Verse of the Day: "Because the poor are despoiled..."

By Administrator 11-22-2006

Because the poor are despoiled, because the needy groan, I will rise up," says the Lord; "I will place them in the safety for which they long." The promises of the Lord are promises that are pure, silver refined in a furnace on the ground, purified seven times.

- Psalms 12:5-6
