New International Version (NIV)
6 if you are pure and upright,
even now he will rouse himself on your behalf
and restore you to your prosperous state.
7 Your beginnings will seem humble,
so prosperous will your future be.
8 “Ask the former generation
and find out what their ancestors learned,
Your heart is wider and deeper than the ocean. It is filled with love for all of creation. Whether we feel You and hear You, You are here. Your very essence is that of love. It is an incomprehensible force. While the whole world has prepared to meet You on the battlefield with club and sword, You have silently won us back with the outpouring of Your love. We give You praise from every rooftop, from every dark and dreary pit. You confuse the wise and confound the proud while letting the simple and the meek inherit eternal grace.
Thank You, Lord, for every good thing.
In the name of the King,
