You have answered me.
I will declare your name
I will praise You
You who fear the Lord, praise Him!
Glorify Him & fear Him!

Proverbs 13 (a few verses that i needed to hear at that time)
He who guards his mouth preserves his life,
but he who opens wide his lips shall have destruction.

but a wicked man is loathesome & comes to shame.
By pride comes only contention,
but with the well-advised is wisdom.
He who despises the word will be destroyed,
but he who fears the commandment will be rewarded
Good understanding gains favor,
but the way of the unfaithful is hard.
Every prudent man acts with knowledge,
but a fool lays open his folly.
Poverty and shame will come to him who disdains correction,
but he who regards reproof will be honored.

Then you will understand the fear of the Lord,
And find the knowledge of God.
