They laugh at weakness, Draw nigh with strength. That your glory may increase, Follow mercy with comfort. After comfort give life, Mischief will die. They are far from your word, Far from your presence. Thy law draws me near. They draw nigh that follow after mischief: they are far from thy law. Psalm 119:150
