    I will also praise thee with the psaltery, even thy truth, O my God: unto thee will I sing with the harp, O thou Holy One of Israel. For the LORD is our defence and the Holy One of Israel is our king. O sing unto the LORD a new song for he hath done marvellous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory.

    Rich, could you be a little more precise with the book and chapter you are asking about please.
    Believe what the word says, not what people say!
  • Tammy
    Read the bible and let God lead and guide you to the truth because when push comes to shove it does not matter what man thinks you will stand before God alone on judgement day and what God shows you today will be your defense. Man is not perfect only God is and His Word. Seek and you shall find.
