Do Not Let Me Be A Reproach To The Foolish

do not strive

And now, Lord, what do I wait for? My hope is in You. Deliver me from all my transgressions; do not make me the reproach of the foolish.

I was mute; I did not open my mouth because it was You who did it. Remove Your plague from me; I am consumed by the blow of Your hand. When with rebukes You correct man for iniquity, You make his beauty melt away like a moth; Surely every man is vapor. Selah (Psalms 39:7-11)

Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in the power of your hand to do so. Do not say to your neighbor,“Go, and come back, and tomorrow I will give it,”When you have it with you. Do not devise evil against your neighbor, for he dwells with you for safety’s sake. Do not strive with a man without cause, if he has done you no harm. (Proverbs 3:27-30)
