Once upon a time I met you, whoever you are. I probably didn’t realize what an extraordinary person you were right away, but there was a time – at least one time – when I felt I could understand you, and when I saw your beauty over your faults. I’m sorry for all the other times. The times when I despised you for your humanness.
1 Blessed is the man
who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked
or stand in the way of sinners
or sit in the seat of mockers.
2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
and on his law he meditates day and night.
