Seeing Yourself Clearer, Knowing God Deeper
Words of Agur
1 The words of Agur the son of Jakeh, even the prophecy:
The man spake unto Ithiel,
even unto Ithiel and Ucal,
2 Surely I am more brutish than any man,
And have not the understanding of a man.
3 I neither learned wisdom,
Nor have the knowledge of the holy.
4 Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended?
Who hath gathered the wind in his fists?
Who hath bound the waters in a garment?
Who hath established all the ends of the earth?
What is his name, and what is his son's name,
If thou canst tell?
5 Every word of God is pure:
He is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.
6 Add thou not unto his words,
Lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.
7 Two things have I required of thee;
Deny me them not before I die:
8 Remove far from me vanity and lies:
Give me neither poverty nor riches;
Feed me with food convenient for me:
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.
