“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”

and naked shall I go back there.
The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away;
blessed be the name of the Lord!”

“My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord;
my spirit rejoices in God my savior.

The Mighty One has done great things for me,
and holy is his name.
