The Just Shall Live by Faith

I will (A)stand my watch
And set myself on the rampart,
And watch to see what He will say to me,
And what I will answer when I am corrected.

The Just Live by Faith

Then the Lord answered me and said:

(B)“Write the vision
And make it plain on tablets,
That he may run who reads it.
For (C)the vision is yet for an appointed time;
But at the end it will speak, and it will (D)not lie.
Though it tarries, (E)wait for it;
Because it will (F)surely come,
It will not tarry.

“Behold the proud,
His soul is not upright in him;
But the (G)just shall live by his faith.

Woe to the Wicked

“Indeed, because he transgresses by wine,
He is a proud man,
And he does not stay at home.
Because he (H)enlarges his desire as [a]hell,
And he is like death, and cannot be satisfied,
He gathers to himself all nations
And heaps up for himself all peoples.

A Hymn of Faith

17 Though the fig tree may not blossom,
Nor fruit be on the vines;
Though the labor of the olive may fail,
And the fields yield no food;
Though the flock may be cut off from the fold,
And there be no herd in the stalls—
18 Yet I will (A)rejoice in the Lord,
I will joy in the God of my salvation.

19 [a]The Lord God is my strength;
He will make my feet like (B)deer’s feet,
And He will make me (C)walk on my high hills.

To the Chief Musician. With my stringed instruments.
