Psalm 34:4-19 and Isaiah 55:10-11
4 Magnify the Lord with me, and let us extol his name in itself.
5 I sought the Lord, and he heeded me, and he carried me away from all my tribulations.
6 Approach him and be enlightened, and your faces will not be confounded.
7 This poor one cried out, and the Lord heeded him, and he saved him from all his tribulations.
8 The Angel of the Lord will encamp around those who fear him, and he will rescue them.
9 Taste and see that the Lord is sweet. Blessed is the man who hopes in him.
10 Fear the Lord, all you his saints. For there is no destitution for those who fear him.
11 The rich have been needy and hungry, but those who seek the Lord will not be deprived of any good thing.
12 Come forward, sons. Listen to me. I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
13 Which is the man who wills life, who chooses to see good days?
14 Prohibit your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking deceit.
15 Turn away from evil, and do good. Inquire about peace, and pursue it.
16 The eyes of the Lord are on the just, and his ears are with their prayers.
17 But the countenance of the Lord is upon those who do evil, to perish the remembrance of them from the earth.
18 The just cried out, and the Lord heard them, and he freed them from all their tribulations.
19 The Lord is near to those who are troubled in heart, and he will save the humble in spirit.
10 And in the same manner as rain and snow descend from heaven, and no longer return there, but soak the earth, and water it, and cause it to bloom and to provide seed to the sower and bread to the hungry,
11 so also will my word be, which will go forth from my mouth. It will not return to me empty, but it will accomplish whatever I will, and it will prosper in the tasks for which I sent it.
