouth. I will sing psalms to you in the sight of the Angels.
2 I will adore before your holy temple, and I will confess your name: it is above your mercy and your truth. For you have magnified your holy name above all.
3 On whatever day that I will call upon you: hear me. You will multiply virtue in my soul.
4 May all the kings of the earth confess to you, O Lord. For they have heard all the words of your mouth.
5 And let them sing in accordance with the ways of the Lord. For great is the glory of the Lord.
6 For the Lord is exalted, and he looks with favor on the humble. But the lofty he knows from a distance.
7 If I wander into the midst of tribulation, you will revive me. For you extended your hand against the wrath of my enemies. And your right hand has accomplished my salvation.
8 The Lord will provide retribution on my behalf. O Lord, your mercy is forever. Do not disdain the works of your hands.
Esther 7:12, 14-16, 23-25
12 She answered him, and ordered him say to Mordecai:
14 And when Mordecai had heard this, he again sent word to Esther, saying, "Do not think that you will save so much as your own soul, just because you are in the king's house and are above all the Jews.
15 For, if you remain silent now, the Jews will be delivered through some other opportunity, but you and your father's house will perish. And who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for this reason, so that you would be prepared for such a time as this?"
16 And he entrusted her (there was no question but that it was Mordecai) to go in to the king, and to petition on behalf of her people and her native land.
23 You are Lord of all, and there is no one who can resist your majesty.
24 You know everything, and you know that it was not out of arrogance or indignation or some desire for glory that I did this, so that I refused to adore the very proud Haman.
25 (For I was freely prepared, for the sake of the salvation of Israel, to have willingly kissed even the footsteps of his feet.)
