Remove far from me falsehood and lying;
    give me neither poverty nor riches;

lest I be full and deny you
    and say, “Who is the Lord?”
or lest I be poor and steal
    and profane the name of my God.

Keep falsehood and lies far from me;
    give me neither poverty nor riches,

Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you
    and say, ‘Who is the Lord?’
Or I may become poor and steal,
    and so dishonor the name of my God.
