that thou mayest prosper withersoever thou goest.

8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; 

but thou shalt meditate therein day and night,

Come ye, 

and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,

for out of Zion shall go forth the law, 

and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.

and shall rebuke many people: 

and they shall beat their swords into plowshares,
