Two Things


Two things I ask of you Lord before I die – just two things:
One, Prevent me from living a lie.
Two, Prevent me being poor enough to want to steal and So rich that I congratulate myself.
The original is in Proverbs 30:7-9Proverbs 30:7-9
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

7 Two things have I required of thee; deny me them not before I die: deny...: Heb. withhold not from me 8 Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me: convenient...: Heb. of my allowance 9 Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain. deny...: Heb. belie thee
